In 18th-century gardens, the broccoli was purple and cucumbers grew to 3 feet long. Lime water controlled aphids, and a simple tile trapped slugs in the lettuce beds. And melon seeds were improved by walking about with them in your pockets.

In Vegetable Gardening the Colonial Williamsburg Way, historic gardener Wesley Greene shares history and folklore along with practical advice on growing vegetables herbs, garden tools, and cultivation techniques. This is the ultimate organic gardening book—from a time when organic was the only garden.

Well written and great information


Got the book for Christmas and absolutely love it! Explains how they grow many different types of vegetables. Also talks about their history and place in 18th century America. My favorite are the old gardening techniques, some I will surely use in my garden.
