The Victory Garden

Episode #2411

Cheryl A. Smith discusses the origins of the crabapple and the extensive life cycle it undergoes as it mutates from its first stage as seemingly harmless cedar apple rust growing on plant galls to a hairy, sprouting mass of overgrown spores. Bob Smaus visits the lush, picturesque garden of a swank Bel Air, CA home and Chef Marian whips up Tarragon Goat Cheese and Russian dressings to complement a nice head of iceburg lettuce.
