  • Holly Kerns, Sano, KY - Tomatoes. Yellow Squash. Cabbage. Peppers. Potatoes. Corn.
  • Prof. Jeff Scott, Antioch, KY Today's Topic: Answering, best I can, "Do they stay together." which seems to be the No. 1 question concerning the cooking qualities of apples. Today we have: Gala, Paula Reds, Ginger Golds, Snow Apples.. Galas are good all around eating and cooking apples. Paula Reds are excellent for cooking and for drying. Snow apples are old timey apples. I only have one tree. These are firm, sweet apples. Nobody has been asking, but no, there are no Ed Waggener Apples today. They are stubbornly hard apples, pretty okay if you've got the dentition to bite into them.
