Having written two books with my radio partner and friend Jessica Walliser, I wanted to write a book on my own about my three favorites from the garden. I’m a tomato and garlic junkie who loves basil. They are three things that link my family together, as you’ll see in the book when it’s released in February of 2010.
It was a labor of love putting the book together. It will teach new gardeners the basics and offer seasoned pros lots of tips. But it’s the stories that make this book so special to me. It chronicles over 25 years of gardening and traces the evolution of a young family.
I’ve posted excerpts and will be writing about what it took to create Tomatoes Garlic Basil.
