What a wonderful resource this book is! From planning your garden, fertilizing and preventing disease and pests, the author provides good instruction for the amateur gardener. Those with more experience will definitely enjoy the chapters devoted to particular types of vegetables, such as legumes, the cabbage family, fruits and herbs.

The author also includes dozens of savory recipes for cooking your garden’s produce. Lemony Broccoli Rabe sounded very appealing, as did the recipes for Strawberry Basil Ice Cream, Fennel Potato and Apple Gratin and Herbed Edamame Salad. In addition, the author also provides great tips on storing vegetables, so you can have a little taste of summer all year long.

Wonderful photographs by Jim Henkens supplement this delightful book, providing mouth watering appeal from garden to basket or cutting board, and finally to the table. This book is a great gift idea.
