Betty Howatt has spent half a century on her family's fruit farm in Prince Edward Island, within sight and sound of the Northumberland Strait. In this collection of stories, she shares her gardening lore, her memories of days gone by, and her prodigious knowledge of the flora and fauna around her. Betty Howatt observes her world with a keen, tender, and humorous eye. While hoeing in the garden, she watches eagles training their young to fly; while weighing produce in her farm market, she rescues a bat caught in a fly sticker; while tending a bed of lavender, she reflects on the long, fascinating history of the herbs in her garden.
Told with wisdom, humour, and a refreshing lack of sentimentality, these chronicles are both entertaining and informative, and give the reader a tantalizing glimpse into a fast-disappearing world of peace and beauty on a small family farm.
