I'll be hosting a live broadcast for KDKA's Pittsburgh Today Live on Thursday morning between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. during the return of the Market Square Farmers Market. I've bought lots of produce there over the years and I'm excited to tell the story of a decade long Pittsburgh tradition.

The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy will be giving away recycled daffodil and tulip bulbs pulled from beds around the city. It's first come, first serve with a limit of 24 bulbs per person. I've grown the recycled daffodils before, they are wonderful.

The bulbs should be planted right away in good soil in an area which dries out in the summer. Next spring you can tell all your garden friends where you go them and what you didn't pay for them.

If you're there early enough, you might even get on TV!

The Farmers Market begins at 10 a.m and runs to 2 p.m.

Hope to see you there.
