Each spring Skip Mancini, host of Growing on the High Plains, stops by HPPR's studio to help-out during the station's on-air membership campaign. While at the studio, she also holds a drawing, in which she'll take off across the High Plains to hand-deliver one lucky listener a giant basket full of her garden's summer harvest.
Last week Skip set off for Quinter, Kansas with her basket brimming with everything from ripe red tomatoes to bell peppers, squash, zucchini and much more. In Quinter, Skip met with longtime HPPR member-listener, Sharon DuBois and made good on her promise of delivery.
You can learn more about Skip's gardening adventures and get a few gardening tips of your own by tuning in to Growing on the High Plains every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. CT and Saturday at 8:35 a.m.
