In 2-3 Tagen bei dir zu Hause
In this book, I have gardening tips, recipes, and beautiful full-color pencil drawings of each vegetable. I explore the secret history of forty-eight well known and rare vegetables, examining their symbolism, astrological connections, healing properties, and overall character – a book for farm-to-fork aficionados and gardeners with an esoteric bent.
I offer here an understanding of the theory of biodynamic gardening and useful tips on light and warmth, ground covers, composts, crop rotation and weeds. Woven in with folk tales and stories from history, each entry also includes delicious historical recipes for each vegetable. A fascinating introduction to vegetable gardening and cooking, A Curious History of Vegetables sets horticulture in its historical, cultural, and cosmological contexts.
“Discover how nearly fifty vegetable, herb, and flower plants ‘dance with humanity’—and about wild gardens, nourishment as medicine, truly tasty simple gourmet recipes, the history and lore of plants over time, plus special garden tips. Be nourished with the skills and observations of Dr. Wolf Storl, a living library, a master farmer and gardener.”
