"The Melon" By Amy Goldman

Book cover for "The Melon"

Melons are among the world’s most important vegetable crops. The new book "The Melon" is produced by Amy Goldman in collaboration with celebrated photographer Victor Schrager over the course of nine years. "The Melon" follows "Melons for the Passionate Grower," published in 2002. In the intervening years, Goldman has grown as a gardener and has learned a lot more. She has taken advantage of recent research findings that informed her thinking on crop history and best cultural practices.

Amy Goldman is a gardener, author, artist, and well-known advocate for seed saving, plant breeding, and heirloom fruits and vegetables. Her mission is to celebrate and catalogue the magnificent diversity of standard, open-pollinated varieties, and to promote their conservation.

Amy Goldman will be at The Rhinebeck Farmers Market on Sunday, September 15 signing her book and discussing melon.
