This week on We Dig Plants, solo host Alice Marcus Krieg is talking garden myths with author and radio show host C.L. Fornari who joins on the phone via Poison Ivy Acres on Cape Cod. Talking about her new book "Coffee for Roses," C.L. elaborates how the book came about and how important it was to have a humorous spin. According to the book, word-of-mouth may be a great way to learn about some products, but word-of-mouth gardening tips can be a very bad idea. The age-old practice of passing along gardening tips and tricks is no guarantee you will get a good result...it might even do the opposite. In her new book, garden expert C. L. Fornari looks at 71 common garden practices and uncovers the truth behind the lore. Do marigolds keep the bugs out of the veggie patch? Will rusty nails turn hydrangeas blue? With humor and affection, she goes back in time to sort out the good, the bad and the just plain silly and tells us why. "Coffee for Roses" combines gardening history and expert advice into one useful, time- and money-saving package. This program was brought to you by Fairway Market.

"One of the things we learn from the garden is to never say never." [11:35]

"There are numerous home remedies that didn't make it into the book either." [13:38]

"People are prone to be a little wacky when it comes to products that are under the kitchen sink and spreading them around the garden." [13:53]

This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks welcomes Caleb Sisco, Founder at Farming Rust Foundation. Raising awareness about the phenomenon known as roya, or coffee rust, Caleb seeks to establish a portal for the voices of coffee farmers. The Farming Rust Foundation has been working closely with organizations and people directly involved with coffee farming communities. Through these relationships, Caleb explains that he wants to share these stories that might otherwise not be heard. The foundation also seeks to engage coffee companies to give back to coffee farmers. After the break, Caleb explains the farming details that surround roya infected coffee and theories of how coffee rust can be prevented. As it turns out, there are many researchers hard at work to come up with coffee rust resistant coffee beans. Tune in to hear the facts behind roya and how it could affect your morning joe! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"The US is a consumer nation. We care about consuming the product, not necessarily where it comes from." [13:40]

"If coffee rust gets too far gone, then we may lose our crops. It's kind of going the way of the dodo." [28:30]
