The Zesty Garden - August 13
What’s orange, is watered about every 10 minutes, and has a baby-cam posted so parents can see how it’s doing. It’s a giant pumpkin! Today we check in with Lindsay Bench from the Utah Giant Pumpkin Growers to see how her pumpkin is doing. Then Dan Drost will give some tips on how to pick a ripe melon. He’ll also help you get over the loss of your tomatoes to curly top. In Petals and Prose, Janett Warner recommends the Blue Grama Grass. Then on Petals and Prose, Nancy Williams re-visits the San Francisco Zen Center of Green Gulch Farm with a reading from Gardening at the Dragon’s Gate.
