"Scattered in among musings of local food systems, community action, family history, and current farm realities are clear moments of reflection that demonstrate Short's acumen as a writer."

"A Bushel's Worth is my favorite kind of nonfiction. Not only is it about many topics close to my heart—gardening, food, family—it is a beautifully told story, and a love story at that, centered around the love of a couple, their love for the land, and a community's love for a way of life. This book forever changed my perspective and awareness as I 'walk out' in my own garden."
—KATRINA KITTLE, author ofThe Blessings of the Animals
