KIRKUS REVIEW

In the same format as their Let's Make Bread, . . .Jam, and . . . Soup, Johnson and Dorn show in words and photos how to plan, prepare, plant, tend, and harvest a salad garden. Suggested crops are lettuce, spinach, radishes, carrots, small onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, and sweet peppers--the last two, for a ""head start,"" grown from nursery plants rather than seeds. Johnson appends three recipes for dressing--but one, with no warning, calls for fl teaspoon of cayenne, and two use commercial ketchup. The gardening directions, while they won't answer a novice's every question, do make the activity seem attractive.
