Join Sebastian Eugene Bartholomew, #Phytopoetry Expert, as he muses on mold, ponders plants, and bellows bug ballads. S.E. Bartholomew specializes in intellectual modesty and tact, using his vast store of knowledge to easily solve complex pest and plant issues.  

For real, nobody knows it all. But we can help each other out with everyday problems. That’s where University Extension comes in. Extension translates science and addresses pest management issues in fields, homes, gardens, and elsewhere. Unlike S.E. Bartholomew, Extension is here to help. Check out the video descriptions on YouTube for Extension resources related to the phytopoetry topic.
