Nicely written book with personal reminiscences of growing vegetables in Vermont over the last 30 years. Fantastic illustrations by Bobbi Angell. The book is arranged plant by plant, and includes both good growing advice, some recipes, and history and anecdotes. It is not a 'how-to' manual on how to grow plants, more a memoir on the pleasures of growing and eating your own garden-produced food. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374160317, Hardcover)

This is the third book we have written together, though separately we have written others . . . But to say ‘written separately’ makes no sense, for when two lives have been bent for so many years on one central enterprise—in this case, gardening—there really is no such thing as separately.”

With these words, the renowned garden designers Joe Eck and Wayne Winterrowd begin their entertaining, fascinating, and unexpectedly moving book about the life and garden they share. The book contains much sound information about the cultivation of plants and their value in the landscape, and invaluable advice about Eck and Winterrowd’s area of expertise: garden design. There are chapters about the various parts of their garden, and sections about particular plants—roses and lilacs, snowdrops and cyclamen—and vegetables. The authors also discuss the development of their garden over time, and the dark issue that weighs more and more on their minds: its eventual decline and demise. Our Life in Gardens is a deeply satisfying perspective on gardening, and on life.
