On Sunday, Feb 5th 2012 The Mike Nowak Show will host the first One Seed Chicago debate. Each of the candidates this year (cilantro, basil, chamomile) will have a representative on the air to make the case for the herb they hope to be the One Seed Chicago in 2012.
The Mike Nowak Show airs on Sundays, from 9 to 11am central time, WCPT 820AM and 92.5FM, 92.7FM, and 99.9FM. The debate will be streamed on the Internet, for those who prefer to listen that way or who live outside the broadcast area. You can also participate via social media. On Twitter we'll be using the #HerbDebate hashtag to cheer on our candidates and their representatives. I'll be on the show tomorrow, making the case for chamomile.
Hope you can join us for what should be a fun segment of seed politics soil slinging. You can learn more about chamomile, basil, and cilantro. Chicago metro-area residents can vote for their favorite seed here. A packet of the winner's seeds will be mailed out to every eligible participant in the Chicago area.

Also tomorrow, Mike will be talking to "Dr." Wally Schmidtke about one of the banes of indoor gardening, the fungus gnat. If you've ever had fungus gnats indoors, you know what an annoyance they can be. I'm looking forward to hearing Dr. Wally's strategies for controlling them (not that I've ever had this problem . . . ;)
