Great Gardening Books: Moosewood Restaurant Kitchen Garden

July 19th, 2008

I’ll have to admit, when I first got The Moosewood Restaurant Kitchen Garden: Creative Gardening For The Adventurous CookI was a bit disappointed. There are no photos, just drawings. One of my favorite things about gardening books are the photos. I get a lot of inspiration and ideas from photos in magazines and books.

Once I started reading, I was pleasantly surprised by the content of the book. This book goes in to great detail about each type of vegetable, listing specific kinds to try and includes great detail about the soil and moisture needs of each plant (it also specifies where to get each specific kind of plant). Since this book is written specifically for growing vegetables for cooking, it has cooking tips, which is a great addition since cooking is another one of my hobbies! Another great feature of this book is the resource section and the bibliography. I’m sure I’ll be spending some time looking through all the resources and reading few of the books listed in the bibliography. This book will be a great resource to refer to throughout the garden planning, planting, and harvesting season. I’m definitely putting it on my “Want to buy” wishlist!
