Thomas Jefferson's vegitable garden in Virginia

The vegitable garden at Monticello's platform, enlarged by Jefferson in 1808, is 1,000 feet long and 80 feet wide, and contains about 2 acres. In it, our third president had planted about 330 plants, but apparently not enough herbs to his liking as he would write: "[my] garden is so bare of kitchen herbs, as to have but a single plant of sage, & that stripped of all its leaves."
