Format: Paperback
I have loved every minute of every Adelma Simmons book I have ever read. This lovely lady is the owner and operator of Caprilands Herb Farm in Connecticut, which is the subject of this book. She describes how the garden looks, smells, tastes and is cared for in the "five" seasons of a year--winter, spring, summer, fall and Christmas! Yes, at Caprilands Christmas is a major event. The book is packed with tips on gardening, using herbs and herbal folklore, all interspersed with personal anecdotes and humor. Check out all Adelma's books! They are all fascinating!

By A Customer on October 29, 1998
Format: Paperback
If you want just one book devoted to herbs, this is the one for you. Not only does Adelma describe the various herbs in her 50 gardens at Caprilands (it used to be a goat farm in the 1920's when she and her husband moved there), she tells some great stories related to the plants.
Adelma's lunches and lectures at Caprilands were legendary. This lady deserves more press. I have never met anyone like her. I had the opportunity to spend a few days with her about 20 years ago. I was amazed at how much she knew about herbs and life in general. I will bet that if you read this book, you will want to order all of Adelma's many books. They are all great reads.
