A riveting memoir of an organic farmer
publication date: Apr 1, 2012
Atina and Martin
Diffley were early on the organic vegetable farming scene. Martin started Gardens of Eagan in the 1970s and when he met Atina, they began farming in earnest. They produced bountiful crops for the next 33 years, despite losing their first farm to development and then facing the threat of losing their second farm to a pipeline.
That’s the outline of Atina Diffley’s new book, Turn Here Sweet Corn, and even the bare bones of her history are remarkable. The great pleasure of this book, though, is the way she has filled in the details and created a real page-turner of a memoir.
