Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Typically, vegetable gardening is about the long view: peas sown in spring aren't harvested until summer, and tomatoes started indoors in February can't be eaten until July. But it's not true for all plants. Some things can be planted and eaten in weeks, days, even hours.

The Speedy Vegetable Garden

Review:

"One of the pleasures of being a home gardener is the taste of freshly picked food that goes from garden to table in minutes. Farmer Diacono and journalist Leendertz's first book is a colorful, mouth-watering guide to (almost) instant gratification in the garden. They've compiled a list of dozens of vegetables and edible flowers that can be reaped almost as quickly as they are sown. One can easily imagine a child being charmed by the magic of sprouting mung beans and a gourmand savoring the delicate flavors of soaked radish seeds or tender coriander and fennel microgreens. With each crop, the authors have included cultivation advice and clear how-to photographs alongside simple recipes that bring out the best in these speedy crops. Thus in one entry a reader can learn not only how to cultivate zucchini but also how to harvest the flowers and serve them tempura-style. For those looking for something new in the kitchen and the garden, this is an attractive guide. 250 color photos." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
