Our traveling garden this week is on Airport Road in Bismarck.

I'm at the Capital Farmers, there's a couple other farmers markets that go on in Bismarck and Mandan, besides. And I'm talking to Jared Stoll from Baldwin, and you grew all these things out there. Tell us Jared what'd you grow here?

"We got tomatoes, cucumbers, got some beets, eggplant. I have okra, radishes, zucchini, a little bit of everything," said Stoll.

They look good too. And you started selling this early in June, but now it's really coming on right?

"Really kicking on, the cold wet weather this spring pushed us off a little bit, had to replant but now we're really starting to pick up," said Stoll.

Yeah, I know you lost some things from the wetness and what are your best sellers?

"Cucumbers and tomatoes," said Stoll.

I bet. And corn is about to come in, I know some people have been bringing it. But that takes a little longer, of course especially this year. You didn't have to water too much did you?

"Not too much," said Stoll.

So anyway, if you want to save some money, get fresh produce, go to one of the farmers markets in Bismarck or Mandan. You'll save some money and get it fresh. I appreciate on being on Jared, with us.

"Thanks for coming out," said Stoll.

We'll have more tips next week, showing the garden off right behind us, and until then, good gardening.
