History lessons from a colonial garden

Heirloom vegetables aren’t antiques in Wesley Greene’s garden — they’re the latest thing. Greene is a gardener at Colonial Williamsburg, and he cultivates precisely the vegetables that appeared on colonists’ tables in the 18th century. Cabbages, cucumbers and squash were luxury items that demanded careful husbandry, and although times have changed, the past is still present in Greene’s garden. He grows time-honored crops to perfection.
