Free vegetable plants with Doug on Sunday 6/8/14

Written by Doug Oster on .

Every month I team up with my radio partner Jessica Walliser for a free gardening/cooking demonstration at all four Giant Eagle Market District stores.

This month every person who attends will get a free vegetable plant courtesy of Bonnie Plants. They've donated a plethora of fascinating varieties which should thrive in your garden. All you have to do is sit through our presentation, taste three recipes and we give the plants away at the end. The whole thing usually lasts about an hour or so.

Our gardening topic is a good one, "Our Favorite Summer Blooming Perennials" Learn about some of Doug and Jess's favorite plants for the summer border. We'll highlight a few of our favorites for shady spots as well as for areas that receive full summer sun. We'll also talk about the care and maintenance of perennials and offer tips on how best to care for them through all seasons.

Here's what we'll be cooking- Summer Grilled Bananas, Tomato Braised Chicken Thighs and Meringue Pie Filled with Strawberries.

We have a lot of fun each month with our regular crowd. Come early so you can get a seat.

We're at the Bethel Park Giant Eagle Market District this Sunday at 9:30 a.m.

Robinson at 12 noon.

Shadyside at 2:30 p.m.

Pine at 5 p.m.

Hope to see you there.
