We came across WTOP’s gardening column recently written by none other than Mike McGrath. You gardeners might remember Mike as the former editor-in-chief of Organic Gardening magazine.

First published by J. Rodale in 1942 as Organic Gardening and Farming, Organic Gardening taught people how to grow better food by cultivating healthier soil using natural techniques. Rodale might be called the father of the organic movement in the US.

Nice to find Mike again. He also hosts “You Bet Your Garden” on WHYY – well worth a listen.
