USDA Map Heats Up! + Five Questions w/ Peggy Riccio
Nov 22, 2023 Season 1 Episode 27
Bevin Cohen, Small House Farm

One of the biggest things happening in the (gardening) world right now is the new USDA Hardiness Zones Map! Plus horticulturist and garden educator Peggy Riccio is joining us on the podcast to talk about her information-packed garden website resource, pegplant.com and to answer 5 Questions!  

Peggy talks about why basil is her favorite garden herb… and not just Genovese basil, but all of the basils! She also shares her recipe for flavorful Thai Basil Syrup. 

Peggy runs the well-known garden resource website PegPlant.com and during the pandemic she launched a Facebook group dedicated to Culinary Herbs and Spices. You can find her FB group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/culinaryherbsandspices

Peggy’s shoutout today was True Love Seed’s podcast, Seeds & Their People. https://trueloveseeds.com/https://trueloveseeds.com/blogs/satpradio

This is a wonderful seed company dedicated to the preservation of seeds, stories, cultures and cuisine!

Before the interview, Bevin shares some big news from the gardening world! First, Baker Creek Seed Company’s annual Whole Seed Catalog is starting to arrive in mailboxes across the country! This is always an exciting time of year. The catalog is the largest in the world, 532 pages!

The Whole Seed Catalog is loaded with beautiful photos and seed stories, including a couple of seed stories researched and written by Bevin. He’s giving away a free copy of this incredible catalog in the Seeds & Weeds Facebook Group

One of the biggest things happening in the (gardening) world right now is the new USDA Hardiness Zones Map. The last map was released in 2012 and since then, more than half the country has shifted up a half-zone warmer!! Bevin shares his thoughts on this situation and reads an excerpt from a recent Associated Press article.
