Book Review: A Rich Spot of Earth


A Rich Spot of Earth:
Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden at Monticello

Peter J. Hatch

This is a lovely coffee table book.  It’s split into two sections – one telling the history of the Monticello gardens, and the second featuring vegetables that are found in it.   Being a gardener, I really enjoyed this glimpse into this marvelous garden of both past and present, and it inspired me to go pull the weeds in my own garden!  The pictures in the book are breathtaking, and reminded me of the awe I had when I visited Monticello in person.  4 of 5 stars.
