A portrait of one garden through the course of a year. In entries from her journal, prose and photographs, Martha charts her activities month by month, from ordering seeds in January to harvesting flowers in June, from painting fences in April to putting the garden to bed in November. The 600 photographs, all taken on the six acres around Martha's Westport home, capture the garden in all seasons and at all hours. Moreover, she identifies the 18 kinds of lettuce she plants, the best rhubarb for baking, explains how to make poppy-seed pasta with the seeds from her flowers, and provides 12 seasonal menus based on her own harvest. There are distinctive projects, too, such as how to paint cement urns to look like old copper, fasion Easter baskets, gild pumpkins and make flower arrangements, topiaries and Chinese wreaths.
