I've had a copy of this book for years. It's a great resource for the backyard gardener. You will never wonder what to do with the results of your efforts. So many wonderful tips for shopping for produce in the market and what to do with it-cooking, storage, preserving, etc., and so many excellent recipes, tried and true.
