Grow, Cook, Eat -- Eggplants and their relatives
A New Garden Series
Do you like to eat as much as you like to garden? Want to learn more about new and different varieties of vegetables? Wondering what to do when all those summer squash ripen on the same day?
This new series held on the third Wednesday of the month during the gardening season will help you solve all these dilemmas and more. Horticultural Program Specialists Gwen Montgomery and Cynthia Triolo will focus on a different garden vegetable each month to help bring gardening full circle for you and your family. They provide growing suggestions and planting tips for those tried and true varieties and take a closer look at some new and unusual varieties that you will want to try in your own garden. Seeds, recipes and best of all, tastes of a sample prepared dish will inspire you to get outside and plant something so that you too can go from garden to table. In April, we’ll concentrate on root crops and radishes, May will be all about tomatoes and June’s topic is beans.
