Overview

Barbara Damrosch and Eliot Coleman are America’s foremost organic gardeners—and authorities. Barbara is the author of The Garden Primer, and Eliot wrote the bible for organic gardening, The New Organic Grower. Today they are the face of the locavore movement, working through their extraordinary Four Season Farm in Maine. And now they’ve written the book on how to grow what you eat, and cook what you grow.



The Four Season Farm Gardener’s Cookbook is two books in one. It’s a complete four-season cookbook with 120 recipes from Barbara, a master cook as well as master gardener, who shows how to maximize the fruits—and vegetables—of your labors, from Stuffed Squash Blossom Fritters to Red Thai Curry with Fall Vegetables to Hazelnut Torte with Summer Berries.



And it’s a step-by-step garden guide that works no matter how big or small your plot, with easy-to-follow instructions and plans for different gardens. It covers size of the garden, nourishing the soil, planning ahead, and the importance of rotating crops—yes, even in your backyard. And, at the core, individual instructions on the crops, from the hardy and healthful cabbage family to fourteen essential culinary herbs.



Eating doesn’t get any more local than your own backyard.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 09/15/2013
Organic gardening experts Damrosch (The Garden Primer) and Coleman (The New Organic Grower) operate Four Season Farm in Harborside, ME (fourseasonfarm.com). In this book's two sections (The Garden, The Kitchen), they deftly explain how to grow and prepare garden-fresh produce, covering topics such as soil preparation, crop selection, sowing, irrigation, and seed storage. Tasty seasonal recipes such as custard-stuffed baked tomatoes, roasted fennel with apricots, and chilled raspberry pie list variations and practical tips. The authors also include illustrations, charts, step-by-step photographs, and a resources section that addresses, for example, seeds, plants, books, and organizations. VERDICT Highly recommended for DIY-inclined readers who are interested in growing their own food.

    Great Combination of Garden and Cooking Info

    Within a few days of receiving the book I was able to use both gardening advice and some excellent recipes. It's a great concept and I look forward to preparing more recipes and trying to grow some veggies year round. I only wish I had the space and time to create a garden as complete as those in the book.
