I'm back in the Chronicle--First Sunday of each month! See post below this one for details.

You can hear me on KALW's Your Call Radio as a podcast at yourcallradio.com. Holly Kernan is the moderator and Daniel Miller, of Spiral Gardens in Oakland was also on the show.The date of the show was April 18th, 2012.
I answered gardeners' questions on the Ronn Owens show (KGO 810 AM) on March 19th, 2013, and you can listen to the podcast (ads and all) at:
On June 1, 2014, I was interviewed for the KCBS program In Depth, a 30 minute show. The link to the podcast follows:
2015 is here and my spring speaking schedule is about to begin. Several of my appearences will be at Master Gardener trainings and events in several Bay Area counties, They aren't public, but I encourage you to check out the Master Gardeners if you haven't already, as they provide excellent gardening instruction and trained Master Gardeners are very helpful in the gardening community.
My first public appearance for the spring 2015 series will be at the San Francisco Landscape and Garden Show on Saturday, March 21, at 3:00 PM. The topic will be "Dining Gloriously from a Small-Space Food Garden." I will be speaking and showing a slide presentation about some of the best choices of crops to grow and ways to prepare them. I'll put some of the recipes I describe in the talk on this blog. Admission to the Show includes admission to all of its lectures. For more on the show, which runs March 18-22, and is located at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds, see Garden Show 2015.
Look for more talks to follow. I will probably be speaking at several San Francisco Public libraries next summer. I will list those talks here and you can also check sfpl.org.
On June 21, 2014, I spoke at the annual educational conference of the Herb Society of America, in Concord HIlton, CA. on the subject of Some Less Familiar Herbs for the Home Garden, how to grow and use them. I will be adding information about some wonderful culinary herbs I discovered to future talks.
Fans of the Master Gardeners of Alameda County Seminar will wonder why I didn't speak there last October. This is because the Alameda MG is switching to a spring event. They expected it to begin in 2015, but say now it may not happen until 2016. I hope to speak at that event, and will keep you posted.
While you can still read the archive of my columns, and I will still be writing some articles for the Chronicle and SFGate.com, I have been informed that they will no longer run my regular Q&A column after June 29, 2014, due to a reformatting of the paper. If you have gardening questions, you can send them to this blog, though I don't think you can send photos. I do write short answers to the blog's comments and there may be a new outlet for the Q&A format. (They tell me that a readers' poll requested more home design, food, and wine, less gardening, but that if enough readers wrote in to request more garden coverage again, they might reconsider.)
