From the moment the snow flies, I count down the minutes until I can plant my garden. I assess the millimeters of snow melt with scientific precision—all in anticipation of starting my gardening.

This year, I sorted through dozens of podcasts and found one that helps me bide the time over winter and fits my gardening needs until planting season begins—Growing Together: A Gardening Podcast. Each episode starts with a gardening “dad” joke and just gets better from there with words of wisdom, practical knowledge and backstories all related to Minnesota gardening (Zone 3).

The podcast is presented by host John Lamb (a novice gardener) and Don Kinzler (lifelong gardener), who both have a way of making spring feel not so far away with their lighthearted energy that draws in gardeners of all levels.

I made it through winter with the help of my new podcast friends and their “thought” gardening. It’s a process that helps gardeners visualize and plan for the coming of spring. Let me tell you, my garden looks fantastic in my mind. I will say that I—for the first time—have my arms wrapped around what I need to and want to do for my spring planting season.

New episodes are released every week or two, last almost an hour and are worth every minute. Learn more at
