The Orta Review:
An excellent, detailed guide to growing your own veggies, herbs and flowers in a productive kitchen garden. All the basics are here for novices, but experienced gardeners are likely to find the depth and inspiration they need for a reference book that's worth holding onto.
From the publisher:
Grow What You Loveis no ordinary book about gardening. It’s an adventure into a life worth living, filled with food, flowers, and fun — and it starts withgrowing what you love, of course!
Emily Murphy outlines a simple method for growing a dozen seasonal ingredients that will change the way you cook and live. The book starts with an exploration of how best to choose the plants and recipes you love, and follows simple methods for garden-to-table growing and seasonal approaches to cooking.
How is it that store bought jam never tastes as good as homemade? Why is cutting into a tomato, still warm from the sun, a cause for celebration? Growing some of your own ingredients shifts the way you think about cooking because now the story of the things you eat — at least some of it — is your story too.
The method inGrow What You Lovebegins by gardening with purpose and brings with it unexpected benefits. Fill window boxes with basil in place of flowers and watch them grow from seed. Plant ‘Sun Gold’ and ‘Black Krim’ tomatoes outside your kitchen door. Tend them a little each day, water them when the soil is dry and be there to fend off pests. Some will thrive while others may not, but this too is part of the process. Soon the moments allotted to check on your garden become the time of day you look forward to most, it’s not something you have to do but becomes something you enjoy doing. Discover that the benefits of growing even the smallest of gardens ranges from the simple to the sublime and, as your garden changes, so do you.
