HomeGrown 06/21/09 - Figs in Kentuckiana & Summer World

HomeGrown ushers in summer this week with words from one of the world’s great naturalists - who just happened to write a book called “Summer World” - and a look at growing figs in Kentuckiana. Our naturalist is Bernd Heinrich, who has spent a lifetime matching his observation powers and writing abilities with the wonders of nature. Our fig expert is the University of Kentucky’s John Strang, who grows his own figs successfully and offers plenty of help for others interested in this delicacy. Downloadable MP3Find out more:
