Publisher Comments:

Jimmy Williams learned all about vegetable gardening at the knee of his grandmother, a South Carolina native from a traditional Gullah community whose members were descendents of Caribbean slaves. He pays homage to his family history in this inspiring step-by-step guide to designing and planting a backyard vegetable garden and growing one's own food. With this essential garden manual, home gardeners can learn how easy it is to plan a garden, design and construct growing beds, tend the crop without using harmful chemicals, harvest gorgeous vegetables, and cook a delicious feast using Jimmy's favorite family recipes.

He grows and sells heirloom tomatoes from seeds that have been passed down from his great-great-grandmother.

Susan Heeger is a long-time magazine and newspaper feature writer with a specialty in garden, design, home, lifestyle, and food stories. She lives in Los Angeles.

From Seed to Skillet is a lovely book with something to offer for every gardener from neophytes to experts. The lush, beautifully composed photographs are an immediate inspiration augmented by Williams' encouraging approach to gardening. Chapters are divided logically, covering the basics of growing food. Instructions are presented in a variety of different levels, with guides for both the DIY set and those wanting more immediate, less labor-intensive garden solutions. This book makes growing edibles accessible to everyone, but is especially appealing for those who, like Williams, work in Southern California soil.
