      Food: We can't live without it, yet its costs are rising and consuming more of the family budget. In addition, health concerns about the use of pesticides, genetically modified foods, and potential soil mineral depletion in the food supply inspire more people to want to grow their own vegetables. Many of them live in cities with only small yard spaces.

      This book presents new methods devised and tested by author Margaret Park to maximize food production from a small yard. By tightly spacing plants in deep, fertile soil, training plants vertically, and harvesting year-round -- with the help of the inexpensive, portable greenhouse one can build from this book -- a great proportion of a family's vegetable needs can be grown at home -- even in the space it takes to park a car.

      Park has devised and tested a great growing system. Even if people have more space, it doesn't make sense to use more space. Gardeners won't necessarily produce more vegetables, but more space does mean more area to cultivate, weed and water, and less space for other backyard uses. Soil fertility is more important than additional space. The system of composting introduced in the book requires an Effective Microorganisms (EM) medium (mostly wheat bran inoculated with beneficial microorganisms) and two buckets, one for collecting kitchen waste and one for further fermentation. The microorganisms not only feed the plants, they also clean up the soil.

      This comprehensive book is a reflection of the groundswell of enthusiasm for healthy eating … leafy greens in particular. Kale led the charge and now consumers are looking for new alternatives among these inexpensive, nutritious and versatile ingredients.

      Dozens of varieties of leafy greens are featured (67 to be exact), each with a photograph for easy identification. They range from the well-known (spinach) to the trendy (kale and collards) to the obscure (items that mizuna and purslane). With the world growing smaller every day and our grocery store selections expanding, it's probably just a matter of time before you see these at your local grocers.

      All the greens are listed alphabetically, and each listing contains:

      • Scientific and alternate names, and types
      • Historical information, including fascinating folk remedies
      • Nutritional information, as well as tasting notes
      • Recipes that correspond to the particular green
      • How to buy, store, prepare and cook the green
      • Measures and substitutions, equivalents
      • Intriguing and entertaining sidebar boxes
      Award-winning food writer Susan Sampson has created 250 outstanding vegan recipes, a wide and wonderful variety that can be enjoyed as main dishes, sides and even breakfast. Smoothies are the perfect way to incorporate more greens into your diet. The humble Brussels sprouts rise to a whole new level in Brussels and Yukon Hash, dandelion takes a dandy turn in Penne Boscaiola, and Napa simply shines in Grilled Kimcheese Sandwiches. Explore greens from other parts of the world that are now grown in North America: Yu Choy in Yu Choy with Saucy Shiitakes and Baby Corn, or taro leaves that perfectly complete the recipe for West Indies Pepper Pot Soup.

      So stretch beyond your typical cooking routine and tap into a healthier, more interesting way of eating by simply incorporating more greens into your kitchen.
