We had the pleasure of interviewing Gary and Jeri Garles on this morning's show!  Therese and I are serious about gardening...well not so much serious as confused.  So we thought it would be a good idea to interview our friends the owner's of "The Landscaper" business.  And what a good idea it turned out to be!!!  I mean really what are friends for but to pick their brains on radio and get landscaping ideas for FREE?  We had so many questions that one show has turned into two so make sure to tune in next week April 10th to hear the conclusion of our interview.  And if you missed this morning remember we rebroadcast on Thursday mornings at 10am.

Gary actually lets Jeri get a word in edgewise in the second show, boy is he excited about horticulture!  Thanks Gary and Jeri for coming out and suffering the abuse!  We had fun.

Join us on March 2 at 1 pm for Writers' Voices with Monica and Caroline.  Our guest this week is Cindy Buck, co-author of "Chicken Soup for the Gardener's Soul", and editor of "The Soul of Success: A Woman's Guide to Authentic Power" and other books.  Cindy will talk about her experiences writing, publishing, editing and teaching, including what she has learned about how to make a living as a writer.
