“Modern Pioneering” by Georgia Pellegrini, book review
This book is a charming, girly type of gardening and cooking book. It is full of beautiful pictures with how-to instructions for making the recipes, using the vegetables and fruits that you grew in the garden.
The book has a section about gardening including lots of lists of veggies to grow, how to start from seeds and how to harvest. The majority of the book is recipes for using common and less common vegetables and fruits. And the end section of the book has some DIY ideas for the pioneering type of person including making a lean-to for outdoor shelter and coloring mason jars for vases.
This book is pretty to look at and read. There are lots of photos and drawings with directions and comments. I think this book is for the urban gardener/ pioneer, rather than someone who is living on a farm. Would make a great gift.
