The Zesty Garden

The Zesty Garden is UPR's original gardening and outdoors program. The Zesty Garden is more than just the usual garden conversation show.

Expect insider information about Utah hiking and biking trails along with their flora and fauna. Learn what plants you should avoid putting in your landscape with the Wait, Wait. . .Don’t Plant That! segment. Literary musings will encourage your soul and inform your mind.

To round out the hour, show host Bryan Earl will infuse his own green thumb experiences along with your questions and comments.

The Zesty Garden airs Thursday at 10 a.m. on Utah Public Radio.

  On the Zesty Garden today, we discuss a new name for the gardening program, and talk with Jerry Goodspeed, USU Weber COunty extention agent. I talk to Jerry about the process of gardening, and planting indoors before the weather warms up.


  Welcome to the first edition of the Thursday gardening program. With me in studio is Diane Alston, USU Extension Entemologist. Right now, gardening is just getting underway, despite the fact there is a little over a foot of snow on the ground.
