Program Description

Program #3306: Edible October 11,2008

Edible gardens are making a comeback. The cost of food is skyrocketing—fuel costs are beyond what we've ever imagined here in the United States. Why not grow your own? This week, four different stories that feature edible gardening. Jamie Durie visits COPIA, the American Center for Food and Wine. There, he tours their extensive vegetable gardens and orchards to learn about their philosophy and, especially, their innovative beds that feature herbs, ornamentals, and edibles together. Paul Epsom visits an exclusively herb nursery where he learns about some very unique selections and this week's "Homegrown" will share a technique that will teach you how to dry some of your in-season produce for use throughout the winter. Then join Jamie as he learns about the benefits of compost tea in the garden.
