“With charming hand-drawn planting plans, bright color photos, and tempting recipes. Ms. Ogden’s book arms wannabe gardeners with all the tools to plan a productive garden before seeds ever meet the ground.” –Wall Street Journal
“There’s no reason a vegetable garden must be an eyesore, banished to the corner by the garage. The Complete Kitchen Garden combines design advice, garden wisdom and recipes.” –The Chicago Tribune
“ Ogden’s recipes zero in on the freshest possible ingredients. If you don’t have a garden when you crack this book open, you’ll be ordering seeds by the time you put it down.” –New York Times Book Review
