Many thanks to The Herb Lady.
This book is very good. She has multiple uses and even recipes. She really knows her plants. I like the unique recipes, too.
This is a good book for someone just moving into the desert environment or someone who lives there and is beginning to get interested in edible landscope. Thoughtful and personal. A comfortable, non challenging introduction.Those who are interested in food gardens that can be great for front yards may be more interested inThe Beautiful Food Garden: Creative Landscaping With Vegetables, Herbs, Fruits & Flowers.
