Gardening Products Review: Fresh from the Garden

By Pat Leuchtman
Gardening Products Review

Fresh from the Garden (John Whitman)This handsome book with extensive and informative photographs provides comprehensive lessons about growing edibles. It’s divided into two sections – a section providing detailed information about growing edibles organically and a section that includes thorough descriptions of a wide range edibles, including some you probably haven’t thought of eating before.

I highly recommend this book because it is accessible to the novice, useful to the experienced gardener, and covers a broad world of edible crops. In Fresh from the Garden I have found information and an invitation to try some of the more exotic edibles. Cloudberry sounds delicious – and hardy.
