Program Description

From garden bed to tabletop, fresh vegetables are a gardener's delight. Host Michael Weishan explores the exquisite vegetable garden at Arrows Restaurant in Ogunquit, Maine, and discovers some unique methods for growing tomatoes. Some of these fresh (and healthy!) tomatoes from the garden are then brought into the kitchen by Chefs Clark Frasier and Mark Gaier for a tasty summer gazpacho recipe. Back at The Victory Garden, head gardener Kip Anderson builds and installs a beautiful redwood trellis that could be done in a weekend; then guest Gary Koller joins Michael to discuss not-just-the-basics of pool landscaping.
