* The Kitchen Garden at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello (My dream garden)
I've always been inspired by the kitchen garden at Monticello. Over a long career, Thomas Jefferson directed the cultivation of one of the grandest vegetable gardens in the world — a two-acre, 1,000-foot-long plateau below his Palladian palace, Monticello, in Virginia.

" I have lived temperately, eating little animal food, and that ... as a condiment for the vegetables, which constitute my principle diet." - Jefferson to Vine Utley, 1819. image and quote from the The Gardens of Monticello by Peter J.
