I learned about this from Patricia Wells, who loves this book. I never saw the PBS show, but the book is indeed wonderful. Ahead of its time in terms of veg patch cooking; dated in parts but, on the whole, incredibly thorough and still very informative and relevant. Best recipes: Radish Top Soup, All the Squash recipes, Shinbone Soup.
