Program Title: Fantastic Vegetables and The Water of Our Discontent
Description: This episode of Harrowsmith Radio is about extraordinary vegetables, wild weather and the water it brings with it.

First up, we head to the east coast, the outskirts of Halifax, Nova Scotia, to be exact. There we meet Niki Jabbour. Niki’s a bestselling gardening writer and author of Veggie Garden Remix. She's discovered hundreds of vegetables beyond the rank and file tomatoes, lettuces and squash and other produce you might have already tucked into the soil of your garden. Ground cherries and snake gourds for everyone!

Next, we head to Perth County and chat with sheep farmer Sarah Loten. She's had to cope with the  wild, wet weather that has been playing merry hell with a sheep farm.

Host(s): Wayne MacPhail
Featured Speakers/Guests: Niki Jabbour is the award-winning author of three books - The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener (2012 American Horticultural Society Book Award), Groundbreaking Food Gardens, and Niki Jabbour's Veggie Garden Remix (Winner of the 2019 American Horticultural Society Book Award, Winner of the Gold Award from GardenComm, and short-listed for a 2019 Taste Canada Award). She also writes for magazines like Fine Gardening, Horticulture, and Birds & Blooms.
