"A growing good food book"--cover.
Description
"Acadia Tucker's longtime love affair with perennial foods has produced this easy-to-understand guide to growing and harvesting them. A regenerative farmer deeply concerned about global warming, Tucker believes there may be no better time to plant these hardy crops. Sturdy and deep rooted, perennials can weather climate extremes more easily than annuals. They tend to thrive without chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and they don't need as much water, either. These long-lived plants also help build healthy soil, turning the very ground we stand on into a giant carbon sponge. Tucker lays the groundwork for tending an organic, regenerative garden. For her, this is gardening as if our future depends on it, and she spells out why. Most of the book is dedicated to profiles of 34 popular herbs, fruits, and vegetables, with instructions on how to plant, grow, and harvest them. Tucker also includes 34 recipes."--Back cover.
