I’m a big fan of this little book. Equal parts information and inspiration, it gives the beginning vegetable gardener the jump-start they need without becoming overwhelmed. Do Grow is filled with simple-to-follow instructions on planting and harvesting 10 vegetables, and it includes recipes. The photographs and illustrations are as great as the advice, which follows sustainable and organic gardening principles. If you’ve always wanted to grow your own vegetables but haven’t known how to start, this book is just the tool you need.

— S.B.
