  • Ode to Chickahominy

    Winslow Tudor
    March 10, 2010

    Some chickens are real individuals. The most notable chicken Tasha ever knew was Chickahominy. His mother was a bearded Belgium bantam that started her clutch of eggs early in spring, and failed to hatch any save one, at which point she abandoned the effort. Rescued by Tasha from the cold, and thawed atop the double boiler on the woodstove, Chickahominy soon demonstrated his penchant for woodstoves, tea, gardening, scrambled eggs, traveling and people, especially Tasha.

  • Tasha as a Young Mother

    May 10, 2017

    In the late 1940’s, about the time when many American homes were being outfitted with the newest modern conveniences, Tasha Tudor moved to a run-down (one could say, dilapidated) 1789 New Hampshire farmhouse with no electricity, no running water, and no heat besides a few wood stoves. She was also a mother of two small children. While to some, this combination of circumstances might sound harrowing, for Tasha it was a dream realized.

  • Tasha Tudor's Garden

    Until this book was published in 1994, most people had only caught glimpses of Tasha Tudor's storied landscape. In this gorgeous book, two of Tasha's friends, gardener Tovah Martin and photographer Richard Brown, take us into Tasha's magical garden among her riotus blooms and even inside Corgi Cottage! As we revel in the vivacity of violas and cinnamon pinks, the intricacy of the formal peony garden, and the voluptuousness of the heirloom roses, we also learn Tasha's gardening secrets, season by season. 

    In 2020, several customers alerted us that they could no longer purchase this book in their local bookstores. Sure enough, this inspiring book is now out-of-print and we offer you the very last of the new copies. Priced accordingly. 

    160 pages.

  • Tasha Tudor-Style Half-Apron - Chamberlain Blue

    "Bring the bushel baskets!”

    You’ve gathered as many apples as your apron can carry, yet the boughs are bending with apples ready for picking. This morning your apron carried daffodil bulbs for the west garden, then gosling teenagers who needing rescuing from the corgis.  Wrap your apron ties round back, then tie them in the front.  That will keep your apron secure as you carry fresh eggs to the kitchen.  Smooth, sturdy cotton, a calico of some sort,  which hides all the small stains from kitchen and farm.

    Half apron starts at waist and lands somewhere around your knees (22" from waist the bottom of apron). Wide waist band (one inch wide), with extra long apron ties. Width from side to side is 22" and the ties extend 29" on EACH side.

    One size fits all.

    100% cotton antique reproduction fabric.
