If you are new to gardening but are excited to start growing some of your own food, this book is a great place to start. Written in a warm, you-can-do-it tone, it is also filled with really good advice and is tailored for a small-scale space like a yard or patio. I love that the author has a point of view, like her commitment to raised beds—which make it easier on your back, produce incredibly reliable results, and give your garden structure no matter how unwieldly your plants may get. And even though I’m an experienced gardener, I found some great new ideas (like growing tomatoes on arched metal trellises) and plenty to love in Kitchen Garden Revival. Pick up a copy and get growing!
