Mike rocks. Period.
If you don't know him, you need to remedy that. Hear him weekends on your local NPR radio station. He's a complete goofball – a perennial pun purveyor and a real Philly guy. Mike doesn't tell you how to grow tomatoes. He tells you how to grow tah-may-tahs.
The best thing about Mike is that he's one smart cookie – and he's passionate about keeping chemicals out of America's yards and gardens.
If you can't get his radio show in your town, check out his amazing online archive. A veritable encyclopedia of gardening success.
