Foods of Spry’s Field

Just as early settlers ate local foods in season, we too can feed
ourselves from our own gardens, farmers’ markets, and local produce
in grocery stores. In this cookbook you will find lots of suggestions
of early and modern recipes, plus step-by-step directions for preserving
local fruits and vegetables.

Vegetable Planting Times

It’s easy to get caught up in the “plant- everything-in-one-weekend”
method of gardening. It’s more sensible, however, to make several
plantings of vegetables over several months. This pamphlet outlines ideal planting
times for a number of common vegetables to ensure the best results for your garden.

Growing Soft Fruits

It is wonderful to be able to pick your own fruits, whether for
fresh eating, baking, or preserving. Even tiny gardens can support
some fruits, and you will be able to enjoy varieties that are not
readily available in stores. This pamphlet will guide you through the process,
from planting and propagation to maintenance and harvesting.
