Keeping an Italian tradition alive while it becomes newly mainstream
When I was growing up in Red Hook, our family garden was an integral part of our life. Practically everyone in the neighborhood had one.
It was pretty much the norm that if you were Italian, there was a garden of some sort in your backyard, side yard, front yard, or even on a piece of purchased property elsewhere. If there wasn’t a yard available, you might offer to do the gardening in another’s yard and split the produce.
