I received an All New Square Foot Gardening Cookbook for Christmas.
This is NOT "just another cookbook".
It is packed with extra info like when to harvest, signs that it is ready, how to harvest and tips for storage.
The pages for Planting Schedule for Continuous Harvest Crops and Plant Spacing contain the extra help I need.
I am not a big fan of eggplant but I can see myself trying these recipies. I may find a new favorite veggie!
I think this "cookbook" will encourage more people to start a garden and take their harvest to the family table.

I usually pick up a few magazines and books to read while I am in Lowes to stave off the boredom while DH looks at everything hardware and power toolwise. Today I happened to pick up this book. I was intrigued as I had read the Square Foot Gardener book. I had never implemented anything in the book mind you, but it was still an enjoyable read. I figured that anyone who is that awesome a gardener must have some awesome fresh recipes. I was definitely not disappointed!

First of all, the book is beautiful. Nice large colorful pictures of not only the dishes, but also of the vegetables, herbs, etc. that are grown to make the dishes. The book is divided into sections for each vegetable with instructions on growing, pairing, etc, in the beginning, followed by a couple of recipes highlighting each vegetable. There is also a section and a few recipes for herbs. Some of the recipes are a variation of classics, but others are new inventions. The ingredients are easy to find so you won't have to search high and low for that one ingredient that makes the dish special. All the recipes looked and sounded yummy. They are also relatively health, using sour cream (you can substitute non-fat if you choose) and no butter. There was only one I thought wasn't the greatest because it uses 2 cans of cream soup. Soup being very high in salt.

I was so excited about this book that I almost bought it right then and there at $17.97, until I remembered amazon. So, I rushed home to order it right away. Thank you Mr. Bartholomew for a wonderful cookbook! I can't wait to get the book in and get cooking.

I vowed I'd never buy another cookbook, but after seeing this I had to have it. I was never sure when to pick the vegetables from my garden, but this "cookbook" tells me. Plus if I should get an overabundance of a certain crop, I have several ways to use it.

I had the privilege of meeting Mel Bartholomew when I went to a symposium to become a certified teacher of the Square Foot Gardening method. His Foundation (the Square Foot Gardening Foundation) is trying to wipe out world hunger.

This book would make a great gift for anyone who loves good food made from fresh ingredients.

After getting so much produce from trying the square foot gardening I figured I better find some new recipes. We tried the green bean salad and it was yummy. We're going to try the cucumber drink next. I also like the recipes to use when you have an over abundance of one crop. Thanks

First of all this book could not have been written by anybody but an engineer. The author, a retired engineer, debunks common gardening myths and provides a way to make garden practical instead of a chore and perhaps even fun. This is a how-to book that delivers and that is rare. Are you interested in being a successful gardener and doing it efficiently? Read this book and follow his method. It works.

I ordered this as a companion to All New Square Foot Gardening. The cookbook adds some fun and interesting facts to the gardening book. The recipes are delicious, easy to modify if needed and offer as inspiration to create original recipes using what is growing in your garden.

I really like the concepts Mel presents and I've used this book almost exclusively this summer. However, he's a little more hard core than I am. I don't have time to just wander through my garden several times a day, lovingly giving each plant a drink of sun warmed water as needed. Nope. I need info on the best way for normal folks to water. The trellising was not totally successful either. The webbing he suggests is no where to be found and the plants don't just magically race up the trellises. Only one place in town had the vermiculite he requires and it was $50 a bag! I bought it but boy, it was painful. I'd like a little more info on most appropriate mulches and fertilizers for those of us who cannot compost on a large scale. I'd also like more info on "friends and foes", plants that like or don't like to be planted near each other. I've done a lot of research on the subject but it's tedious and often conflicting info. His website is way out of date. Between this book and Pinterest, I think I've done okay this summer except not a single zucchini plant grew and I have no idea why not. Raised beds are the ONLY way to go for busy, working families. My grandkids have had a blast watching Nana's garden grow.
