"Robyn makes planting and growing your own food so dead-simple, friendly and unassuming that even this black-thumbed gardener is encouraged to think she "Can, Can, Can." With instructions for making DIY planters and irrigation, designs for upcycling old furniture into gardening stations, recipes for creating homemade organic plant sprays, charts listing dollars-and-cents breakdowns of homegrown versus store-bought produce, and page-by-page growing guides by fruit or vegetable, this book is literally worth its weight in gold—or, rather, golden beets. Not to mention the satisfaction and bragging rights." —Melissa Massello, founder/editor of Shoestring Magazine
"From seed starting to home canning and everything in-between Homesweet Homegrown by Robyn Jasko is the perfect guide for new gardeners who want to grow and eat everything from their own gardens. Plus, it's great for seasoned green thumbs in search of a handy reference that covers a myriad of topics!" —Jere & Emilee Gettle, Founders of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company
"Homesweet Homegrown is an extremely helpful handbook that reads like a primer of lessons learned from garden-tending grandparents—insightful, informative, and maybe most importantly, honest. (Not to mention, just reading the recipes toward the back of the book made my mouth water in anticipation of the upcoming harvest.) With this by your side and a bit of good weather, you’ll be enjoying the fruits of your labor soon enough." —Alexa Fornoff, Assistant Editor, Readymade Magazine

"Put veggies in a large mixing bowl, add a tablespoon of salt and start kneading and start breaking it up with your hands."
Really? I feel sorry for the person who has never done this before who is sitting there kneading their green beans or pickles.
I feel like the author didn't care much about this book when she was writing it and just slammed a few things together. Things she may not actually do herself or possibly found on the internet.
If you want to learn how to grow vegetables from asparagus, tomatoes, pumpkins and beets this is the book! There is also a section on how to can, ferment, freeze and cook the things you will potentially be growing.
Great gift or "how-to" book
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go make a straw bed garden and get some kim chi fermenting.
