A Rich Spot of Earth by Peter Hatch
Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison
“As I head back out into the garden, I am always looking for inspiration. A Rich Spot of Earth covers the history of Thomas Jefferson’s extremely large and diverse garden at his Virgina plantation. In recent years master gardeners and historians have recreated the large beds filled with vegetables, fruits, and herbs. I loved the sections that discuss the individual plants.
In Vegetable Literacy you will enjoy informational text, lovely pictures, and recipes. The book is divided into plant families and covers vegetables that I was not immediately familiar with like salsify (found in Jefferson’s garden too!) I am now very encouraged to plant and to eat more vegetables! ” – Kimberly
