Mid-American Gardener: Squirrels plundering tomatoes - and more!


On this week’s episode of Mid-American Gardener, guest host Shane Cultra and panelists Kay Carnes, Jim Appleby, and Rusty Maulding answer viewer phone calls and emails. They discuss a variety of topics, including how to save tomatoes from a squirrel invasion, more on identifying tree illness, and taking care of hydrangeas.
