What evil strikes fear in the heart of the common gardener? Lock up your daughters, listeners! This month on RadioGarden, it's Edible Rebels: stories from two well known food gardeners, one who thinks we should all be afraid, and one whose methods proved tantamount to fear itself, at least for her neighbors.
First, bestselling author Amy Stewart reads an audio essay adapted from her new book Wicked Bugs about insects, the original edible rebels. Then I talk to Ivette Soler, author of The Edible Front Yard, about what happened when she decided to turn her front lawn into a food garden.
