It's the week of President's Day which naturally leads to talking about roses named after presidents. Carol interviews Dee about her roses and follows this up with a lively discussion about the vegetable at least one president didn't like that Carol has decided to grow this year anyway. They end the podcast with a few suggestions on some related books. (And yes, Carol does know that caterpillars don't lay eggs, butterflies do; she doesn't know why she said caterpillar instead of butterfly at least twice in this episode.)
