Alice Waters, "Chez Panisse Vegetables"
English | ISBN: 0060171472 | 1996 | EPUB | 368 pages | 9 MB

Chez Panisse Vegetables
For twenty-five years, Alice Waters and her friends at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California have dedicated themselves to the ideal of serving the finest, freshest foods with simplicity and style. From tender baby asparagus in early spring, to the colorful spectrum of peppers at the height of summer; crisp, leafy chicories in autumn, to sweet butternut squash in the dark of winter, much of the inspiration about what to put on the menu comes from the high quality produce Waters and her chefs seek out year-round.

Using the treasures from the earth, Chez Panisse Vegetables offers endless possibilities for any occasion. Try Grilled Radicchio Risotto with Balsamic Vinegar at your next dinner party, or Pizza with Red and Yellow Peppers for a summer evening at home. Why not forgo green-leaf lettuce, and opt for Artichoke and Grapefruit Salad drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil? Or serve Corn Cakes with fresh berries for breakfast instead of cereal?

Throughout Vegetables, Waters shares her energy and enthusiasm for what she describes as "living foods." When she first began in the restaurant business, the selection of good-quality vegetables was so limited that she found herself searching out farmers with whom she might do business. Luckily, today's explosion of markets and organic farms across the country ensures that any home cook can find freshly harvested produce to put on the table. And with the increased popularity of home gardening, more and more people are taking their vegetables straight from the earth and into the kitchen.

Cooks, gardeners, vegetarians and everyone who appreciates good food will find Chez Panisse Vegetables to be not only a cookbook, but a valuable resource for selecting and serving fine produce. From popular vegetables like corn, tomatoes and carrots, to more unusual selections like chard, amaranth greens and sorrel, Vegetables offers detailed information about the seasonal availability, proper look, flavor and preparation of each selection. Arranged alphabetically by vegetable, and filled with colorful linocut images, Chez Panisse Vegetables makes it easy for a cook to find a tempting recipe for whatever he or she has brought home from the market.

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening: Cultivating Tomatoes, Greens, Peas, Beans, Squash, Joy and Serenity

FREEDownload : The Tao of Vegetable Gardening: Cultivating Tomatoes, Greens, Peas, Beans, Squash, Joy and Serenity

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening: Cultivating Tomatoes, Greens, Peas, Beans, Squash, Joy and Serenity by Carol Deppe
English | Jan 26, 2015 | ISBN: 1603584870 | 288 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW/PDF (Converted) | 19 MB
The Tao of Vegetable Gardening explores the practical methods as well as the deeper essence of gardening. In her latest book, groundbreaking garden writer Carol Deppe (The Resilient Gardener, Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties) focuses on some of the most popular home garden vegetables-tomatoes, green beans, peas, and leafy greens-and through them illustrates the key principles and practices that gardeners need to know to successfully plant and grow just about any food crop.

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening: Cultivating Tomatoes, Greens, Peas, Beans, Squash, Joy and Serenity
Deppe's work has long been inspired and informed by the philosophy and wisdom of Tao Te Ching, the 2,500-year-old work attributed to Chinese sage Lao Tzu and the most translated book in the world after the Bible. The Tao of Vegetable Gardening is organized into chapters that echo fundamental Taoist concepts: Balance, Flexibility, Honoring the Essential Nature (your own and that of your plants), Effortless Effort, Non-Doing, and even Non-Knowing. Yet the book also offers a wealth of specific and valuable garden advice on topics as diverse as:

* The Eat-All Greens Garden, a labor- and space-efficient way to provide all the greens a family can eat, freeze, and dry-all on a tiny piece of land suitable for small-scale and urban gardeners.

* The growing problem of late blight and the future of heirloom tomatoes-and what gardeners can do to avoid problems, and even create new resistant varieties.

* Establishing a Do-It-Yourself Seed Bank, including information on preparing seeds for long-term storage and how to "dehybridize" hybrids.

* Twenty-four good places to not plant a tree, and thirty-seven good reasons for not planting various vegetables.

Designed for gardeners of all levels, from beginners to experienced growers, The Tao of Vegetable Gardening provides a unique frame of reference: a window to the world of nature, in the garden and in ourselves.

Fast, Fresh Garden Edibles Quick Crops for Small Spaces

Fast, Fresh Garden Edibles: Quick Crops for Small Spaces
Publisher: Creative Homeowner; First edition (December 21, 2010)
Language: English | ISBN-10: 1580115128 – ISBN-13: 978-1580115124 | Paperback: 176 pages | PDF | 109 MB
Fast, Fresh Garden Edibles solves two problems for many home gardeners. It shows gardeners without gardens how to grow vegetables in the smallest of spaces, including turning a small mostly paved courtyard or patio into a bountiful garden and how to make use of window boxes, containers, and hanging baskets to produce healthful and tasty fresh vegetables. And for those who want results without waiting all summer to start harvesting, Fast, Fresh Garden Edibles provides planting and growing techniques that help produce vegetables quickly. In addition, the book focuses on those vegetables and vegetables varieties that are known for short growing seasons.

Fast, Fresh Garden Edibles Quick Crops for Small Spaces
Author Jane Courtier is an experienced garden writer who brings her expertise to small-space, quick results vegetable gardening. She also provides sound advice for sowing, growing, and harvesting techniques.

If your time and space are limited b ut you harbor visions of fresh grown vegetables and leafy oases, this book is for you. I just built a fence around my small yard and thanks to this book, I am now planning the layout of a small but productive (I hope) organic garden. This book tells you how to go about it and is packed with advice and good ideas.
_____

I recently received a copy of this book and it has inspired me to add edibles to my patio garden. The author gives quick pointers, (nicely illustrated with photos) with helpful hints on planting, care, choices of crop. She has also divided the suggested plantings by growing time. Working with a limited amount of light and a fairly short season (I live in New York), it gives me an overview of what I'm in for, time-wise as I make my selections. I'd recommend this for urban gardeners and those with limited space who'd like to go a step further than just flowers in your balcony pots.
_____

Initially I bought this book to over come the inadequate coverage on growing herbs in my basic gardening books. This book overcomes the problem by including a much wider variety than the normal parsley, basil, and oregano selection. There are plain instructions for using paper bags to capture seeds or hang foliage for drying.

As a Square Foot Gardner, I'm always interested in getting as much production as I can out of small spaces. This book is not built on the SFG method, but is a great companion to the SFG book because of the way it uses containers to provide gardens on patios, paths, and other constrained spaces. It has many clear photographs and explanations that can keep beginners from going down the wrong path, and inform even experienced gardeners in better ways to tend and use their production.

The best thing is that the article for each plant is short and well illustrated. One does not have to wade through multiple sections to get basic information on growing techniques, how a health plant should look, pest prevention, and harvesting.

Great book, it made a great Christmas gift. great quality and very informative. really enjoyed all the suggestions and ideas.
