Book Review: Tasha Tudor’s Garden

Image“Tasha never wastes a leaf: The spoils are fed to the hens. And that, in a nutshell is Tasha’s philosophy of life. Not a moment, not an action, not a leaf is ever wasted.”

I love Tasha’s way of thinking, and her way of life in general. This book was nothing but inspiring, full of beautiful photography of her lush gardens, photographed by Richard W. Brown, and Tasha’s personal anecdotes, written and told by Tovah Martin.

One of my favorites was that Tasha doesn’t shovel her walkways during the winter, and instead prefers to put on her snowshoes and trudge on through with her corgi dogs! She finds it to be a waste of time and energy. Besides, a woman of her advanced years doesn’t need to be snow shoveling anyways…

Tasha shares some of her secrets to keeping such beautiful gardens, including her concoction of manure tea, which she uses to feed her plants. Clearly, her concoction works, as the photography shows. I plan to follow her advice.

Not only a lovely book to showcase on your coffee table, but full of beautiful images to admire. I gave this book 5/5 stars!
