Program Description

This program we get berry tips from Roger, Bob visits LotusLand, Bob plants radishes and Marian fixes a fish and radish dish.

Lotus Land with Bob Smaus (13:11) [in my opinion, not a good candidate for recycling. The garden is bizarre, the water in the ponds murky and sedimented]; Tim Nourse in the Suburban Garden on planting strawberries. Fish with radish (1:13)

Victory Garden in Lexington, MA (Lexington Gardens also the Suburban Garden)
