KITCHEN GARDENS are the most "in" of all gardens and this handy little book by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a good place to start if you're thinking about growing your own vegetables at home. The book is small but loaded with information. Topics such as optimizing space by rotating crops, sticking plants in unusual places (along the driveway), windowsill gardening, and the old standby container gardening are all discussed.

Kailyard redirects here. For the grouping of Scottish literature see Kailyard school. The traditional kitchen garden, also known as a potager (in French, jardin potager) or in Scotland a kailyaird, is a space separate from the rest of the residential garden – the ornamental plants and lawn areas. Most vegetable gardens are still miniature versions of old family farm plots, but the kitchen garden is different not only in its history, but also its design.

A vegetable garden can be as ornate or as utilitarian as you like. Find inspiration from gardens that you plant in rows, build upward, or place in pots. There was a time when people simply had "a garden. Vegetables and flowers were chosen for their usefulness and intermixed in one garden, a cottage garden, that was often in the front yard. Now, you can create a conversation piece as well as a productive little vegetable patch. An old set of drawers finds a new purpose as a planter when arranged on a ladder-like structure. The drawers are deep enough to grow most vegetables and there is even room for a small tomato cage. Continue to 2 of 10 below.

Most vegetable gardens are still miniature versions of old family farm plots, but . The kitchen garden may serve as the central feature of an ornamental, all-season landscape, or it may be little more than a humble vegetable plot.

Most vegetable gardens are still miniature versions of old family farm plots, but the kitchen garden is different not only in its history, but also its design. It is a source of herbs, vegetables and fruits, but it is often also a structured garden space with a design based on repetitive geometric patterns. The kitchen garden has year-round visual appeal and can incorporate permanent perennials or woody shrub plantings around (or among) the annuals.

In the words of a local newspaper, grass is out and vegetables are in - even in the urban yard. KITCHEN GARDENS are the most "in" of all gardens and this handy little book by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a good place to start if you're thinking about growing your own vegetables at home. The book is small but loaded with information. Although some of the photographs show acreage not often found inside the city, many of the photos and suggestions are helpful for smaller patches. Topics such as optimizing space by rotating crops, sticking plants in unusual places (along the driveway), windowsill gardening, and the old standby container gardening are all discussed. You can dig up the back yard, the side yard, and the front yard and plant a mix of vegetables and flowers (which are often edible).
KG provides lists of plants you might grow, including a variety of tomatoes. My new nursery catalogues have arrived and one of them (White Flower Farm) offers a package of three of the tomato plants recommended by this book. Tomatoes aren't the only things you can grow, however. Beans, eggplants, carrots, and peppers can all be found in the kitchen garden. Okra, squash, and other vining plants can be escorted up trellises and over fences. You might grow greens and other plants that require good drainage in raised beds. Nothing like a bowl of fresh mesclun salad or a pot of steamed baby pac choi you just picked.
I like the book because it shows you how to get started with "environmentally friendly" kitchen gardening. The book is attractive to look at and pleasant to read, and it organizes many good ideas under one cover. This is a good buy for the beginner who might not want to invest a great deal of money in a bigger more expensive book but wants first-class information from the experts. About one-quarter of the book covers regional variations in kitchen gardening (about 6-7 pages per region). Given you probably live in one of the regions discussed, you should be able to use most of the book.

For those who want their vegetable gardens to provide bountiful harvest as well as being aesthetically pleasing, the kitchen garden is the way to go. The addition of flowers and other non-vegetable plants add colour and dimension to a garden that would otherwise be fairly mundane and drab. As the book discusses, there are essentially two kitchen garden traditions: the English and the French (Potagers). Aside from the short discussion on these two variations, the book contains much that is familiar to any but the most novice gardener. The latter portion of the book is devoted to recommended varieties of vegetables for five basic growing regions of North America. While I always find such overviews interesting, in my opinion it diminishes the usefulness of the book.
