Praise for Gardening the Amana Way
"Rettig has succeeded in the challenging task of providing a most interesting garden book that also provides insights into the interrelationships between garden and kitchen in one of our longest-lived communal societies. An intriguing blend of nature and culture with an insider's perspective, Gardening the Amana Way is a blend of plant list, gardener's almanac, and sustainability guide. It is as thoughtfully woven together as a traditional Amana blanket. The Gardebaas (garden boss) and the Kichebaas (kitchen boss) would be proud!"—J. Timothy Keller, Iowa State University
