Recipe from Grow Great Grub: Root Vegetable Fries
1 large carrot
1 large potato
1 large sweet potato
1 large beet
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper
Roasted potatoes are good and all, but a roasted root vegetable medley is just as easy to make and a little bit fancy, too. Substitute any root vegetable, including starchy potatoes, turnip, parsnip, celery root, or rutabaga. While the veggies are roasting, toss a garlic bulb or two into the pan at about the 30-minute mark--the result: easy, creamy garlic! Yum.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the vegetables into 1/2"-wide spears and toss in a roasting pan with olive oil and herbs to coat. Keep the peels on; that’s where the vitamins are.
2. Roast for approximately 40 minutes, turning regularly until all sides have turned a golden brown and the fries are cooked straight through.

From the moment I opened this fresh garden book, I was drawn in and found new information, luscious pictures, and (some) recipes that made me eager for this year's harvest. Gayla Trail's book seems perfect for the new gardener with just a windowsill or balcony, but she has plenty to offer the suburban gardener with years of experience - me.
I'm delighted that I picked this book to add to my gardening library. It's giving me plenty of ideas on compost, watering, new plants to try, and better ways to raise old favorites. And it's just a great read, too.
Past year's purchases have included:
