Over the past 28 years, "The Victory Garden" (broadcast on PBS) has become one of the most enduring and respected "how-to" show on television. The show's current host is Michael Weishan, a nationally known garden designer who leads viewers through some of America's finest gardens, along with offering a number of segments devoted to small and large-scale projects for those with a green thumb who watch the show. Their Web site serves as a valuable adjunct to the television program, as it features detailed information on the projects covered in each segment, such as how to start a miniature terrarium, backyard composting, and selecting aesthetically pleasing planters. The Inspired Gardens section allows users to re-visit places from the program, including the Blithewold Mansion and Gardens in Rhode Island and the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. Epicureans will also find the several dozen recipes available here a delight, as they range from an adventurous crawfish and dill pizza to the more understated old-fashioned omelet.
