Dinner & A Book - Garden of Marvels

Episode #1401 - Garden of Marvels

Ruth Kassinger's book, A Garden of Marvels, Ruth wants to know why her kumquat tree died while her other plants flourished. Determined not to repeat her failure, she set out to learn the fundamentals of botany. We explore her book on the secret lives of plants while preparing an autumnal repast of pumpkin soup, fresh greens, roasted root vegetables and baked apples, the food of love.  Join me and my guest, Evie Kirkwood as we discuss how we discovered that flowers have sex and leaves eat air in Ruth Kassinger's A Garden of Marvels.
