Food’s popping out of gardens! Willi Galloway talks about some of the resources she turns to when the harvest is brought into the kitchen. Willi loves the cookbook, “Plenty,” by the Israeli born, London based chef Otto Lenghi. She also turns to Poppy Chef Jerry Traunfeld’s book, “The Herbal Kitchen.”
There are more resources you’ll hear about on the podcast.
Marty has been thinking about protecting her edibles and ornamentals. She shares the website Good Bug Guide, from King County. Know your bugs, the good and the bad. And of course, no pesticides or herbicides are necessary. You can protect your plants and eat your greens through organic methods. Natural Lawn care, and no need to separate edibles and ornamentals.
We grow our gardens because we want to be closer to nature and, well, bugs are nature too.
And finally, Steve is looking for more annual color for this time of year. Marty has some great suggestions.
It’s short but there’s a cornucopia of information.
