    3. This book is great! I'd only gotten to "beets" (vegetables in alpha-order in this book) before I exclaimed that aloud. I'm so glad someone has written this book which answers a lot of questions I have had as a burgeoning gardener and food preserver who would like to preserve more of the food I grow (as opposed to stocking up in the bounty of late summer when local farmers are ready to offer good deals). Super good resource, would consider buying for my bookshelf, but for now it's good to know it [...]

    4. This is a great overview of how to grow a garden to serve the needs of a family and any food preservation goals. I like the exploration of a variety of vegetables, fruits, and herbs and realize this is a very broad subject to cover and I think the author did a good job on refining the subject matter to a few key types.

    5. needs a 'skimmed' or 'over my head' option. I picked this book up at the library because I am a sucker for pretty covers. This book, to the gardener, would be a super amazing resource. To me, who has zero green thumb genes, it blurred my eyes with talk of pests, pollination, and other gardeny tech terms that had me close the cover quickly. 😂

    6. This author does an amazing job of organizing the material in this book! It is a very user-friendly gardening book including recipes, storage ideas, etc. for many favorite fruits and vegetables.

    7. This book is great for any gardener as well as those aspiring to be gardeners. There are many topics covered including growing, pests, preserving and more. I have several gardening books and I find that this one is the best yet. It covers many things I have had questions about and the pictures are amazing as well. I am glad to have this to refer back to again and again.Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing a digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

Homegrown Pantry shows you how to can, pickle, ferment, dry, freeze and generally preserve and use your fruits and vegetables. The book is filled with great pictures and the instructions are clear. This would be particularly helpful to those beginning to enjoy growing their own food.

    9. If you are interested in growing or preserving produce, this is the book for you. I am not new to home preserving and it still had some great information for me. But certainly, if you are new to canning, dehydrating, gardening, etc you will find a wealth of knowledge in Homegrown Pantry. The photos are great and the tutorials are easy to understand.Full Disclosure--I received this book for free from netgalley for my review.

    10. This is an excellent instructional book on how to grow, harvest, freeze, store and can different types of vegetables. It's easy to read and understand. You can jump around to the desired sections.
