By STEFANI BITTNER and ALETHEA HARAMPOLIS
A beautifully photographed, gift-worthy guide to growing, harvesting, and utilizing 47 unexpected garden plants to make organic pantry staples, fragrances, floral arrangements, beverages, cocktails, beauty products, bridal gifts, and more.
Every garden–not just vegetable plots–can produce a bountiful harvest! This practical, inspirational, and seasonal guide will help make any garden more productive and enjoyable with a variety of projects using unexpected and often common garden plants, some of which may already be growing in your backyard.
Discover the surprising usefulness of petals and leaves, roots, seeds, and fruit: turn tumeric root into a natural dye and calamintha into lip balm. Make anise hyssop into a refreshing iced tea and turn apricots into a facial mask. Crabapple branches can be used to create stunning floral arrangements, oregano flowers to infuse vinegar, and edible chrysanthemum to liven up a salad. With the remarkable, multi-purpose plants in Harvest, there is always something for gardeners to harvest from one growing season to the next.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- The book is fantastic and filled with a great amount knowledge that anyone, especially a gardener can benefit from. Each of the author's choice of vegetable or flowers has special information a neat recipe included. My family is starting a vegetable garden this year and I am hoping to learn as much as I can about the process and what to plant. I am actually hoping to grow enough to help my community as well, so books like this really help.
