Episode-2027- Twelve Overlooked Vegetables for the Garden

Purple Tomatillo – An Overlooked Garden All Star

In the spring and early summer talk a walk in the garden section of any big store or even typical smaller plant nurseries.  Mostly you see peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and a few other veggies and herbs.

There are so many other options though and many are tougher than our stand alone favorites.  Fore instance so many people love growing tomatoes but in many areas they are plagued by early and late blight.  You can usually get a decent yield and then you hit a wall, well why not grow tomatillos instead.  They make fantastic salsa, are great grilled and are pretty much immune to most disease and pests.

Today we walk though 12 such options for your garden and in most of the country there is still time to get these guys up and running for your fall planting.
