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

4.5 stars - This is a wonderful resource for families who are looking to garden together. Even if parents are unsure about their green thumb qualifications and whether they have the space necessary to make it work, never fear. Tornio offers great ideas for small and large spaces, including growing flowers and vegetables indoors, and rates projects by level of difficulty. Divided up by month, Tornio outlines growing opportunities, as well as craft and recipe projects highlighting nature that shin ...more

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. If you are a beginning green thumb, I would suggest finding a book to describe exactly how to plant/hardiness zones, etc. My one complaint about the book is that Tornio does not include a hardiness map, but lists all the zones with the plants (which I suppose is ...more

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.

I love the combination of plant information, garden crafts, and recipe ideas. This book offers many practical tips for avoiding common beginner's mistakes in a home garden. My favorite features were the themed garden ideas, especially the concept of a salsa garden that has tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc. I checked this out from the library but am considering purchasing a copy of my own.

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.
