This is not the typical "how we left the city to find peace in the country" narrative, but the story of the evolution of Hedgehog Hill Farm from a weekend getaway for two Boston professionals to a full-time self-sustaining business. Silber describes the gradual changes from occasional farmers' market vegetable sales to commercial contracts, lectures, a mail-order business, and retail shop on the premises. A thoughtful, enjoyable book with a useful list of readings on gardening, herbs, and dried flowers. Recommended. Elizabeth K. Tom, formerly with Purdue Univ. Libs., West Lafayette, Ind.
