Growing Vegetables in Extreme Heat


The hot and humid summers in Florida make it hard to grow vegetables, but if you look to Asian cuisine, you’ll find veggies suitable for our steamy climate, and foods that are good for your health.

In her on going “Gayle On The Go” series airing weekdays on Bloom, Gayle Guyardo catches up with a top agriculture expert in Florida, Kenneth Coogan of Critter Companions, to find out how to grow three healthy vegetables right in your own back yard.

Bloom airs in 40 more markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
