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.
