Homegrown Whole Grains

Grow, Harvest, and Cook Wheat, Barley, Oats, Rice, Corn and More

By Sara Pitzer

This invaluable guide shows you exactly how to grow, harvest, process, store, and cook nine of the most common whole grains: wheat, corn, barley, millet, oats, rice, rye, spelt, and quinoa. Cultivating these crops is surprisingly easy, and it takes less space than you might imagine — with just 1,000 square feet, for example, you can grow enough wheat for 50 loaves of fresh bread. The book includes delicious, simple recipes for cooking with whole grains (whether you grow them yourself or not) and features a gorgeous cover by renowned artist Nikki McClure that makes the book a wonderful gift for all the gardeners and cooks on your list.
