Description

“. . . speaks eloquently to anyone who resolves to live close to the earth, and to eat well and frugally.” —Indianapolis Monthly


“Marian Towne has done a superb—and witty—job!” —The Weedpatch Gazette


This marvelous cookbook, the product of 50 years of cookery according to seasonal principles, contains hundreds of recipes for more than 90 different fruits, vegetables, and herbs (including such wild crops as mulberries, pawpaws, and violets), locally grown and used at their peak of flavor and freshness. Take it with you as you stroll through the local farmer’s market, or consult it after bringing in the harvest from your own garden.
