Host Glen Andresen and guest Jim Gilbert tackle another timely topic: dormant pruning. If your fruit trees are about the size you want them, now is NOT the time to prune--that would be mid-summer. But if your fruit trees are too big, need some shaping help, or tend to overbear one year and not the next, then tune in for some practical advice on pruning. Plus a discussion of new and exciting fruit and veggie varieties, garden catalogs, and upcoming gardening events and classes.

Do we really have a choice? Abe sizes up the 2012 presidential election.

It's the mating call of the Naderites: there's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans. They're both corporate parties; the only difference lies in how far right-of-center they lie.

But there is a difference. It's not as stark as most progressives might like, but it's there, and it makes itself felt over time. That's why, as frustrated and as impatient as we might be, we've got to pay attention. With Joe away, Abe looks at the quadrennial liberal presidential dilemma.

A little over a year ago opposition to fracking was limited to a select group of environmental activists and people unfortunate to have their water supplies contaminated by neighboring fracking operations. But by the end of the year major media was reporting on independent scientific investigations that linked fracking with water pollution. And federal and state agencies were responding to the growing apprehension about water contamination with more studies and more regulation. What has changed in the last 12 months to ratchet up opposition to this use of hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas from the deep recesses of shale deposits?
