Books in Brief: The Beautiful Edible Garden by Leslie Bennett and Stefani Bittner
November 29, 2013
There are lots of reasons to want to grow some of your own food and just as many reasons to not want to turn your yard or balcony into a full-on family farm. The Beautiful Edible Garden shows you how to strike a lovely and livable balance, whether you're a novice gardener like me or a more experienced grower in search of a fresh approach. It's both inspiring and realistic, and it reads kind of like hanging out with a friend you admire. Although gardening season may seem far away if you live in a chilly climate, this is the perfect time to start dreaming and scheming for the spring. This book would make a great holiday gift, too.
