Swap the annuals for edibles, creating attractive beds and containers that both beautify the yard and provide a bounty of fresh produce. As a trained chef-turned-professional kitchen garden designer, Marta Teegen knows what a difference freshly harvested vegetables can make to a meal—and how easy it is to ensure seasonal vegetables are always available when you need them. She touts the joys of creating front yard–friendly raised beds and container gardens that take up only a small amount of space and look beautiful to boot, and shares ideas for tucking productive gardens in other small nooks and corners.
Teegen's unique cuisine-based planting methods mean herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers grow next to each other in commingled plots—quickly, reliably, and efficiently. You'll find more than 40 top picks for small-space vegetables that yield big and are trouble-free, plus a variety of menus and 50 recipes for fresh and delicious summer dishes. With food prices on the rise and concern over pesticide residues on produce ever present, the number of homeowners growing vegetables nearly doubled in the last year. Homegrown shows that even urban and suburban dwellers can grow their own vegetables in easy-to-tend plots and spaces.

Gardening is on the rise as the desire for fresh, delicious homegrown vegetables grows. Growing your own vegetables is an easy hobby for a variety of lifestyles, as it doesn't take a large amount of space to yield nutritious carrots or lettuce. All it takes is a bit of passion, care and knowledge, and the rewards are soon there to enjoy.
Both down-to-earth and inspirational, Greens! describes the charm of growing your own vegetables. Swedish author Karin Eliasson runs a kitchen garden and guesthouse in Spain, but her tips are adapted to suit most climates and soil types. In this gardening guide, she gives advice on how to grow, harvest and store more than 100 different vegetable varieties and suggests easy recipes you can use in your own kitchen. With instructive and beautiful photographs, she explains the step-by-step principles of organic gardening-soil, plant feeding, digging, hoeing and watering-and shows how to combine blooming flowers and vegetables in attractive, colorful mixes to attract garden-friendly insects.
This book will not only arm you with the knowledge you need to get started, but also provide experienced and budding gardeners alike with a source for inspiration while they enjoy the beautiful photographs and tips on garden design.
