That was certainly a cold snap, but did it kill my plants?

Ice in Portland, but is the plant dead?
Cold weather effects, pruning kiwis and grapes, and is it too early to plant?

Host Glen Andresen and co-pilot Jim Gilbert offer up a live pre-recorded show made on 2/5/24. Oh boy, what an ice and cold and wind storm we had, but how much plant damage was actually done? It's too early to tell so don't go digging up any plants until you are absolutely sure. But how to tell? We tell all. Also, it's time to finish up your dormant pruning of kiwis and grapes. And a report on the latest showings of Jim and Joe's documentary, An Oregon Story.

As always, we'll have a new Plant of the Month (tea) and a new Garden Stumper (the winner gets a free sharpening of a hand tool from Cully Farm Store in Northeast Portland!). Plus, our Dirtbag Dictionary term is "cole" as in "cole crops." And, of course, what's annoying Glen this month...or at least what he's been thinking about.

Don't forget, if you have a gardening question, and don't want to call in, you can always email us at thedirtbag@kboo.org -- we'll answer your question on the air during the next show.

The Dirtbag, a garden variety show... Listen. Laugh. Learn.
