The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

Roman Farm Management - Marcus Porcius Cato - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Roman Farm Management:

Old Marcus Cato had a farm...

My favorite Marcus Porcius Cato quote from the book:

"Remember that while work may stop, expenses still go on."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Can we learn from the past?

Do you garden?

My review of Roman Farm Management:

I learned that Roman farms were well staffed and enslaved.

I learned that the basics of horticulture haven't changed much.

I learned I should plant lupines with corn.
