Special thanks to Blogging for Books for sponsoring this post!


Spring is finally in the air, and my city garden is calling my name!



Here's a book that has me looking way ahead to harvest time as I plan my spring garden work:


Harvest: Unexpected Projects Using 47 Extraordinary Garden Plants by Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis. This beautifully photographed, gift-worthy guide tells you everything you need to do to transform 47 unexpected garden plants into organic pantry staples, fragrances, floral arrangements, beverages, cocktails, beauty products, bridal gifts, and more.



This book has more than just a pretty cover. In it, you'll learn how to...

  • turn tumeric root into a natural dye 
  • make a lovely lip balm with calamintha 
  • make anise hyssop into a refreshing iced tea 
  • turn apricots into a facial mask. 
  • infuse vinegar with oregano flowers
  • liven up a salad with edible chrysanthemum 



This book has me eyeing my garden as a font of inspiration! I love that I can turn seeds, petals and flowers into amazing gifts for the home!
