A few of my friends have collaborated on a new book, Grocery Gardening, just out from Cool Springs Press. I love the book’s clever name, evoking as it does a central reason why so many Americans are gardening again–to grow affordable food.
Hmmm… maybe the “grocery gardening” phrase will become as common as victory or kitchen garden? Time will tell.
The photos–like the cover shot at right–are gorgeous, the information is practical, and it’s all presented in a cheerful tone. Personally, I’d liked to have seen more of the authors’ colorful, distinctive personalities reflected in the text, but it’s a fun contribution to the gardening dialogue.
Congratulations to the authors!
UPDATE: Teresa O’Connor (a.k.a. the warm, witty and wise @seasonalwisdom and a member of the 2010 RW&G Registry) is one of the gardeners behind Grocery Gardening. Right now she’s got a giveaway going on at her blog. Want a shot at winning a free copy next weekend? Go check it out!
