As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Indoor Kitchen Gardening by Elizabeth Millard
The subtitle to this book is: Turn Your Home Into a Year-round Vegetable Garden - Microgreens - Sprouts - Herbs - Mushrooms - Tomatoes, Peppers & More.
This book came out in 2014 and was named one of the "Best Garden Books of 2014" by the Chicago Tribune.
Elizabeth teaches you how to grow edibles inside your own home, where you won't have to worry about seasonal changes or weather conditions - but you do need to make good plant choices and create the right environment.
Elizabeth owns Bossy Acres, a 100-member community-supported farm in Minnesota that provides produce to members and area restaurants. Elizabeth also leads workshops on vegetable and herb gardening - so she knows of what she writes.
One reviewer wrote:
“I bought this book after I borrowed my daughter's copy and tasted the peas sprouts and broccoli sprouts she has been growing. They are delicious and help us to eat organic and local even in the winter in New England. I already have light stands and am very excited about starting sprouts in a few days. I have read most of the book, and love how specific the directions are.“
Hands-on experience, easy to understand directions, and matter of fact guidance - that’s Elizabeth Millard.
