- Program Description
Roger Swain opens at the suburban garden lawn and tells us that fall is the best time to fertilize (10-16-20) to build a healthy turf.
Roger harvests compost "black gold" and uses it to improve the garlic bed. He plants 'Rocambole,' 'White Seedless' and 'Georgian Fire.' He shows the following catalog that has hundreds of varieties of garlic:
Filaree Farm 182 Conconully Highway Okanogan, WA 98840
He also plants tulip bulbs 'Sweetheart' (yellow/cream) which are early bloomers (April).
Holly Shimizu goes to Woodstock, Vermont, to the Billings Farm & Museum. Interpretation specialist Sue Cain brings her on a tour of the apple grove, vegetable garden, farmhouse and creamery. Indoor plants at the farmhouse are:
Davallia fejeensis 'Plumosa' Begonia x ricinifolia
Chef Marian creates a cold tomato sauce with hot pasta:
Drop cored tomatoes into boiling water for about 10 seconds. Plunge into ice water to stop cooking action. Peel away skin, seed and chop (4 cups).
Add 1/2 c. chopped sweet onion, 1 1/2 - 2 tsp. minced garlic, 1/2 c. sliced basil, 3 - 4 tbs. chopped parsley, 2 tsp. tarragon vinegar, 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil. Mix. Season with salt & pepper.
Serve over hot pasta.
Roger closes displaying Celosia 'Prestige Scarlet' (potted), a 1997 All-American Selection plant.
