Harvest of Freedom: The History of Kitchen Gardens in America

Peter Henderson and Company New York, NY, 1888

After almost 20 years as a successful market gardener, Peter Henderson established a seed business in New York City in 1865. A canny businessman, he offered three kitchen garden packages: the city seed collection for $1, the suburban for $2.50 and the country collection for $5. Clearly the happy harvester pictured on the back of this catalog purchased the latter collection.
