Digging in the Dirt with Kevin Gallagher
Kevin Gallagher’s guest on Digging in the Dirt is Vincent Kay, a lifelong resident of Connecticut. “I came to know about Vincent through a couple of my listeners, Jim and Anne, who, like me, are grow-your-own-garlic enthusiasts. They turned me on to black garlic and when I needed garlic seed for this season recommended Vincent, who is one of Connecticut’s top garlic growers, as a source. So I contacted him to buy seed and came to find out he worked for Pacifica Network News as well as NPR. And in the small world category, it turns out Vincent served as News Director at WPKN from 1996-98. Now after 38 years he operates the state’s largest commercial beekeeping business and is the sole proprietor of Swords into Plowshares Honey, producing Connecticut’s finest wildflower honey and providing crop and orchard pollination. In addition, he grows a whole lot of garlic.”
