Gardening, cooking show

There is a show on PBS called A Taste of History which shows how cooking was done several hundred years ago. They cook with a lot of fresh vegetables over a hearth fire and go around New England looking at Historic landmarks. On one episode it showed how gardeners used cold frames and glass globes to extend the growing season throughout the winter. You might find it interesting. Episodes can be seen at http://www.atasteofhistory.com/index.html
There are also a few episodes on Youtube.

If you found that interesting then you might also find "Tales from the Green Valley" interesting.
It's about a group of archaelogists and social historians who live and work for a full year in a Welsh farm and Welsh long house with only the facilites they would have had in the time of James I.
The food looks to be good even if through the winter they use a lot of dried beans. the show is much more than just aobut cooking though as they also have to plough and plant wheat, kill and preserve a pig, thatch a cow sahd build a new privy and do lots of other farming and household chores as if they are going to continue living forever in this place:
