Here's another barn from a 1990s garden tour of New England. Last week I shared a huge barn/greenhouse/garden just outside Sturbridge, Massachuttes. This week we've moving on to Danielson, Connecticut for a look at Tovah Martin's "toy" farm. If you are a serious gardener, especially in the New England area, you may be familiar with the writings of horticulturalist and plants woman Tovah Martin. She has written many books on gardening, columns for gardening magazines and has a gardening blog. She also worked at two great gardening institutions: Logee's Nursery in Danielson and White Flower Farm in Leitchfield, CT. Their catalogs are my favorites for garden plants. On the day we visited Tovah's garden we walked up this graveled driveway. All around the yard and barn plants grew in wild abandon. This property was about seven acres and Tovah does all the work. She is a dedicated organic gardener.
Finally, as a special treat, Tovah demonstrated a large variety of floral arrangements--all loose and casual and made up from unexpected plants from her garden:
