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.
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.

Long one of Tasha Tudor's favorites, the original of this exquisite Madonna hangs in the parlor of her home. This image evokes the classical Madonna while making this mother and child uniquely her own. Her dramatic use of lighting conveys the universality of tenderness, love, and hope between each mother and child.

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."

"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.

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."
