Eat Your Yard!
Edible trees, shrubs, vines, herbs and flowers for your landscape
Eat Your Yard! proves that you can have your beautiful landscape and eat it too! Sure, vegetables are nice, but you don’t have to rip up your front lawn and plant scraggly squash in order to have a food-producing garden. Eat Your Yard! proposes a new way to use the garden more efficiently than ever. Edible fruit trees, shrubs, vines, herbs, and flowers provide beautiful blossoms, foliage, and structure, while also offering fruits, nuts, herbs, and seeds that you can eat fresh or preserve for year-round enjoyment. Author Nan K. Chase gives firsthand information and advice for growing 35 plants that offer the best landscape features and culinary use. Recipes ranging from savory cherry sauce to pickled grape leaves to mint wine to grilled yucca demonstrate the infinite culinary possibilities your yard can offer.
Nan K. Chase writes about architecture and landscape design from her home in western North Carolina. She is the co-author of Bark House Style and author of Asheville: A History. Her work has also appeared in the New York Times, Smithsonian, Fine Gardening, Architectural Record, and Southern Living. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina, where she is a contributing editor of WNC Magazine.

This book also has a wonderful sounding recipe for pear chutney which is wonderful for me as I have an influx of pears in the fall and found out I'm not that crazy about pears and don't know what to do with them all besides giving them away. Pear chutney will make great little remembrances at Christmas time when I want to give a "little" gift but buying something seems like too much. And, I found out from this book that pears need to be picked before they are fully ripe to be ripened in the refrigerator. I've just loved this book -- to me it's like a little bit of heaven. The recipes are unusual and the pages of the book are so pretty -- the only problem is that it makes me want a bigger property so I could plant more!
The pictures in the book show the beauty, even if you aren't familiar with the plant already; and the recipes tell you one way it can be eaten.
The text is entertaining, informative, and succinct.
My favorite bit of information is that pawpaws belong to the mango family. I've heard of pawpaws all my life but only just found out how exotic they are.
Thanks, Nan, for a great book!
