Top Customer Reviews
There are black and white line drawings of the plants and also some entertaining line drawings for illustrative purposes. Included is why Graham decided to grow a garden, the benefits of doing this and some of the best gardening information around, especially if you are a beginning gardener, but not too simple for a more experienced one either. Included is information on soil, raised beds, seed germination, transplanting, feeding, watering, composting, pests and diseases and the greenhouse. References and resources are listed with phone numbers and web sites .
This is an outstanding gardening book, it will inspire you to garden and cook what you grow.
Younger folk may not remember Kerr's television show with all the humor and fun (The Galloping Gourmet)but I do and learned a lot about cooking - Graham Kerr continues to make changes, make recipes even simpler yet very tasty, and, together with his wife Treena, are active in Christian and community service. He welcomes input thru his website. You won't be disappointed in this book if you like gardening and easy cooking, plus being a healthy active person.
Everything you can grow to eat is covered in this kind of detail... I am impressed. I loved his TV show - very knowledgeable and funny guy... he is almost 80 now, still cooking and now gardening. Nice clear line drawings.
The recipes that I have so far tried have been SO good that it inspired me to purchase his "Minimax" cookbook (which sounds as if it might be an appliance owner's manual but never fear, it is not, LOL) which I received today and plan to try out over the next few weeks.
I especially recommend the Cauliflower with Faux Cheese sauce. It will "convert" even the most stubborn cauliflower-hater (or cheese-sauce-hater for that matter!). That recipe alone is worth the price of the book IMHO.
