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
