Fresh from the Garden, An Organic Guide to Growing Vegetables, Berries, and Herbs in Cold Climates won the prestigious gold medal award from the Garden Writers Association in 2018. One reviewer said, “I don’t think I have found any other book with such full and comprehensive information about every aspect of caring for an edible garden…” This encyclopedic guide includes both common and unusual edible plants with detailed nutritional and culinary advice on each. Fully illustrated with color photographs, it makes an ideal gift. Although one reviewer wrote that “this guide earns its place on the shelf of any northern gardener,” another noted that its overall advice applies to any climate.
