'Garden Wisdom' Book Talk in Fitchburg
Gardening has always been a group endeavor for the Apps family. In "Garden Wisdom: Lessons Learned from 60 Years of Gardening," readers will learn gardening basics along with author Jerry Apps' grandchildren as they become a new generation of gardeners. They'll devour Ruth's recipes for preparing and preserving fresh garden veggies — from refrigerator pickles to rutabaga pudding. And they'll savor son Steve's beautiful color photographs, capturing the bounty of the family garden throughout the growing season.
Jerry Apps will be joining the Fitchburg Garden Club to talk about 'Garden Wisdom'
on January 17.
Apps has been a rural historian and environmental writer for more than 40 years. He has published books on many rural topics, including "Every Farm Tells a Story," "Living a Country Year," "Horse-Drawn Days," "Barns of Wisconsin" and "Old Farm." He is a former county extension agent and professor at the University of Wisconsin College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and a lifelong vegetable gardener.
