I recently received a request from Peter S. Montgomery of Warren, Connecticut. Peter’s project is an important one – if you have some information that can help Peter in his efforts, please post it here. Thank you!
“Greetings from Warren, former home of Eric Sloane.
I am working on a project E.S. would have approved of: increasing public awareness of CT’s heirloom apples and saving those that can be found, then having scions cut and trees grafted. That said, I was reviewing 1955 first editions of his works and could not find a specific reference, but did find the sketch of the apple orchard tools on another site. Are you aware of any of his writings on farm life, cidering and orchard keeping which might be used in my efforts and, if so, what were his comments?”
