For the Diary
If you happen to be in or near Whitewater, Wisconsin on the 25 January, you may like to drop by a meeting of the Whitewater Historical Society to be held at 301 N. Whitewater St. At 7pm that evening, historical gardener and author Marcia Carmichael will talk about her latest book, Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers.
The talk will looks at the gardening and cooking traditions of early Wisconsin immigrants, from heirloom plants to authentic ethnic recipes, such as Irish potato candy. Sounds a fascinating lecture and tome!
