The Zero Waste Garden: Grow what you eat & eat what you grow by Ben Raskin


I picked this up because I have recently started a mini kitchen garden. This was my first spring with the concept, and I have cooked my radishes and zucchini, and this book felt like it came at just the right time!
It is a colourful book and helpful to those who are seriously considering reducing their wastes from gardening. The first half talks about general information, while the latter gives a page by page detail of a crop and the related information. There are tips and strategies to increase what you can get out of limited space. I found some of the pages more helpful than others but overall was happy to have picked this up.
I gave up on a few unrealistic plans for my tiny garden and added few possibilities for this year or the next! An advanced gardener may not find anything too new in this collection, but this is a helpful tool for a beginner.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.

  1. That sounds good! I did a veg garden last year but got everything out into the garden too late and ended up with four portions of runner beans (which were delicious) and having kept a record I know they cost me £15 per portion!!! But I might try another year as it was fun to do and I learned a lot, I just couldn’t face the stress this year. Hope your garden continues to go well.
