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.
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 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.
already. The book is everything it says it is and works just like Mel Bartholomew says it will. If you want to garden, this is it. Even made the trellises and they are great. Perfection at it best.
I believe that Moms should use it and benefit from it, and children will learn both gardening and cooking the RIGHT way.

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. Read morePublished 23 months ago by colormebeth
