Martin has been giving gardening talks to groups all over the country for many years. For the past few years, Jill has joined him for a joint talk called Gardening on the Menu. This book by the same title is a direct response to so many people asking ‘When are you going to write a book?’
In their North Yorkshire garden, they grow a large selection of fresh fruit and vegetables that are all put to good use: some eaten fresh and others stored or preserved. Martin, a professional gardener, has been growing vegetables since he was a teenager and he draws on his many years of practical experience to give easy-to-follow advice and tips on getting the best from your crops. Jill loves food, especially when it involves fruit and vegetables picked fresh from their garden, and she shares a selection of her seasonal dishes, many of which have been family favourites for many years. Martin’s love of gardening and Jill’s love of cooking with fresh garden produce make for the perfect combination in Gardening on the Menu.
A practical guide to over 25 different fruits and vegetables to grow in the garden, with over 100 tried-and-tested, easy to follow recipes and tasty quick-cook dishes.
Excerpt from Foreword by Carol Klein
You’ll learn everything you need to know about growing your own veg and
even when you’ve been doing it for years, you’ll read these pages and think,
just as I have, “ Thanks Martin that’s a better way to do that. I’m going to do it
like that in future and thanks Jill, I can’t wait to taste that!”
