a gift from my mom


My mother gave me an old copy of The Oxford Book of Food Plants, published in 1969. (She found it at a library book sale for $1.) I love the old drawings of vegetables. The ones above are the squashes. They look like the Delicata that I just collected seeds from.

What a great gift, one that shows how caring your mother is and how she knows your passions! The drawings *are* beautiful.
