There are endless books on how to grow your own veg, fruit and herbs but many stop
there. The book Grow Your Own Groceries goes one step further, it describes how to
cook your produce, what vitamins and goodness it has and how keep them when they are
This book is fairly and squarely aimed at the novice to medium experienced gardener
who wants to grow veg, fruit and herbs for eating. The more exotic and less used
vegetables aren't covered. The likes of jerusalem artichokes are not covered in this
book. But then the novice gardener is probably not that interested in them.
the book covers the commoner veg, fruit and herbs very well. Not only how to grow
them but also how to use them in the kitchen. There are several recipes for each of
the produce and we liked them because they were very simple to prepare.
In the herb section, folklore is covered in detail for each herb. These
nuggets of information have been around for hundreds of years so it's likely they have
more than a grain of truth in them.
Healthy eating is the objective of
this book and each fruit veg and herb has a section on their possible benefits. All in
all, this is an excellent book for the novice gardener who want to start growing their
own groceries. At only �9.99 (retail price) it represents good value.
