As I’ve often said in my blog, I enjoy listening (and being on) Garden Talk with Larry Mueller. This week, Larry’s guests are none other than the Vicars of Vegetables — Drs. Irwin Goldman and James Nienhuis of the University of Wisconsin Department of Horticulture.
I. Goldman J. Nienhuis
As a person that knows these two personally, I can tell you that their radio personas are as genuine as the men themselves. They are very knowledgeable and a hoot to listen to. If you think that are great to listen to, just think how fun it is to have them as your professor for World Veggie Crops or Plant Genetics!
For this week’s recipe of the week, we are going to take a step back from a written recipe and watch a master at work!
Dr. James Nienhuis is a horticulture professor and pepper breeder at the University of Wisconsin. Many of you probably know him by his other name, as he is 1/2 of the dynamic duo better known as the “Vicars of Vegetables” (the other Vicar is Dr. Irwin Goldman). The Vicars of Vegetables make many appearances on Wisconsin Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Television, and at various events throughout the state.

For those of you that have been following my blog for a number of years, you have undoubtedly seen various posts about the ‘Vicars of Vegetables’, Drs. Jim Nienhuis and Irwin Goldman of the University of Wisconsin – Madison Horticulture Department. Jim and Irwin are good friends of mine — heh, I’m the one that got Jim to ‘love’ eggplant dishes — and their time spent on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Garden Talk with Larry Mueller” is always a good program to listen to. With the business of my last few weeks, I had not had a chance to visit the Wisconsin Public Radio website to catch their latest episode. However, I was in luck!
