Book Review Pot it Grow it Eat it by Kathryn Hawkins

grow it pot it eat itI’m still plugging away at the stash of cool looking titles I pilfered from my local library and found another I thought someone out there could use.  (Notice I only review the books I like?  Some are just not worth my or your time!)  We recently reviewed Crops in Pots and I would say that if you’re looking to learn how to container garden, you might want to pick up that one AND this one:  Crops in PotsCrops in Pots and slightly more complicated; the voice of the book seems to be aimed at a more mature gardener, as opposed to one just starting out.  However, the pictures are good and the instructions are clear, the book being quite thorough for such a shorty.  Each plant includes cultural requirements, pruning, when you’ll harvest plus ways to harvest, store and freeze the crop created.  There’s also information on possible problems for each plant suggested.  Each plant gets it’s own pot, plain and simple – no plant combination designs except for herbs are discussed which is why reading Crops in Pots might make for a bit more fun.  There’s a large section dedicated to recipes that utilize the oodles of produce you will have from your awesome container garden; part of the point of the book seems to be to inspire you to both plant and cook!  The book even includes a section on how to grow mushrooms which is something I’ve become interested in lately.

Overall, although I wasn’t dazzled or enthralled, I found it to be worth a read (you can always learn something!), especially if what you need to learn how to do is garden in pots.  Look at your ever-increasing skill set!  Someday people will write songs about you…
