Backyard Foraging...hot off the press!
It's been a long time coming but the wait is over! I'm finally in possession of my new book, Backyard Foraging: 65 Familiar Plants You Didn't Know You Could Eat. And this afternoon I head south to the Philadelphia Flower Show where I'll give my first presentation on the subject tomorrow (3/5 @ 11:30 am), hopefully to a room full of interested gardeners and cooks.
I finished writing the book more than a year ago and since then the folks at Storey Publishing have worked their magic, combining my text and Rob Cardillo's images in a gorgeous book that I hope will tempt gardeners to experiment with foraging.
It's a different approach than you'll find in a foraging field guide. I explain how to harvest while maintaining the ornamental value of your plants, and I also make suggestions about how to use your harvest, including some unusual (and delicious) recipes.
You can pre-order from Amazon (they ship next week), or let me know if you'd like a signed copy. I sure hope you like it.
