The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener a New Twist on Container Gardening

one-pot gourmet gardener review

one-pot gourmet gardener reviewBefore we moved to a house with a large yard, I did most of my gardening in containers. We didn’t have good soil or space for a garden, so I planted what I liked the most and grew what I could. There wasn’t any rhyme or reason to what I was growing, and at the end of the season I ended up with extras of some items. I love having a big garden now, but sometimes still use containers since it’s a lot closer to the kitchen door easier to grab when I’m cooking. I’m still new to gardening, and sometimes need some guidance in what to plant for the things we love to eat the most.

one-pot gourmet gardener reviewSince I’m starting to plan next year’s garden already, I was more than happy to get a copy of The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener to review. It’s a cook book, a gardening how-to and a reference guide all in one. Inside the hard cover book you will find different gardening tips, plans for planting your containers and even tips for starting your own compost piles. It’s got everything a beginner would need to start their own container garden.

one-pot gourmet gardener reviewAs great as gardening tips are, there are a lot of references to start your own garden out there. Where The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener breaks away from the pack is how they set up the cookbook portion in the book. Not only do they tell you what is best to make with different ingredients, but they also teach you what to grow together. Not every plant does well in a container garden, and some don’t make good container mates with other vegetables. But The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener not only tells you what works well together, but suggests the best growing practices for your favorite recipes. If you like certain jams, drinks, soups or pizzas The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener tells you what you the best fruits and vegetables to plant together.

The recipes inside The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener aren’t your grandma’s recipes. They include mixed drinks, possets, flat bread pizza and things you’d expect to find at a fancy restaurants. I love how the book takes gardening to another level, and while it’s the cool thing to do right now – these recipes and pairings are beyond what you’ll find in other cookbooks and garden reference guides.
