This week on We Dig Plants, hosts Carmen Devito and Alice Marcus Krieg are talking cold climate gardening, which is appropriate considering the latest snowstorm in NYC! Kathy Purdy, owner and publisher of Cold Climate Gardening, a specialized blog, joins the hosts talking about how she became interested in gardening and developed a successful green thumb in Upstate NY where temperatures can plummet to 30 degrees below zero! After the break, Kathy shares one of her fondest gardening mistakes and also what she is looking forward to gardening in particular this growing season. Tune in for more! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.







“I started a blog in 2002 mostly to share what I’d found out the hard way but also, hopefully, to find other people who could give me a hint or two.” [8:17]


“I’m always looking for something that will either bloom earlier or bloom later than what I’ve already got… just trying to make the growing season a little bit longer.” [22:20]
