I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts.  If you have not done so yet, be sure and check out Abby’s posts which include some nice artwork.  Interesting findings on strawberries.

Jennie has found some interesting things about the difference and commonalities between gardens of the wealthy and the commoners.

And Aaron’s findings that the English didn’t really accept common New World plants like tomatoes is important.  I had assumed this would be one of the big differences between pre- and post-1492 gardens in England.

Check out Aaron’s and Maddy’s idea of building a wattle fence, and also Maddy’s pictures of grafted fruit trees.

Paula found that turnips were a common vegetable (which doesn’t surprise me).

One plant that surely belongs in the post-1492 garden is corn, as Eliza points out.
