All About Vegetables on AU Monday

Aug 27, 2012

Wow, most gardens are displaying green, green, green. Hopefully, it’s not the green of weeds. How do you know when it’s time to pick something? Today USU Extension Vegetable Specialist, Dan Drost, is in studio for the entire hour.  When it comes to knowing when something is ripe, the sampling test may not always be practical. You don’t want to leave a cantaloupe on the vine with a bite taken out of it. On the other hand, unless you like them green, it’s pretty easy to tell when to pick a tomato. And I’ve never met an immature pepper that I didn’t like. On the latest Wild About Utah, you’ll learn about the invasive weeds called phragmites. They’ve been around for decades and can completely take over a wetland and crowd out anything beneficial, including other plants and wildlife.
