I bought Joe and Wayne's book, A Year at North Hill, in 1999 just after we finished building our former house and I embarked on my first Vermont garden. It is a beautiful story and excellent resource for New England gardeners. Their recently released, co-authored book, To Eat: A Country Life, is a wonderful primer on living well. For information on visiting the garden, workshops and events at North Hill, see the website here.

A Vermont Garden
Being busy with work has kept us close to home this summer. In years past the last six weeks would have been spent at our cottage in Rhode Island, and while change always requires a degree of adjustment, I have not missed our old routine. Instead, I have never felt more industrious and creative. Most weekends we have diverted ourselves with exploring our home state. Following are photos from a recent visit to North Hill, the home and garden of renowned horticulturalists and authors Joe Eck and the late Wayne Winterrowd. It is a true Vermont garden - experiential and productive - its paths encourage exploring the wooded acreage and an abundance of food is raised here.
