Fall 1997 issue of Country Gardens Magazine. Renee says: “It’s summer’s
grand finale, and your kitchen counter is overflowing with fresh-picked
produce. What can you do? Try this (these) new way(s) to savor your
garden’s bounty.” Renee Shepherd founded Shepherd’s Garden Seeds, although
she is no longer affiliated with that concern.
