Join me in welcoming Jenni Blackmore,
author of The Food Lover's Garden: Growing, Cooking and Eating Well






Read the book review here

The book comes hot off the presses on March 31, 2017. From now until then, you can pre-order the book at a 20% discount here

Jenni Blackmore will be popping in to the gardening for beginners forums between Monday, March 20-25, 2017, promoting her new book, and answering questions.

Jenni has visited permies before, promoting her book, Permaculture for the Rest of Us, in November 2015. We're thrilled to have her back with this beautiful new book on offer to our members.


At the end of the week, we'll make a draw for 3 lucky winners to win a copy of her book! From now until Friday, all new threads started in the gardening for beginners forum are eligible to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up to receive  the Daily-ish email.

The winner will be notified by email and must respond within 48 hours. Only the winners who respond within that timeframe will receive their book. Watch for a PM, and a notice in this thread announcing the winners!

Please do not put Jenni's name in the title of your thread. We like these threads to be accessible to everyone, and some people may not post their experiences if the thread is directed to Jenni alone.

Posts in this thread won't count as an entry to win the book, but please feel free to say, "Hi!" to Jenni and make her feel welcome!

Thanks for inviting me back! I have indeed written another book which I also got to illustrate with about thirty watercolor paintings, ergo I spent many hours last summer sitting outside, under a sun umbrella, painting veggies. It was a wonderful way to combine two of my fave. things - food and paint. What's really exciting is that I have not yet seen the book but am expecting it to arrive on my doorstep any day now - just like a stork with a bundle bearing basket I'm sure it will be quite obvious when that day and the books arrive because I will no doubt be scattering my posts with emojies and exclamation points!!! Until then color me Excited!

Thanks Anne! QuackaDoodle pretty much describes who we are, (in more ways than one ) although the rabbits and goats complain that they should have their say too. I will try to insert an image of the logo which does give them equal billing but don't hold your breath - I am technically challenged, no doubt about that!

Hi Anne! I actually figured out how to post images! Yay!!! - (well, not quite true - a kind permie in one of the other forums told me how) - so here is an image of our logo which I said I'd try to post. Naming a farm is a big deal I think because it's almost the same as naming a company and similarly with the logo. I wanted something a bit quirky that would stand out and this seems to work. I also painted a sign for the duck shed which I use as a logo on the duck eggs which you might enjoy.

Congratulations to the three winners of my new book, The Food Lover's Garden! I just received my first copies on Friday and I love the look of it. As usual everyone at New Society Publishers did a wonderful job. I'm delighted

I do hope you are all as pleased with it as I am and that in someway The Food Lover's Garden helps to enrich your enjoyment of growing, preparing and, of course, eating homegrown.
