Next the Plantrama team explains some botanic terms, and discusses what to forage for or plant in your vegetable garden right now. The episode ends with advice to Sandy about when to bring her houseplants back inside after they have spent the summer out of doors.

Link to Ellen’s Rose Hip Soup:

This Ginkgo tree is an example of a dioecious gymnosperm. The yellow color on these leaves is the natural color of the fall foliage on this plant.

 Ellen’s Rose Hip Soup is as attractive as it is tasty.

In C.L.’s vegetable garden, the space to the left was where the garlic grew in early summer. Now it is planted with carrots, kale, pak choi, broccoli rabe, and lettuce. On the outside of the fence the basil is being picked and made into pesto, and between the basil rows is a new row of arugula that is just germinating in late August.
