Two excellent primary sources for information on Jefferson's farming and gardening activities are the digital facsimiles of the manuscripts compiled by Jefferson throughout his life time, his Farm Book and his Garden book. These documents, owned by the Massachusetts Historical Society, have been transcribed and the entire contents are keyword searchable along with excellent quality digital facsimiles of the manuscript pages.
