This Saturday is Garden Fest at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at the Burden Center on Essen at I-10. This plot of land is an escape from the city right in the middle of it all. LSU does a lot of horticulture and ag-based research there, and it can be really fun to take hayride through the grounds. What's even more fun is eating omelets from the Louisiana Egg Commission, good food from LCI students, and then drinking Louisiana rum early in the morning. I'll be there to judge a Louisiana rum cocktail contest at 11 AM. Come join me for all the good times! And, as a special treat, I had Lisa Manda from the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry as well as Jeff Kuehny from the LSU AgCenter on my radio show this past week to talk about all the Garden Fest events. Listen to it below. There's also a special interview with the Watershed Distillery in Columbus, OH!
