Draining the Garden

Good to Grow follows Scott McGillivray as he and his family prep, plant, and harvest their fourth-annual organic vegetable garden. Scott shares his passion for gardening as he tries to make healthy food and healthy eating exciting to his young daughters. Each episode follows the growth of the family’s seasonal garden and reveals Scott’s tips and tricks for the perfect crop.

In this episode of Good to Grow Scott deals with a serious threat to the garden – flooding! Fortunately he knows how to drain a garden…or at least he’s willing to give it a shot.

What good is growing fruits and vegetables if you can’t eat them? Every week Scott tries a new recipe using the foods he and his family have grown. This week Scott makes a delicious beet and goat cheese appetizer and even wins over a non-believer.  To see the recipe click on the image below.
