Homegrown Harvest is filled with beautiful color photos. It will inspire you to tear up the lawn in your backyard and plant a garden. It features a large array of vegetables and fruits from the common to the exotic. The description of espalier fruit trees is particulary neat.
The book is divided into four parts: spring, summer, fall, and winter, and each season is then subdivided into early, mid, and late. There are handy reference charts at the back as well as a glossary and an index.
Homegrown Harvest provides a lot of pointers and a lot of instructions, but previous gardening experience is assumed, and nothing is super in depth, so if you're a total neophyte kitchen gardener like me who has difficulty growing mint, this is not the book for you.
