    Dear Friends,
     

    Winslow spent the end of summer and the beginning of fall adding new cedar shingles to his grandmother's house, a job that has taken him through summer's high ferns to autumn's bright foliage...and will continue for much longer as he makes his way around the whole house. 
  • Harbor Morning Print

    Tasha Tudor created this delightful image for the Basin Harbor Club Artist in Residence Program 2001. Harbor Morning shows six children and one corgi, playing and resting along the Vermont shores of Lake Champlain. This version has no text and measures 14 1/2" x 21". Printed in the USA.

  • Holiday Cake Enclosure Cards

    The children exclaim over the beautiful holiday cake while a corgi tries to sneak a lick (they're good at that.) Now in an enclosure card size for gift-giving. 5 cards/envelopes. Size: 2 3/4" x 1 1/2". Interior: blank. Printed in USA.

  • Hollyhocks

    August 31, 2012
    Beyond the grape arbor and to the south of the greenhouse resides Tasha’s hollyhock bank. Its proximity to the herb circle subtly unites it with the rest of the garden, but by late July when much of the color in the garden has faded it is the focal point, for the hollyhocks are in full bloom. Ranging from pure white to varying shades of pink and yellow, the hollyhocks are a wonderful presence, particularly very late in the afternoon when the sun sets beyond the field and for a moment casts its light across the entire garden.
  • Home for the Holidays Print

    A beautiful pastoral farm scene of two family members arriving home by sled. The dogs run out to greet them, as two people wait for them on the porch. You can find this picture on page 41 in Tasha's out-of-print book A Brighter Garden, published in 1990. Paper size 17 x 14, oval image. Printed in the USA.

  • Hope of Spring

    March 1, 2017
    Every year in the Northeast the return of spring feels nothing short of miraculous. The sight of tender purple crocuses pushing through white snow can set even the heaviest heart a-flutter. The vibrant green of new leaves delights the eye after months of the muted palette of winter. Birds newly returned from their migration back North fill the air with their lovely chatter and even a chilly wind carries with it the sweet scent of new life, full of hope. 
     
  • June Garden

    July 16, 2014

    A hot, humid, sunny, windless July day invariably brought an extra degree of happiness to Tasha, especially if she was gardening. By July the perfection of a June garden has mellowed into a green and pastel sprawl of perennials and annuals, some still in bloom but also preparing fruits and seeds.

  • Late-Spring Snow

    April 27, 2011

    The Easter eggs were hung on the willow tree with care, 
    In hopes that the Easter Bunny soon would be there....

  • Making Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Booklet

    From the introduction: "Ice cream and its various relatives, including ice milk, sherbet, sorbet, ice, and frozen yogurt, are America's favorite dessert -- likewise, more of these threats are consumed in this country than anywhere else in the world. Today, ice cream knows no social boundaries, but early in its recorded history, it was a food of royalty. 

    What made ice cream readily accessible, however, was the invention of the ice cream churn, complete with dasher, hand crank, two tubs, ice, and salt, by a woman named Nancy Johnson in 1846. By 1851 ice cream was produced commercially. Ice cream sodas became an American mainstay after the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1879. That ubiquitous treat, the ice cream cone, came on the scene in 1904 at the St. Louis Exposition."

  • Making Maple Syrup Booklet

    "This bulletin will tell you how to make syrup on the three simplest levels. The first level is for people who intend to tap only a couple of trees, to make only a couple quarts of syrup, and to spend no more than $20 on equipment. The second level is for people who may have a dozen trees to tap, who may make five or even ten gallons of syrup, and who will put $300-$450 into equipment. The third level is for people who want to be small commercial producers. If you're one of these, you will get the smallest size of a true evaporator, make anywhere from 60 to 200 taps, and produce from fifteen to fifty gallons of syrup each spring. And you will make an initial investment of at least $1750, unless you can buy used equipment from another small producer who is quitting." Note: These dollar figures, and all others in the book, apply to 1988-89.

  • Making the Best Apple Cider Booklet

    Tasha has pressed her own apple cider for many years. If the process interests you, this bulletin is full of insight for making yours the best! We receive many requests for information on "How To" live the Tasha Tudor lifestyle. Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletins offer practical, hands-on instructions designed to help you master dozens of country living skills quickly and easily.

    From the introduction "The heady fragrance of fresh sweet cider running from the press is a wonderful blend of mellow apples, the faintly acidic scent of fallen leaves, and the brisk taste of country air that has been cleared by early morning frost. The memories of family cider-pressing days stay with children for a lifetime, and through the cooperative work, the fine scents and flavors of the raw material, the instant, gratifying reward of labor in the torrent of delicious golden juice, and the row of filled jugs stored away with anticipation, cider makers enjoy the first-hand experience of self-sufficiency, cooperation, and the pleasure of work."
