A couple months ago I had the opportunity to help my friend, Theresa Loe, during a TV shoot in her garden for the PBS gardening show called GROWING A GREENER WORLD. Have you seen it? I have, but not on my local PBS station since KPBS didn't buy this great show last year. (Tsk, Tsk, KPBS!) Your PBS station may not have bought it either, but never fear - www.growingagreenerworld.com posts complete episodes the day after they air nationwide for the rest of us to enjoy, learn and be inspired.
Early that day the cameraman asked if I could operate the third camera for them during the filming and I had a blast as" camera-girl" for a day.
My friend wasn't the only one on camera that day. Earlier in the year Theresa gave me a new chicken for my birthday (what a terrific friend!) and I named my new Buff Polish hen, Thyme. I live a couple hours away from my friend and due to our busy lives I haven't picked Thyme up yet and brought her to her new coop here at Edgehill Herb Farm, which meant Thyme was in the coop at my friend's house during the filming. Thyme is now a backup hen! A PBS extra chicken... When you see the episode, whether on TV or online, look for the blond hen in the coop that looks like Phyllis Diller - she's mine!
