Food to Grow by Frankie Flowers
Nothing beats the taste and smell of a tomato freshly picked from your own garden.Â And thereâ€™s a certain pride in knowing that the salad you just servedâ€”fresh strawberries and allâ€”was harvested entirely from your backyard. But growing your own fruits, vegetables and herbs can be time-consuming and feel overwhelmingly complicated. Your eagerness to get growing in the spring can be rained out by seemingly endless seedlings and seed packs at your garden centre, all with cryptic planting instructions that leave you with withered plants rather than crunchy carrots. But it doesnâ€™t need to be that way! Frankie Flowers has decades of experience helping thumbs of all colours turn barren patches and empty pots into bountiful harvestsâ€”and he can help you do the same.
Food to Grow simplifies every growing decision youâ€™ll need to make. Frankie helps you evaluate your space, decide just how much time you want to invest and then make the smartest choices about which plants will give you the best bang for your buck. He guides you through the entire growing season from prepping and planning, to planting, weeding and harvesting (the best part!), and shares not just which veggies, fruits and herbs have become Frankieâ€™s Favourites, but which plants just arenâ€™t worth the effort.
Loaded with gorgeous photography that will have you desperate to get digging, Food to Grow includes a detailed A-Z index of over 50 of North America's most popular home crops. Whether you have space for a few pots or 40 acres out back, Frankie Flowers will help you make your dream of home-grown treats a fun and tasty reality.
