Vegetable Garden in Connecticut

This was in the ’80s, when I was visiting my friend John Welles at his compound in West Cornwall, Connecticut. One night, for dinner, we went to a neighbor’s homestead, where John had a free pass to the garden. We picked some corn, chard, peas and beans for dinner.

About Lloyd Kahn

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.

Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

    Not sure. Might be distortion of wide-angle lens.
