Description: Joined together as a community through a shared passion for good cooking, good growing -- and good deeds -- gardener cooks from every corner of the country dip into their recipe boxes to share a bounty of recipes for produce fresh from the garden. 

Here are 15 dishes featuring zucchini. Seven for eggplants and nine for potatoes, not to mention potato salads. Dozens of keepers for tomatoes, red and green. Plus recipes using squash blossoms, peppers, asparagus, okra, nasturtiums, sage, fennel, turnips, berries, fava beans, artichokes, basil, black walnuts, rose geraniums, and mesclun. 

There are 26 salads and 29 soups, and a rich selection of main courses that show how gardeners often rethink the traditional approach to "the meal," fusing unexpected vegetables and herbs with traditional chicken, fish, and meat. 

And with the same creativity and desire to make the best use of what's grown, there are over 30 recipes for original gardener's desserts like Zucchini Blondies, Apple-Fennel Crisp with Pine Nut Topping, Poached Peaches with Vanilla Custard and Wild Blackberries, and Thyme-Infused Lemon Sorbet. 

Amplifying the recipes are hundreds of lively sidebars and tips to benefit cook and gardener alike. Learn The Many Ways Peas Please. How to Have Basil in Winter. The important differences between Fresh vs. Dried Capsicums. Plus How to Have Your Tomatoes Rise and Shine, Noodle Nuances, and Fennel: An All-Embracing Garden-to-Table Plant.
