Connecticut farmer Patti Popp of Sport Hill Farm in Easton joins us live—and we take your calls about planting and cooking the harbingers of spring: asparagus, peas, new potatoes, ramps, and garlic scapes—everybody wonders what to do with garlic scapes! We invite you to shout out your local farms and farmers, too. Farming is unbelievably hard work and we want to celebrate their efforts to bring local, healthy food to communities all over the state. Have you started your seeds yet? If your living room is overrun with heat pads and plant lamps, we want to hear from you. What are you looking forward to cooking most? We want to know.
Robyn Doyon-Aitken and Catie Talarski produced this show.
