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”

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.
