Interesting reading for July 4th!
“Founding Gardeners” by Andrea Wulf explores the botanical interests of the men who founded the United States of America. The book allows one to take a second look at these historical figures who are often only portrayed within the key brush strokes of our history. I found myself surprised that they had other interests, besides fighting and drafting new countries (silly I know). I think this book also holds a contagious excitement for gardening and farming. It shows all of the experimentation and creativity involved in the art of cultivating plants.
After “Founding Gardeners” fills you with a new zest for gardening, know that you are always welcome to come and experience it all first hand at our farm!
Enjoy those fireworks!
