Backyard 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.

Congratulations! I am so pleased and the cover looks wonderful. It would definitely grab my eye and I predict a lot of interest in Philly. Wish I could buzz down and join you.

Can't wait to get my copy.

I'm so excited for you! And for me - you know I'll be needing a signed copy. YUM.

The cover looks great - and so do you. Hope you'll come do a signing event when things warm up at the nursery.

This is amazing, el!!! Congrats, again! I really want you to come to LA and go foraging with my brother, who's a master and a great learner...
