How to Grow Broom Corn and a Seed Giveaway

I feel in love with the broom corn display on Janet Cassidy’s Autumn farm house front porch share on social media. Over the past few years I’ve been growing different popcorn and gem corn in my home garden and this looked like a variety I would enjoy watching grow and using as a decoration after harvest. I asked food preservation expert Janet Cassidy if she would come on a GardenChat Live presentation and share with us about the broom corn she has been growing in her home garden.  You can watch the replay via the Youtube link  featured on this page or you can download the podcast below to hear the show.

Below is the recording from a very special GardenChat Live that streamed Wednesday 3/30/ 2016 on the BLAB network.  During the 40 minute show food preservation expert Janet Cassidy of JansJars.blogspot.com shares information about growing broom corn in the home garden.  We had a few folks in the chat room live who were curious about pest and pumpkins so be sure to click the youtube video below to watch the show for details.
