I didn't know where to put this. It is history, gardeening/farming, and recipes all rolled into one. GREAT STUFF!! In my search for veg. varieties that my ancestors might have grown I contacted Texas A&M. The reply listed two sites that ya"ll have got to look at. http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/plantanswers/recipes/carvertomato.html and http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.du/plantanswers/recipes/sweetpotatoes.html These are bulletins written by Dr. Carver. They talk about growing, storing and using these crops.
