The All Things Green crew will be gone gardening for the summer!  But, before we go...we got a chance to talk with Mike Schnelle, Extension Specialist at Oklahoma State University.

We talk about pruning of early spring shrubs and trees, some general guidelines for herbicide use and summer watering.  It would be possible to talk with Mike every week about horticulture and not get to the limit of his wealth of knowledge, so we are happy to have him as a guest for our season finale!

Keep up with us on Facebook for photo updates this summer, and be sure to catch Jamie on AM 1000 KTOK every Saturday for the Garden Party radio show from 11:00 to 1:00 CDT.  If you are not in the OKC area, the show can be found on iHeart Radio.

The OSU-OKC Farmers Market continues with their summer hours, every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 400 N. Portland, OKC.  Don't miss their summer produce and products!

We will be back at the end of summer with new podcasts...thanks for listening!
