Recently I had the great opportunity to talk about starting a vegetable garden for another GMA related segment in New York. And specifically, they gave me plenty of opportunity to talk about doing it for under twenty-five dollars. They even devoted six whole minutes to tell the story. Believe me, that's a lot of time for a national television segment so I was thrilled about that.
So now that I have my handy little video camera, I thought it would be fun to take you along for a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on to get ready for one of these segments. In hindsight, I should have started documenting all the prep work well before leaving for New York. Many of the items on the table that you see in the pictures and video were carefully packed in my suitcase and taken right onto the set. I wanted to be sure we had everything I needed to talk about. The cake topper and pizza box, even the seed starting mix traveled with me from North Carolina. And just to be safe, I even had a pizza in NYC the night before the segment so I could be sure to have the right box on set.

I've already documented the outside garden reveal and I'll edit that piece next. Expect to see that video as the next post in a few more days. I hope you're enjoying these entries and if you have any questions or comments, please let me know by posting your comment below.
