It’s not often you find a book that makes you feel like you are in the garden with the author.  In this post, I share with you a publication by British superstar Alys Fowler titled: The Edible Garden.

Highlights in The Edible Garden Book Review

In the book, Alys highlights interesting edible topics that caught my eye as a homesteading gal. I think what I love most about this book is Alys Fowler and I have a lot in common.  Below are the 2 highlights I took away from this publication.

Foraging

I love the section on Foraging because it is something I’ve always wanted to experience safely being surrounded by woods in northwest Ohio.   Here are 3 points that stood out in the book:

  • Be sure you check with the landowner before you harvest or uproot any plants.
  • Certain plants are protected by law so check with forestry officials or landowner before foraging.  In Ohio, I would check out the Wildlife Ohio DNR.Gov site for details.
  • Be a sustainable forager and only take what you need.  This is called harvesting responsibility: seed and plants are the future.

Seed Starting – Hardening Off

Safely bringing those new seed starters out to the edible garden has always been a challenge for me.  In The Edible Garden, Book Alys points out how you can easily use a cold frame or a makeshift cold frame to shelter those new baby plants.
