Periodically at First Light, University of Illinois Extension educator Richard Hentschel and host Brian O’Keefe get together for the ‘Farm to Table’ segment. They discuss everything from agriculture and agri-business to backyard gardening and your home landscape. This week, Richard and Brian ventured out into the snow and visited Platt Hill Nursery. Nursery Manager Chrissie Sieff took us out to an enclosure of saplings to talk about what the trees and shrubs in your yard need at this time of year
