The Victory Garden
Vanderlip Garden Palos Verdes, California (#2418)
Landscape contractor Roger Cook tours a wheel-chair accessable garden with home gardener Kitty Stein in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Elin Vanderlip and her daughter Narcissa Vanderlip-Fuller give Bob Smaus a tour of their Italian villa and garden home in Palos Verdes, California. In the Victory Garden, Roger Swain admires the blooms on the water lillies and the Momo Botan water lotus known as the sacred lotus in India. The raspberries are ripening, but the sweet corn was in danger of being pre-harvested by racoons. Swain introduces the use of an electric fence charge (4,000 volts) to keep racoons out of the garden. Marian Morash, author of THE VICTORY GARDEN COOKBOOK, makes a corn salad. [26 minutes]
