Podcast: Asian Vegetables with Wendy Kiang-Spray

Back in April we spoke with a fellow Great Grow Along speaker, Wendy Kiang-Spray about growing and cooking with Asian vegetables. Wendy is the author of The Chinese Kitchen Garden: Growing Techniques and Family Recipes for a Classic Cuisine. She’s a speaker and inspirational garden blogger, and she just lived through the cicada emergence in Maryland.

We chat about cicadas, gardening with her father, and more in this week’s podcast. Also, Wendy shares some great ideas for how to prepare some of her favorite Asian veggies. And she includes a gardening trick or two along the way.
