Grow What You Love: 12 Food Plant Families To Change Your Life

As seen on NBC's Today Show, Grow What You Love is an accessible and inspiring guide that explores just how easy it is to grow your favorite produce and herbs.

"Gardening blogger Murphy's beautiful debut makes gardening just as much an art as a science... Murphy writes in a way that makes it personal and joyous... Instead of focusing on inches, weeks, and weeding, the book is about cultivating a connection to the earth, the outdoors, and food... This book is for anyone who's interested in gardening, no matter how small or large the garden, or how limited the reader's experience."
-- Publishers Weekly

Grow What You Love is a simple guide to growing vegetables, herbs and more that will add flavor and variety to the fresh produce readers can access throughout the year. Aimed at novice and experienced gardeners alike, Grow What You Love is an image-driven, how-to adventure from an expert organic gardener with an enthusiasm for an authentic life.

Lavishly illustrated with more than 250 photographs, the book begins with an exploration of Emily's approach to gardening and how it can fit into modern life with little time and effort. She gives advice on how best to choose food plants that readers love (or will grow to love), and follows with simple methods for garden-to-table growing, including a selection of her favorite seasonal recipes. The result for readers will be a garden-fresh bounty for any time of the year.

Complete with workshops that cover topics like composting, transplanting, pruning, and how to combine plants in the garden, and with online resources and hardiness zone maps, Grow What You Love is packed with goodness for every gardener.
