This week we focus on one of our OSU-OKC horticulture students, Drew House, who shares his knowledge and passion for the legal growing of cannabis in Colorado.  Drew is part of a partnership with a long term plan to build and operate a growing facility in Colorado.  He shares his current involvement, and how his interest brought him to OSU-OKC.  Fascinating subject with a lot of angles of legality and social issues aside from health and horticulture.  We do our best to cover what we can in our short discussion!

In the market update, Cody lets us know they have the meat for your fall cooking!  A new chicken vendor, and their regular once per month beef supplier will be at the market this weekend...along with the continued greens, winter veggies and more.

Jamie reminds us of the details of putting our gardens to bed for the winter, and taking care not to bring pests inside with your potted plants.  Also, now is still a great time to plant your spring bulbs.

Poinsettia sale coming up soon...starts Wednesday, November 29, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Thanks for listening!
