The Victory Garden hits the road to visit Massachusetts' Old Sturbridge Agricultural Fair, where history comes alive and host Michael Weishan gets a firsthand look at how gardening was done in the 19th century. Michael then heads out to the vegetable garden to get started on his own pumpkin patch, and is joined by gardener Kip Anderson, who shares his tips and techniques for growing these autumn-minded gourds as well as winter squash. We'll also examine the current growth, and amazing selection, of seed-saving and heirloom variety fruits and vegetables... You won't believe the delicious treats we unearth! Finally, we'll be joined by radio personality Jim Zoppo as he helps us answer our viewer's perplexing questions.
