Heirloom vegetable gardening : a master gardener's guide to planting, growing, seed saving, and cultural history by William Woys Weaver( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the culmination of some thirty years of firsthand knowledge of growing, tasting, and cooking with heirloom vegetables. A staunch supporter of organic gardening techniques, Will Weaver has grown every one of the featured 280 varieties of vegetables, and he walks the novice gardener through the basics of planting, growing, and seed saving. Sprinkled throughout the gardening advice are old fashioned recipes - such as Parsnip Cake, Artichoke Pie, Pepper Wine, and Henry Ward Beecher's Favorite Turtle Bean Soup - that highlight the flavor of these vegetables. This is the first comprehensive garden book on this subject that also includes meticulous research on the origins and dates of introduction for most of the varieties discussed, as well as fascinating stories and lore about the vegetables. It is illustrated with over one hundred color photographs taken in the author's garden and with over two hundred line drawings and includes a listing of commercial seed and plant stock sources

Sauer's herbal cures : America's first book of botanic healing, 1762-1778 by Christopher Sower( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Colonial Americans who needed to relieve a stomach ache, concoct an insect repellent, brew a batch of hair dye, or mix a soothing nerve tonic knew just where to turn: Johann Christopher Sauer's Compendious Herbal, the most popular collection of herbal remedies of the time." "Originally written in German by a Philadelphia apothecary and printer (who along with his father were business rivals of Ben Franklin), the secrets of this long-lost classic have now been recovered through the translation of food historian William Woys Weaver. Adding descriptions of the 266 plants listed, period woodcuts, and cultural information that place Sauer's advice in its historical context, Weaver has made this treasury of herbal lore accessible to today's readers while preserving the unique mixture of quaint advice, common sense, ancient wisdom, and practical gardening knowledge that made the original so useful and endearing."--Jacket
