Editorial Reviews

Review

"Just the monthly gardening calendar . . . is worth the price of the book. Highly recommended." -- Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Kim Stone, Horticultural Specialist

From the Author

"When some of my family needed to go to low salt, and low fat foods almost 2 decades ago, we quickly discovered that taking the typical salt and fats from customary cooking, resulted in no flavor!

I turned to edible herbs and flowers to put aroma and flavor back in my cooking and, going further, continued experimenting with gardening with plants that not only tasted great, but looked good in the garden.

Desert gardeners may think themselves limited to plants that may do well, but are highly toxic. Not so.

With edible landscaping you can have it all. Good Looks, Goods Scents, and Good Eats!" --Catherine, The Herb Lady, Crowley

More About the Author

I had been a long time gardener and cook, but then (in the early 80s) looked to edible herbs and edible flowers to give more flavor and variety to my cooking due to family health needs. This began a serious passion for growing as much of my own edibles as possible in a standard-size residential desert garden. I share my experiences through my blog, and a private internet newsletter.

During the "budding" part of my gardening experiences I was personally responsible for a lot of "green death," and from those lost friends, I learned a great deal and developed my personal gardening philosophy -- "enlightened neglect."

I have been a resident of the East Valley of Metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona for 30 years and counting.

I am constantly experimenting with growing and using new-to-me herbs and other edibles and I use these experiments to help others succeed.

I am the author of 2 books and numerous small writings, and a former contributing columnist for the East Valley Tribune. My classes and presentations on growing and cooking are regularly featured at local botanical gardens, private clubs, companies and organizations.

A new book project is underway.

Interests:

Reading: Anything about edible foods, herbs, and flowers, including recipes. I also enjoy 'cozy' mysteries.

Music: I enjoy most music, depending on mood and what I am doing.

Movies: I enjoy diversion movies -- Old time mysteries, movies from the 40s, comedies, and early TV and TV from the 60s-80s.

My gardens give me inspiration for cooking and creating.

I am a long-time animal lover and currently have 2 companion cats.

In the past I have enjoyed raising miniature goats and chickens. I have the opportunity to happily help a friend with hers.

This is a good book for someone just moving into the desert environment or someone who lives there and is beginning to get interested in edible landscope. Thoughtful and personal. A comfortable, non challenging introduction.

Those who are interested in food gardens that can be great for front yards may be more interested inThe Beautiful Food Garden: Creative Landscaping With Vegetables, Herbs, Fruits & Flowers. Those who need more reason to do it in the first place should read Food Not Lawns.Food Not Lawns: How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden And Your Neighborhood into a Community
