This book is an easy and informative introduction to growing vegetables by planting the uneatable portions of produce one normally discards. Growing herbs, fruits, and vegetables in this manner can easily be achieved with a small flower bed, or even indoors, if tended properly. The book has many colorful pictures, and comes with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. This guide is very basic, and thus well suited for novices. However, even seasoned gardeners may not be aware they can use portions of their produce to regrow food, or how to do it. There is no need to spend money on seeds and starter plants or expensive pots, as recycling materials you have on hand will work just fine. The ideas presented here are simple enough that parents and children can work together to make this a productive activity for the entire family. There are many helpful hints sprinkled throughout, including some troubleshooting tips. There is no better time than now to think about growing your own food.
VERDICT This book is perfect for beginners or for those with limited space, plus it encourages habits that are good for your wallet, your health, and the environment.
