Program Description

This week on The Victory Garden, we're all about outdoor living. We'll finish up (and finally relax in) our urban project garden in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Host Michael Weishan will explain the solutions to some of the problems our city gardeners faced — including container gardening with annuals, providing fencing for privacy, and selecting the perfect furniture. We'll also visit a garden in the Netherlands where the owner sees her garden as a pure extension of her home. Back at The Victory Garden, gardener and chef Ellen Ecker Ogden author of A Cook's Garden makes a cool summer salad with arugula.
