HomeGrown ushers in summer this week with words from one of the world’s great naturalists – who jusummer-worldst happened to write a book called “Summer World” – and a look at growing figs in Kentuckiana.

Our fig expert is the University of Kentucky’s John Strang, who grows his own figs successfully and offers plenty of help for others interested in this delicacy. Downloadable MP3
