Hilling Potatoes, Flowering Shallots and the Zombie Tomato – 3rd CBC Radio check-in

Here’s the link to my 3rd in-garden check-in with CBC’s The Homestretch.

This time around, we talked about something called “hilling” potatoes to encourage greater numbers of tubers, I had a question about whether I should pinch off the stalks on my shallots that looked like they were going to flower, and we talked about how the transplanted tomato which was blown clear across the yard, came back to life thanks to my husband. It has affectionately been termed by Tracy Fuller as the “zombie tomato”.
