From the Publisher

The tradition of planting on Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year for trees, is handed down from generation to generation in this warm tale. Using a shovel “shiny and new,” a little boy and his grandpa plant a seed “with a green curlicue.” Like the tiny seed, this rhyming tale grows and blossoms into a celebration of nature and of family. The story culminates years later when the little boy, now a grandfather, plants a seed with a grandchild of his own. Included are ten great ways to enhance your Tu B’Shevat celebration.

However, the moisture in the soil would soon run out if the tree were to

There’s also, it turns out, a bit of one-upmanship among the farmers themselves. These good men and women are not immune to a little friendly competition in the form of degrees Brix, or sugar level, the criterion by which many fruits and vegetables are measured. Which is why you might have seen Rick Bishop of Mountain Sweet Berry Farm patrolling the market recently with his trusty Brix-testing refractometer.
