Podcast Update! Mid-American Gardener: Episode 13 is now available for your listening pleasure.

This week, host Victoria Shepherd sat down with State Climatologist Dr. Jim Angel for a lesson on the weather. What with milder winters, earlier and wetter springs, as well as more humidity and higher temperatures in the forecast, we've got much to look forward to... But it's not all doom and gloom, we promise.

Check out this episode to find out more, and be sure to watch out for bonus outtakes on social media (ways to find us below). Jim just had so much valuable information to share, we can't resist sharing it all! And if you're still hungry for more, check out the Illinois State Water Survey and Jim's blog

If you have questions (and include photos if you have them), we’ve got you covered. Send questions via email to yourgarden@gmail.com, or post on Facebook, or leave us a voicemail at (217) 300-8224. Who knows, we just might look to include them in a future show or podcast.

Plus, you can now follow us on Instagram! How exciting, right?

Anyway, as always, thanks for listening.
