Apr 11, 2019  | 27 min  | Ep 805

With a little ingenuity, almost anything can be grown here in Iowa, even a tropical plant like ginger. As one of the world’s most well known spices, ginger has been around for thousands of years. Koenig’s Acres Farm in Hampton, Iowa shows us how to cultivate our own crop of fresh ginger.

Then Chef Katy Meyer from Trumpet Blossom Cafe in Iowa City creates a savory and sweet recipe option for fresh ginger.

And flowers aren’t just a fantastic part of your garden, some of them can also be a tasty element in your kitchen. Aaron Steil from Reiman Gardens in Ames gives us some edible flower tips.
