  • 15 Herbs for Tea Booklet

    "Growing your own herbal teas can be just as therapeutic as drinking them. The tea garden is a sensory delight, producing colors, aromas, and flavors to enjoy throughout the seasons. The plants are easy to grow and you don't need a large area -- even a few small containers will do. By drying the tea herbs and then blending and packaging them in your own unique way, you can share the bounty of your garden with appreciative friends and family. 

    In this booklet, you'll find everything you need to know about growing and using tea herbs, from information on planting and maintaining your herb bed to how to harvest, dry, and blend the herbs. In case you don't have the time and energy to grow your own tea herbs, you'll find a list of sources for buying them in bulk. Best of all, you'll learn how to brew a delicious cup of tea!"

    "There's something so elemental about a good bread. And if it's a bread you've made yourself, you also feel a lovely sense of gratification. Here you'll find basic breads -- white, whole wheat, and so on -- and also some variations and specialty breads. But first, you'll find a description of the key ingredients used in breadmaking and a section on bread-making techniques. At the very end, you'll find a few sources for grains, flours, mills, and all sorts of other things that'll come in handy for the breadmaking cook."

  • Bathtime Print

    This image was originally published years ago as a Christmas Card and reprinted in the Jenny Wren Press era. This painting shows the warmth and tenderness of the Saturday night bathing ritual prior to the invention of indoor plumbing. Tasha's children remember this experience distinctly. They say one side of your body would be icy cold, while the side facing the fire would be too hot. Print 8 1/2"x11" Printed in the USA.

  • Blue Cupboard Print

    This classic and instantly recognizable Tasha Tudor print was drawn from scenes in Tasha's own home. The alternative title for this piece was "Cat in the Mixing Bowl", because, if you look closely, you'll see Minou (Tasha's beloved one eyed cat) hiding from the corgyn. We are particularly impressed with Granny's ability to capture the Oriental rug, as well as the worn, antique texture of her beautiful blue cupboard.

  • Building Chicken Coops Booklet

    "Chicken-coop designs are as varied as the people who keep chickens. The best design for you depends on how many chickens you keep, your purpose in keeping them, their breed, your geographic location, and how much money you want to spend. A handy way to get ideas is to find successful chicken keepers in your area -- or correspond with those who live in a similar climate -- and learn what works and what doesn't." 

    This Storey booklet has all of the information you need to design and build a variety of chicken coops while keeping in mind temperature controls, water sources, ventilation requirements, bedding, nest boxes, yards and free-range considerations.

  • Caring for Woodenware

    Natalie Wise
    July 18, 2011

    So many of the good things in life take some extra care. A garden, a special meal, tea time...they all take a bit of extra time and attention out of your day. But if you do them, and do them with a bit of extra love as well, you will be greatly rewarded. The same goes for woodenware--it is a workhorse in the kitchen, constantly at the ready to do battle with thick stews, or to carefully coax beaten egg whites into a batter. But if we take a bit of extra time to take extra care with the woodenware, it shines so beautifully! A well-oiled, well-seasoned wooden spoon feels so nice in the hand, and keeping your woodenware in prime condition will help it last for decades.

  • Chickens

    Winslow Tudor
    December 8, 2010

    Tasha was fond of chickens, especially the rare Spitzhauben breed. She said their combs did not freeze in winter, as they had a topknot to keep their head warm, and that they were especially intelligent. “The intelligence of small children and chickens is often underestimated,” she was fond of saying.

  • Chicks Peep and Hens Don't

    After publishing her first book Roosters Crow and Hens Don't in 2015, Ellie Tudor realized the general public needed even more information to fully understand chickens the way she does.  She developed this second volume, again, self-motiviated.  In this book, she shows us how hens take care of their chicks, where they sleep, what they eat, what they discuss, and so much more. A delightful and informative read for children and adults alike!

  • Eggs and Chickens Booklet

    "When was the last time you tasted a really fresh egg? One with a high yolk that was a deep, dark yellow, bordering on pink, and a white that stayed together in a plump circle instead of running all over the frying pan? If your answer is, 'I guess I never have,' you aren't alone. When author John Vivian and his wife first made their move from city to country, he says 'I really believed that the lighter colored the yolk, the fresher the egg. It wasn't until our pullets began laying that I learned the facts and that the yolk color is dependent on the pigments in the feed.' "

  • Ellie Tudor and Her Chickens

    March 14, 2017
    Tasha Tudor is known for her charming illustrations that depict the friendship and love between children and animals. Her watercolors of little boys and girls ambling through fields of flowers in the company of corgis, lambs, and chicks radiate innocence and the magic of a childhood spent living close to nature. 
     
    With rosy cheeks and bright eyes Ellie Tudor, the 7 year old great granddaughter of Tasha Tudor, looks like she walked right out of one of her great granny’s illustrations. Though Ellie was born after Tasha passed away, it is clear that her great granny’s spirit lives on in her, and in more ways than one.
