Spring arrives for real, and our Master Gardener is ready

Yes, frost can still happen for weeks ahead; into June in parts of Oregon. But some food and other crops can be planted in gardens now, with no risk of damage.

That's just one thing we learned recently from our gardening expert. Lynn Kunstman of Jackson County Master Gardeners knows a lot of tips and tricks and just plain science in the soil.

She joins us for a gardening Q&A, now weekly as growing season approaches.

Call live at 800-838-3760 or email in advance: JX@jeffnet.org.
