Summary
From his small farm high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains, the award-winning author of Mayordomo explores the vivid mysteries of earth, wind, water, seed, bulb, and stalk. Autumn tillings, parakeet-blue winter days, and rich, hectic weeks in summer when garlic, basil, flowers, and vegetables are harvested for markets in Taos and Santa Fe--each season transforms both the landscape and the remarkable plant, top-setting garlic, that has become Stanley Crawford's passion
