Lawn and Garden Show Resumes

Apr 22, 2019 | Regional News

April 22, 2019–The Lawn and Garden Show with University of Wyoming Extension horticulture educator Jeff Edwards and Jerry Erschabek of Torrington resumes April 26. Listeners can tune in at 8 a.m. every Friday to KGOS (1490 AM) and KERM (98.3 FM) to gain gardening tips and tricks.

For those not in the Torrington area, the podcast is available by searching for “UW Extension Lawn and Garden Podcast” at

“My co-host and I jokingly call this the “Horticultural Hour of Wonder,” Edwards said. “We have a list of topics we generally try to cover but since it is a live show, we can get off into some pretty unrelated tangents.”

The show sticks to topics related to lawn and gardens, ranging from soil, turf, garden, weeds, insects, planting, growing harvesting, preparing and eating, according to Edwards. The show has been going for about eight years, originally with the late Jerry Simonsen, former Goshen county horticulture educator, and then Dick Fulmer, a retired school teacher in Goshen County.

 “There is a lot of laughter, too, usually at ourselves because of something stupid we did in our gardens the previous week, or something our spouses bring to our attention that we covered in the previous show,” Edwards said. 

 The show is about 45 minutes long and will continue throughout the growing season.
