Magnificent photos, fantastic tips, recipes – it’s time to bring back simple gardening pleasures. Here in the northern hemisphere, our gardens are moving into autumn. Harvest festivals dot the weekend landscape.
It’s time to reap the rewards of your summer efforts and dream of next spring. Will you plant melons? What variety? Can you save seeds from this year’s crop?
Here is a magnificent book on melons! The photos are worth the price alone, but there’s a lot more. Picking and choosing, gardening tips, how to save seeds, recipes, and an amazing array of varietal descriptions. It’s a Number 1 New Release in Vegetable Gardening on Amazon.
The Melon is a perfect gift for the gardener in your life. In addition to melons, Amy Goldman is the author to know if you’re interested in heirloom tomatoes, squash, and more historic garden treasures. And there, in the chapter titled Watermelon Portraits, you’ll find my ode to the ancestral desert watermelon. I’m honored to contribute to such a thoroughly wonderful book.
