Great Gardening Books: Kitchen Gardens

July 26th, 2008

I’ve been reading as many books on kitchen gardening as I can get from the library. Some are good, some are bad, some have great photos, some have none.

Taylor’s Weekend Gardening Guide to Kitchen Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful and Functional Culinary Garden (Taylor’s Weekend Gardening Guides)is a great book. It’s small so it’s a quick read. There are a ton of great photos of real gardens, not perfect magazine gardens here, just real gardens with weeds & imperfect plants. It highlights a bunch of different kitchen gardens in different zones. This is a great book for photos of gardens that can be translated into your own garden. I found a sapling fence that might be in my garden next year.

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
