Gardening is often a solitary hobby, only shared with friends when they come by for a tour or to take some of our extra zucchini off our hands. But every so often during those marathon weeding days, don’t you wish you had some goofy gardening buddies to keep you company? I mean, the dog’s cool and all, but he doesn’t crack jokes about rude-sounding botanical names, now does he? Gardening podcasts seem to be all over the place in terms of what to expect – some are friendly and funny but not instructional, some are radio shows that are meant to teach a broad beginner’s audience, and some are very instructional indeed, but maybe a little too serious. Many gardening podcasts are new enough that they’re still finding their voice, which is awesome. If a podcast doesn’t strike my fancy one day, I’ve found future episodes often will, so I just download everything and see what mood catches me as I’m gardening.
