You Bet Your Garden’s Mike McGrath’s in town this weekend…five reasons to go see him!

If you are a gardener and a WPSU listener, chances are quite good that you’ve heard of Mike McGrath. The long-time garden writer has a fantastic show “You Bet Your Garden” that runs Sundays at 11:00 a.m. on WPSU. He’s coming to State College this weekend for a Friday evening dinner and a Saturday morning talk, both benefitting WPSU.

Mike’s show is like an hour-long clinic on organic gardening and lawn care.

Invasive weed makes a great pesto!

Invasive weed makes a great pesto!

You’ve probably seen garlic mustard during a walk at a park or pretty much anywhere in Pennsylvania. It’s an invasive, noxious weed that features broad, round-ish deep green leaves, and eventually puts up a stalk of small white flowers. It’s a hardy plant, sometimes even growing right through winter if it’s mild enough.

The plant is believed to have been brought here in the 1800s by settlers from Europe, and it has quickly spread. If left unchecked, garlic mustard can take over an ecosystem, and greatly harm native species. Deer do not care for it, so they end up eating competing plants, allowing it to spread even more efficiently.

Most biologists encourage removal of this plant when you see it on your property, and a great way to do that is harvest it to eat it, as garlic mustard is actually edible. And one way to do that is make a spring pesto with it.

Editor’s Note: Today Local Food Journey ask you, the reader, to please support WPSU-TV during a time when they need our help the most. Please see below, and once you’re ready to give you can do so at this link: http://wpsu.org/donate/pledge/

Dear Neighbors,

At WPSU we believe in the example set by the words of Fred Rogers. We believe in communities working together, and we are committed to providing Central Pennsylvanians with the programs that you count on each and every day. But right now we have a need and are asking you to respond.

We are grateful for the financial gifts of support that we received during our March TV fundraising campaign. But unfortunately, we fell short of our goal and need to raise an additional $20,000. These dollars are critical for us to continue to pay for the best programming for children and adults across the arts, science, and news, as well as telling stories from our own neighborhoods.
