Thousands of animals and one or two giants, the gardeners, inhabit this miniature jungle. “War and Peace in the Vegetable Patch” gets close to ladybird, aphis, and field mouse to give a poetic, sometimes funny, but always rigorously scientific narrative of the interactions between the garden’s vegetables and the other plants, animals and humans there. Chemicals are banned from this organic plot which, year after year amazes with its vegetables, flowers…and all kinds of creatures.
