This is a book designed to be pleasurable to peruse. Pretty photos make you want to garden more. I'm learning to ignore most recommendations to place plants in "full sun": our sun will burn them up quick. So far I've tried and enjoyed one recipe from this book, and I look forward to trying more.

This is a beautifully done book that will inspire gardeners who love to cook. Ellen's knowledge of plants and her explanations, illustrations and photographs of beautiful kitchen gardens, make it look it look possible for even a novice. Highly recommended. It takes a sense of timing that can't be taught in a recipe.
This chilled soup involves no cooking, so you won't heat up the kitchen. If you don't have yellow tomatoes, it is equally delicious made with any garden-ripe tomatoes. It can be served for lunch or a light dinner, along with garlic bread and a savory tart. Serves 6. Add the basil, olive oil, vinegar, pepper and pulse to blend, until smooth or keep a few chunks for texture. Cover and refrigerate until well-chilled, at least 1 hour. Garnish with croutons and edible flowers, such as nasturtiums, chive blossoms, calendula petals or Johnny jump-ups.

With soup, you can follow a recipe, or you can get creative. Because I'm a gardener, I like to compare making soup to arranging flowers. I choose a few large flowers to serve as the focal point and provide substance, then add fillers that offer support. When I start a soup, I select the main vegetable that dominates and defines the character, then add a range of supporting vegetables and herbs that provide flavor accents.
Spontaneity in the kitchen is essential.
To add more depth to the flavors, I often roast the vegetables before adding them to the pot. My technique: In a roasting pan, spread the vegetables in a single layer and roast in a degree oven until slightly singed and soft, about one hour.
A vegetable puree is the simplest kind of soup to make, but it can quickly become a melange of vegetables, which makes it less interesting. To keep the flavors clean, focus on one or two vegetables, such as winter squash and carrots, or leeks and potatoes. Add enough water or broth to cover, and simmer until vegetables are soft, testing with a fork or knife. Turn off the heat, and either use an immersion blender or transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.

Adding cream or yogurt is optional, as is tossing in a handful of fresh spinach to add color. Stock is the flavor foundation to most soups and essential in a simple chunky soup. Made by simmering vegetables or chicken in a stock pot, the most basic ingredients are onions, carrots, celery, garlic and leeks.
To avoid a heavy hand with herbs, use a bundle of herbs, known as a bouquet garni , which is traditionally made by wrapping together sprigs of thyme, parsley and tarragon, in a fresh bay leaf tied with kitchen string. Another approach: Wrap the herbs in a loosely woven cloth bag or a piece of cheesecloth. Once you've made a batch of aromatic stock, you can easily make a chunky soup by sauteing a blend of any chopped vegetables in butter or oil, add stock to cover, then stir in slivers of cooked chicken, rice or noodles to give it more texture.
Then simmer until all is tender.
