Overview


Whether your idea of gardening is a tomato plant on your fire escape or a pumpkin patch in the yard, Homegrown is the ultimate guide to growing your own food and eating it, too! With clear and uncomplicated illustrations, author Heather Hardison guides readers through the process of planting, growing, harvesting, and preparing more than 25 of the tastiest, easy-to-grow vegetables and small fruits—such as spinach, kale, artichokes, and pears—and cooking them into seasonal, clean, and delicious offerings—including Fava Bean Crostini, Tomato and Watermelon Gazpacho, and Parsnip Hummus. Using Homegrown’s tips for stocking your own unprocessed pantry, growing your own herbs, and pickling and canning the last of your bounty, anyone can learn to eat from the ground up. Part cookbook, part gardening guide, Homegrown is the perfect excuse to start a small container garden, cook a few seasonal dishes, and see where it takes you!

Editorial Reviews

illustrator and author of Meanwhile in San Francis Wendy MacNaughton

"Homegrown is such a gorgeous, comprehensive, and completely charming book. Heather's illustrations and lettering are as delicious as her recipes—even the novice gardener or chef (like me) will be inspired to plant, grow, cook and eat."
Ashley Christensen

"Heather Hardison’s Homegrown beautifully highlights the important relationship between garden and kitchen. The illustrations warmly convey each season's offerings and all of their potential. It takes me back to my childhood … my memories of participating in our family garden, and all of the delicious and meaningful meals that it yielded. To cook the things that we grow is a beautiful privilege that everyone should have the opportunity to experience, and this book opens the door to that opportunity."
author of Farm City Novella Carpenter

"Homegrown is a gorgeous delight of a book. Equal parts gardening tips, tasty recipes, and knock-out illustrations, it made me want to go whip up a batch of creme fraiche and plant some fava beans."
