North Hill Garden in Readsboro and "To Eat: a country life" by Eck and Winterrowd

I just finished "To Eat", before my vacation (which included getting our older daughter off to the University of Paris for a year and our younger daughter back to Bryn Mawr and finally burying Dad's ashes by his gravestone in Valley Forge, PA).  This was the last book by Joe Eck and Wayne Winterrowd and is delightful.  Each chapter is a different food and they describe planting, growing or raising it and discuss other things about it such as cooking it, where they first tried it, varieties, etc.  It is informal and friendly and has very short chapters.

After reading the book, we visited the Garden: North Hill in Readsboro, VT which is open to the public Fridays and Saturdays at this time of year.  We spent an hour or two meeting the dogs and cats, seeing the plantings and taking a few pictures which I am trying to post on facebook.
