Pruning kiwis and grapes--is there a difference? Yes, but there are more similarities than differences.

Host Glen Andresen and guest Jim Gilbert compare and contrast the similarities and differences in pruning kiwis and grape vines (hint: there are more similarities than differences). Plus, what's going on in our garden (Glen) and farm (Jim), an appreciation of possibly the earliest blooming fruit tree (Japanese flowering plum), and Jim continues his short history of Oregon's land use planning laws, part 4.

As always, we'll have a new Plant of the Month (edible pod peas) and a new Garden Stumper (and the winner gets a free sharpening of a hand tool from Cully Farm Store in Northeast Portland!). Plus, our Dirtbag Dictionary term  is "water core."  And, of course, what's annoying Glen this month.

Don't forget, if you have a gardening question, or the answer to the Garden Stumper, you can email us at thedirtbag@kboo.org -- we'll answer your question on the air during the next show! Furthermore, you can record a voice memo of your gardening question on your phone and email that to us. We will play it on the air next month and answer your question (we hope).

The Dirtbag... Listen. Laugh. Learn.
