Gardeners are gearing up for this year's growing season, and many New Hampshire gardeners are hoping to grow their vegetables organically this year.

But that term, "organic," doesn't mean that same thing to every gardener.

Organic growing is the topic for this month's Science Cafe event in Nashua, and the moderator is David Brooks, who writes the weekly Granite Geek science column for the Nashua Telegraph and Granite Geek.org. He joined me to talk about organic gardening, and why so many gardeners may be best described by an acronym: P-M-O for "Pretty Much Organic."
