Staff Reviews


This beautiful book vastly expanded my repertoire of what I can do with plants from my garden. From Salt-Preserved Herbs to Calendula-Infused Essential Oil, from Lemon Bee Balm Tea to Gardener’s Salve, there are projects for mind, body, and soul. “Harvest tempts me with all the goodness that I can create from even the most common plants. The projects are fresh and unfussy [and] each is infused with love.” —Johanna Silver, Garden Editor of Sunset magazine

Every garden--not just vegetable plots--can produce a bountiful harvest This practical, inspirational, and seasonal guide will help make any garden more productive and enjoyable with a variety of projects using unexpected and often common garden plants, some of which may already be growing in your backyard.

Discover the surprising usefulness of petals and leaves, roots, seeds, and fruit: turn tumeric root into a natural dye and calamintha into lip balm. Make anise hyssop into a refreshing iced tea and turn apricots into a facial mask. Crabapple branches can be used to create stunning floral arrangements, oregano flowers to infuse vinegar, and edible chrysanthemum to liven up a salad.
