Interview with Modern Cowboy, my Son

Interview with Modern Cowboy, my Son – The latest offering on Late Bloomer | Urban Organic Garden Show is an interview I recorded with my son in Pescadero, California, two weeks ago. Combined with photos I’ve taken over three trips to TomKat Ranch, my sound editor Christina Horgan, created a slideshow to accompany the podcast, which is also available on SoundCloud.

  1. Fine son you have there Kaye! So cool he got his inspiration from you and your Urban Garden!

    • Thanks, Scott, much appreciated. I think he’s more attracted to the wild outdoor work life than growing plants, but I hope there is a shift at some point. And I hope more young people find growing food sustainably attractive.

    • How are you? Haven’t heard from you in a long time. How did your project/experiment go? I think I recall you did not get your funding. I am, for the first time, reaching out to fans of Late Bloomer to raise funds for Season 6. If there is enough support, I will keep going. Happy Holidays!
