SG577: Day One of the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling
I am really so thrilled about today’s show. It’s the beginning of a three part series about the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling held in and around Washington DC at the end of this past June.
To start off the series, we will be reviewing Day 1 of the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling. We’ll be sharing highlights from venues like Hillwood, the Franciscan Monastery, and the many gardens along the National Mall including the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden and the Archives of American Gardens.
I’m so pleased that fellow garden bloggers are also here with me to share their thoughts and opinions on Day One. You’ll be hearing the lovely voices of:
Tonya Peele of Plant and Shoot
Dee Nash of Red Dirt Ramblings
Peggy Riccio of Pegplant.com
Kathy Jentz of - Cats and Gardens and Washington Gardener Magazine serving readers in DC, Maryland, and Virginia
Thanks for Listening!

What Listeners Are Saying...
I never write reviews but this is the best gardening podcast out there. Jennifer has interesting topics and guests and is not one bit annoying like some others are. I love that she involves her kids at the end of the podcast - usually with poetry or music. Really good podcast.

Still Growing is one of the reliably informative gardening podcasts from North America. The format consists of an intro (personal gardening status chat, seasonal remarks), an extended interview with a guest, and an outro with funny outtakes, side remarks, and some chatter (poems, readings) from the host's children. The podcast is focused on reliable knowledge - the guests are typically experts like academics, master gardeners, gardening entrepreneurs or public garden leaders. The intro and especially the outro give it a homey feel. Given I live in the high northern region, just a little below the Polar Circle, I'm always looking for more cold-weather oriented gardening information. Jennifer Ebeling is in Minnesota, so that's helpful to me! Vegetable gardening (my main interest) gets a good share, but is not predominant. Most topics transcend your specific gardening interest and are applicable to many styles: landscaping principles, vermicomposting, greenhouses. The episodes are typically an hour long, which is just fine for me.

Best gardening podcast out there. Her preparedness leads to a good interaction with the guests and brings out the best in them. Very informative and yet personable.

This is a great podcast. Really well produced and organized with good sound quality. I love the mix of information and personal touches. Jennifer has great guests and asks the best questions. You can tell she really does her homework. I listen to several gardening podcasts and this is my absolute favorite!
