Featuring the very best recipes from her weekly Seattle-Post Intelligencer column "Fresh from the Garden," Ann Lovejoy's newest book consolidates her passion for gardening and cooking into a year-round celebration of fresh, organic ingredients. Organized by season, her simple, uncluttered recipes emphasize bright flavors, aromatic herbs, and an abundance of fresh produce — from familiar favorites like raspberries and zucchini to more exotic items such as garlic tips and dandelion greens. Recipes include Lavender Lemonade, Grilled Prawns with Pumpkin Seed Salsa, Garlic Turkey with Green Peppercorn Gravy, Cress and Fennel Soup, Ginger-Berry Shortcake, and many more. Lovejoy offers a wealth of advice on selecting and growing specific varieties of produce, and her time-tested organic gardening tips are designed to help readers make the most of their growing year.
Praise for Ann Lovejoy’s Handbook of Northwest Gardening: "A fountain of inspiration. . . If one of your resolutions this year is to garden without fighting Mother Nature, this book will teach you to make peace with your plot of land."—Seattle P-I, Feb
