I had to have this cookbook. Had to. While I am currently a urban apartment dweller, my heart and soul are those of a gardener and a foodie. Some folks do fantasy football or create virtual farms on Facebook, but me, I read gardening and cookbooks like novels and create beautiful fantasies of the wondrous things I will grow and make someday. And this book will keep me in lovely dreams at least until the farmers markets start up and I can start to cook some of these tantalizing recipes.

Gardening can be a tricky thing. Between choosing what and when to plant, what type of soil you have, how much water, sun, fertilizer and space the seedlings need and how to deal with all those darned weeds, what should be a relaxing pastime can quickly turn into a neurotic episode. Of course, even if all the variables are in your favour, your garden harvest may fail horribly... or you may find yourself with more tomatoes and peppers than you know what to do with!

The extensive background and experience of this couple really shows in the first half of the Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook, which actually focuses on the Garden rather than food recipes- you can interpret it really as the first half being a Garden "Cook"book, and then the second half is the Table, with the promised 120 recipes and traditional cookbook.

I have been an urbanite whose gardening skills never have been explored more than growing a few of my favorite herbs of basil, dill, thyme,...more

I won this book and just received it today. I'm not sure how one goes about reading a cookbook so I scanned through it and am so excited to try some of the recipes. I'm generally not a cookbook sort of person and just have a couple of standards, of which this will become one.

The first 1/2 is all about gardening, setting up your beds, preparing the soil, what to plant when, etc. I am not a gardener for 2 main reasons. 1 - no time and 2 - mosquitos. If I was interested in starting to garden it wou...more

This is a must have for the first time gardener... Or for anyone who likes to cook what they grow. I found advice that lead to heavily ladened tomato plants by the first of June. As a first time gardener, I found the advice solid and it kept my plants alive and thriving. I can't wait to try out some of the recipes. Stuffed Squash Blossoms—Enough said.

Lots of good ideas for fixing your garden produce or ones you buy.

"The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook" by Barbara Damrosch and Eliot Coleman is a goodread's first reads giveaway that I thought was just going to be a vegetable cookbook, but turned out to be so much more. It tells you what, when, where and how to grow all sorts of vegetables and then how to turn them into delicious recipes (and not just vegetable recipes but appetizers, soups & salad, egg dishes, pasta dishes, meat dishes and even desserts). There are many colorful pictures to help alo...more

The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook

A nifty book that fits well with the shifting focus onto whole and organic foods. The author's describe how to create a garden, what to grow, how to harvest it, and then how to cook it in tasty and healthful dishes. The book is lavishly and beautifully illustrated. A must own for any gardener and those interested in cooking wholesome, organic foods for their families.
