Eating locally grown and seasonal foods addresses many of the social and environmental problems raised by today's energy intensive methods of food production. In From Seed to Table, organic gardener Janette Haase offers a month-by-month guide to growing a significant amount of food in a small home garden. From the earliest spring salads to autumn's sweetest root vegetables, this book will show anyone with willing hands and a small plot of earth how to grow an efficient and productive garden and enjoy a healthier, more environmentally responsible diet. Haase takes the home gardener through the tasks of the gardening year, giving clear instructions for the work to be done at each time, from planning to planting to harvesting and storage. And she doesn't forget the best part of growing your own food -- eating! The book includes delicious seasonal recipes and menu ideas plus food for thought in the form of essays on food-related issues that affect everyone.
