More About An Amish Garden by Laura Anne Lapp; Jeremy Hess
 
 
 
Overview
An Amish Garden: A Year in the Life of an Amish Garden takes you to six working Amish gardens, from January through December. Matchless photos show the garden asleep, the Amish women putting together their orders for seeds, the preparation of the soil, parents and children planting, the emerging plants, the lush harvest, the food being preserved. This close-up of a world seldom seen shows how the seasons and Amish life work rhythmically together. Laura Anne Lapp lives with her husband and three young sons in a tucked-away valley. Gardening is simply the highpoint of her year. Step apart and enter this pastoral world of hard work, sturdy families, the freshest of flowers and produce, all in harmony with the seasons."

Amish gardener Lapp offers an intimate journal of a year of gardening, cooking, family life, and friendships in the small, rural valley in Pennsylvania where she lives. She begins in January, with the study of catalogues. She chronicles the hope-filled days of spring planting with her sons, and long summer days follow, filled with tending plants, harvesting the vegetable garden’s bounty, and working in the garden as the last light fades. Gardeners will be amused by her familiar tales of the Sisyphean efforts required to water and weed, and to coax reluctant crops to grow. The gardener’s life is always one of hope, struggle, and resignation, but ultimately, satisfaction. Jeremy Hess’s photographs beautifully evoke the pleasures of the changing seasons, ripening crops, and sweet moments of family life, allowing readers to step into this world for a few moments. Color photographs. (May)
