p(blue).(Editor's note: This chat is over, but the transcript is available to read here. And join Kim for another Table Talk chat, most Thursdays.)

You may recall that twice in recent months, Amy Pennington, author of Urban Pantry, has joined Kim for an hour of edible gardening discussion. Now, back by popular demand, Amy will join Kim this week for an August garden-themed chat. 

Bring your gardening and preserving questions — nothing is two challenging for these grow-your-own-and-preserve-it-too mavens.

Join Kim and Amy, right here, on Thursday, August  12, at 1 p.m. ET, 10 a.m. PT. Sign up below to receive an email reminder of the chat.

Kim, a trained chef and longtime food journalist, will soon publish a cookbook for people trying to eat less meat. Every week, she brings ideas, tips, and recipes to her live chats — right here at Table Talk, most Thursdays.
