Think of Grocery Gardening like a substitute gardening grandma. An extra hip, fun-loving grandma who shows you how to start an organic food garden but never gets mad at you for not wiping your muddy shoes. --Kate Bryant, Portland Monthly
It should come as no surprise that Grocery Gardening is as hip as a cookbook gets. (...) The book is witty and relevant, and like a good meal, leaves the reader sated. --Lynn Felici-Gallant, Coastal Home Magazine
Grocery Gardening includes garden planning, planting, preparing, preserving and nutritional information for each of the more than twenty selected edibles. In addition to tips on when to harvest home grown vegetables, the authors offer advice on how to select the freshest produce at the local market, and select complementary ingredients to combine with your home-grown edibles. Jean Ann Van Krevelen, together with her team of food and gardening experts and their community of readers, encourage gardeners and non-gardeners alike to plan meals based on what is in season. Whether you buy local or grow your own, the recipes will delight your family with seasonal freshness. Also included is a chapter on preserving your harvest, with tips for freezing, drying, canning and preserving.

What's really great though about the book is all the yummy recipes (most vegetarian or easily made vegetarian) that I can't wait to try! So once you've grown all those zucchini you have something to do with them. :)
The book also has advice on how to purchase the best produce from your local store or farmer's market (if you're not able to grow yourself) and store correctly. Includes a nice section on preserving food.
I highly recommend!
- Carrie Triffet,
author of Long Time No See: Diaries of an Unlikely Messenger
Seriously, I think this book is especially good for people who are new to gardening, and the authors' friendly manner encourages me to try new things in my little garden and in my kitchen.
But the highlight of this book? The introduction and it's entire concept. It's amazing to read how a group of women met over Twitter, liked eachother, thought of this brilliant idea, found a publisher who liked their idea as well, and quickly put together such an amazing book, soliciting help from everyone else on Twitter. It's a group project - edited by the professionals, of course - and the first of it's kind, I'm sure. Just lovely.
