5.0 von 5 Sternen outstanding book for the organic gardener, the history buff, or the food connoisseur 11. März 2013
Von Violetta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book surpassed my expectations. I ordered it mainly as a pleasant reminder of the beautiful gardens at Williamsburg, and also to learn more about heirloom tomatoes and organic gardening. It certainly satisfies those objectives, but it is also a fascinating account of what the early American settlers grew, what their attitudes were toward vegetables and fruits, and how the methods they used can still be applied today. The color photos are wonderful, and the text is historically accurate, full of quotes from eighteenth-century books on gardening, and a delight to read. This is a book you won't want to put down once you start reading it. It's simply superb.

The book is divided into 8 chapters, each of which deals with types of vegetables (including a few fruits): beans and peas, cabbage, salad greens, root crops, onions, cucumbers and melons, squash, pumpkins, and gourds, tomatoes and peppers. Then 3 more chapters discuss "luxuries and oddities" (such as artichokes), gardening under cover, and growing sticks. In each chapter there is a summary at the end that gives "essentials," such as planting directions, spacing, how to harvest seed, how to store it, and seed viability. Heirloom varieties are named whenever they exist.

There are many ideas in this book that gardeners today can put into practice. One that I liked a lot is a "tomato table," which is built from sticks and keeps the tomatoes off the ground and within easy reach for picking. It's ingenious, and certainly better than using poles or cages. There are also remedies for common pests, such as "lime water" to control aphids.

This is a book that will bring joy to gardeners, history buffs, and anyone interested in food. My next visit to Williamsburg will be even more fun, now that I know something about how the experts plant and tend the lovely gardens there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to read and full of information 24. September 2012

I enjoyed the book for its photos and detailed history of the plants in question. It is well-written and a wealth of information to anyone interested in plant history (origins of various vegetables, salad greens and herbs)and how they were raised in early American (Colonial Williamsburg, VA) gardens. Even though I was disappointed that it did not cover the fruits (like apples, pears, figs and pomegranates) grown at Colonial Williamsburg I would still highly recommend it. They also detail the various heirloom vegetables under each category that are planted at that historic site. I read this book before I went to Colonial Williamsburg and felt that it increased my knowledge of my garden tour.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book for this small patch gardener for sure 19. Juni 2014

I really love walking around Colonial Williamsburg and looking at all the gardens. I expected a good book, having purchased books about CW before. However, this one is quite useful and the advice/directions are clear. Each veggie is described, how it was used then, and what we can learn today. I also liked that there were options I'd never heard of. Anyone heard of a tomato table? I hadn't, but that will work VERY well in my space. SO.....this year, I'm building one for next season. Overall good purchase.

Vegetable Gardening the Colonial Williamsburg Way is a beautifully written and photographed book. The gardening information is excellent. I had a question as to where to purchase heirloom seeds mentioned in the book. I called the number listed and, to my surprise, spoke to the author, Wesley Greene. He was extremely helpful and very pleasant to talk with. I have placed the book at the top of my collection of gardening books.

This is a beautiful book with great photos. I found a couple of vegetables in there I had never heard of before. I grew some tomatoes this year that look exactly like the ones on the front cover. I have some seeds for veggies I've never actually seen or tasted and found information for growing them in this book. I'm making plans and looking forward to using the new things I have learned as I keep trying more things in my small space. I'm praying for a farm!
