Ring In Spring With Local Farmer Patti Popp (LIVE)


Connecticut farmer Patti Popp of Sport Hill Farm in Easton joins us live—and we take your calls about planting and cooking the harbingers of spring: asparagus, peas, new potatoes, ramps, and garlic scapes—everybody wonders what to do with garlic scapes! We invite you to shout out your local farms and farmers, too. Farming is unbelievably hard work and we want to celebrate their efforts to bring local, healthy food to communities all over the state. Have you started your seeds yet? If your living room is overrun with heat pads and plant lamps, we want to hear from you. What are you looking forward to cooking most? We want to know.

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and email at seasoned@ctpublic.org.

Robyn is the senior producer of Seasoned, a show celebrating food and farms. She’s filled in as a producer for several of our local shows, most notably, Where We Live. In 2021, she was part of the team that received first place in the Interview category from the Public Media Journalists Association for the episode “Who Owns History? Connecticut Woman Sues Harvard For Family Photos.” She produced The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze® from November 2015 until the broadcast ended. Before that, she ate her way through the previous seven years of Fine Cooking magazine while its web producer. Robyn is food-obsessed, loves to bake, and constantly thinks about people in the food world, both nationally and locally, who have compelling stories to tell about food.
