Love this book. had to reverse things round a bit being from the Southern Hemisphere but loved the little projects.
I took this book out from the library, because my parents, hubby & I, have planted a vegetable garden for the first time, other than the odd tomato plant. I've been devouring the 'net for ideas, hints, tips, tricks, recipes, etc etc, along with stalking coworkers for any advice they can give us - and our garden is doing just great! I can't wait for a bigger & better garden next year!

so, with all that in mind, I've been requesting books from the library on the subject of vegetable gardeni
Tornio has compiled a nice little book of garden based projects. I think it's a great book for people who are already familiar with the basics of gardening and want creative ideas for crafts, plus simple recipes that kids can help with.

I love to garden, and I enjoy sharing my love of gardening with the next generation. This book gives a fun and creative reason to do so. Every month includes gardening tips, recipes, and projects for even the youngest horticulturist.

Bright colors and easy-to-follow design are what truly make this guide worthwhile. Complete with difficulty levels and lists of materials, this is a magnificent read for the entire family.

Gardening, crafts, and recipes all year long for the whole family! The chapters are divided by month. They plants in each month do not neccesarily grow in that month, but it offers a varity to enjoy - herbs, bulbs, animals, night, etc. The crafs are focused around recycled ideas with garden decor in mind. Great book for families who want to explore gardening.
skimming through this one to see if it's worth recommending. so far I'm digging it for all the child oriented gardening and craft projects. seems like it would keep kids busy, outdoors, and active in the summer months.
Excellent garden themed crafts and recipes to keep the whole family engaged in gardening year round.
