Raised-Bed Vegetable Gardening Made Simple - Inside the Cookbook - 3.5 Stars
Raymond Nones has a lot of useful information in this book. At first it is overwhelming to a novice like me. I almost want to qualify this as an ongoing resource rather than a read and forget kind of book. I love the idea of raised-bed gardening. The diagrams in this book were detailed and quite complete, but seemed to be more for a seasoned gardener. Nones also includes when and what to plant in your vegetable garden which is good to know. Fresh veggies are always wonderful. I cant wait to get started on my own raised bed. I am sure I will come back to verify information along the way. Recipes yearn for fresh vegetables.
Here is a favorite of mine:
2 cups fresh okra (sliced into pieces)
2 fresh tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic(minced)
2 T olive oil
In a saute pan, warm the olive oil. Add the minced garlic. Saute 2-3 minutes. Add the okra and cook until the slime is cooked out 'cause nobody likes slimy okra. Add the tomatoes. Cook 3-4 more minutes.
This is great over rice, chicken or all by itself. Enjoy!
