This was the third seminar that @carleyraetokyo and I attended this past weekend at the Alliant Energy Center for @wisconsinpublictelevision Garden Expo. This one was New, Different and Unusual Plants, which was my favorite one because all I want to grow are those kinds of things.
I heard about @mr_plantgeek through @bloomandgrowradio and he mentioned some of the plants he had helped promote and one of them was egg and chips, a grafting together of eggplant and potatoes, which I will try one day after I first master growing either (my eggplants are coming along nicely, I must say) and then figure out how to graft things properly.
I did, however, look the idea up and was redirected to a hybrid plant, a cross between kale and brussel sprouts, that was called kalettes, which Michael referred to as something else in his presentation. I was super excited to see them mentioned in this seminar though because they are my main plant goal for this year. I have a couple of sprouts growing right now. The cat did eat one of them, but I think I am going to figure these bad boys out. I can't wait!!! #newdifferentandunusualplants #mrplantgeek #wisconsinpublictelevision #kalettes #newplants #hybrid #gardenexpo #girltrip #madison #wisconsin
