A joyful look at making a kitchen garden with some nice family stories and recipes. The best part is the practical discussion of starting plants from seed (which many garden books completely ignore, assuming you will buy from nurseries) and fitting your garden into small spaces. There are even plans for raised beds and discussions of small, useful composting. Joyful is really the best word for this book, though, it leaves you wanting to call the author up (well, the one who seems to be speaking the whole book through, not the woman also introduced at the beginning who doesn't appear again except by name) and let him know how your garden is doing. Lovely gift book.
