Tudor Hall PlantationA nineteenth-century kitchen garden of one acre, about the size of a football field, could be maintained by one person and provide produce for 10-15 people. The management of the kitchen garden generally fell to the women of the household. The planter's family members or slaves provided the labor necessary to maintain the garden. Pamplin Historical Park grows "heirloom" varieties of common mid-nineteenth century herbs and vegetables both for historical accuracy and to prevent these varieties from becoming extinct.
