Master gardener debuts how-to fruit tree tome

It’s that time of year again: Gardening season is just around the corner.

Join master gardener and cookbook author Tara Austen Weaver at Eagle Harbor Book Company at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 11 as she offers tips and tricks from her new book, “Growing Berries and Fruit Trees in the Pacific Northwest: How to Grow Abundant, Organic Fruit in Your Backyard.”

Weaver is a trained master gardener and author of “The Butcher and the Vegetarian and Orchard House: How a Neglected Garden Taught One Family to Grow,” which chronicles how she and her family attempted to revive a long-neglected Seattle garden and orchard.

Her food blog, Tea & Cookies, was selected as one of the top 50 food sites in the world by both the Times of London and The Independent (UK) and has been featured on Saveur, Oprah.com, Apartment Therapy, The Kitchn and BonAppetit.com.

Growing fruit is rewarding and low-effort, and Weaver is a clear and capable guide for Pacific Northwest growers both west and east of the Cascades. This engagingly written and beautifully illustrated book covers more than 75 cultivars of berries and fruit trees — from common varieties such as apples, pears, and strawberries to more unusual fruits like kiwi berries and quince.

The book includes recipes for jams, sauces, curds, caramel, and other ways to preserve your bountiful harvest.

Also inside you’ll find tips on how to keep your garden organic through soil maintenance, natural additives, and proper plant placement; how to grow plants in containers and other methods for apartment dwellers or homeowners short on space; and sidebars showcasing historical orchards, fruit enthusiasts, gleaning organizations and more.
