A fascinating introduction to vegetable gardening and cooking, this wonderfully wild book sets horticulture in its historical, cultural, and cosmological contexts. The author-an ethnobotanist who has written dozens of books on herbalism, alternative medicine, and shamanism-offers a deep 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.

Featuring gardening tips, recipes, and beautiful full-color pencil drawings of each vegetable, this book for farm-to-fork aficionados and gardeners with an esoteric bent explores the secret history of 48 well known and rare vegetables, examining their symbolism, astrological connections, healing properties, and overall character.
