"The Beautiful Edible Garden combines aesthetic sensibility and literally down-to-earth pragmatism with insight and ingenuity. Who knew that a plot full of weeds and scrubby trees could so readily be transformed into a garden of earthly delights just a few steps away from the kitchen, and just a few more easy and thoughtful steps away from an arrangement for the dining room? Whether your yard is big or small, out back or in front, or limited to a few containers on a balcony, you can "pursue food production and beauty together" - Joanna Brichetto, Book Pages
"The Beautiful Edible Garden combines several different tactics for encouraging readers to create gardens they can quite literally eat ... My favorite (and clearly dog-eared) discovery were these persimmon trees.... Another tactic utilized by authors Bittner and Bennett is the introduction of gorgeous flower arrangements and displays by Studio Choo. Full of (you guessed it!) edible components, the arrangements are simply divine and inspired me to get outside, break out the clippers and get to arranging again." -- Amy Renea, A Nest for All Seasons
"A newly published book by authors who live in the San Francisco Bay Area reminded me that plenty of food-producing plants have beautiful, luxuriant foliage -- and flowers -- to contribute beauty. If you don't have room to plant and grow a real crop, then why not plant a border of leaf lettuces or curly parsley plants; place chard or mustard in the middle of an ornamental bed?" -- Dallas Morning News
"Now, the best advice from this design duo has been folded into a book that provides a good primer for making your vegetable garden as beautiful as it is productive. The Beautiful Edible Garden focuses on how to implement simple principles of basic garden design for success at both growing the food you want for your table and enjoying the aesthetic pleasures of bringing it there." -- Cheryl Koehler, Edible East Bay

I'll stay off my "NO Round-Up" soap box but urge all gardeners to educate themselves and pay attention to what we are using. That said, mix up the flowers and veggies. Why not!
