Great Gardening Books: Living Seasonally

July 7th, 2008

While reading through Designing the New Kitchen Garden: An American Potager Handbook,the Gardens at North Hill were featured in the book. I remember thinking, “Wow, I’d like to see their gardens.” Then I found out that there was a book about the gardens at North Hill. Living Seasonally: The Kitchen Garden and the Table at North Hillis truly a fantastic read! I enjoyed every single page. Joe and Wayne do a fantastic job describing seasonal living. The writing was fantastic, it didn’t read like a normal gardening book. It is more of a biography of a garden. The book was filled with advice on which kinds of plants do well in a cool climate garden and tips about how to get specific things to grow well. I loved that they included a lot of information about their animals (from Scottish Highland Cows, to tiny Bantam hens). It truly was a wonderful read. I’m going to put it on my wish list of books I would like to add to my gardening library. I’m sure I’ll be reading it again soon.
