Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0755210158, Paperback)Providing an all-encompassing information source for the kitchen gardener by bridging the gap between gardening and recipe books, this book has everything you need to know to grow, protect, harvest, cook and preserve fruit, vegetables and herbs. Based on the author's own experience, everything has been thoroughly tried and tested. Suitable for anyone interested in growing and using their own food, from the complete novice to the old hand, whether you have a window box, a small garden or a large allotment. As we become increasingly concerned about the quality, origin and chemical contamination of the food we eat, kitchen gardening is literally a growing field. Do you just want a few fresh herbs and vegetables, or you want to go all the way to a self-sufficient Good Life? This book will show you how to plant it, nurture it, when to harvest it, and what to do to turn it into a year-round supply of delicious, nutritious, wholesome food. In month by month chapters, this book straightforwardly guides you through everything you need to do each month, in a gardening and cooking year. Dealing with both the practicalities of the gardening required to grow the food, and everything you need to know about collecting, cooking and preserving your harvest, this book helps you enjoy the positive benefits of the process whilst also warning of pitfalls and problems to avoid. Every chapter is full of mouth-watering seasonal recipes for the produce that you harvest that month from your own plot, helping you to get the maximum benefit from your very own home-grown, home-cooked and preserved food. Go on, give it a try, anyone can do it. There's no beating that inner glow of satisfaction from knowing exactly where it came from, what is in it, and that your family's food is home-grown and home-made by you - yes you!
