Overview

Even urban dwellers, with little more than a balcony or tiny backyard or windowsill, can grow their own food, thanks to Patti Moreno's groundbreaking gardening guide!

She supplies dozens of easy plans, plus a generous collection of simple, delicious recipes and menus that will make the most  of any garden's bounty. Moreno's colorful photographs, illustrations, and comprehensive instructions will encourage gardeners both new and experienced to embrace sustainable living with ease and enthusiasm.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a guide for yard-to-table foodies. Ms. Moreno, a creator of the Web site gardengirltv.com who lives in urban Roxbury, Mass., gives the basics for gardening in raised beds, containers and window boxes. She first lays out essential bits about water, compost and pestilence, then offers plans for an herb pesto garden, an Asian stir-fry garden, a vegan raw garden and more. Confident that her instructions will yield bounty, she also provides recipes, like baba ghanouj from a Mediterranean vegetable garden and sunflower-seed cake from a Native American garden. A frisky yet sensible tone pervades the book, from the author's dedication (to her family, “for eating all their veggies”) to the Mouth-watering Cilantro Lime Martini recipe at the end." —New York Times
