Product description

Whether you're tired of rising supermarket prices or you have a green thumb but need a little guidance, Growing Your Own Vegetables is a handy guide to becoming more self-reliant in the garden. Drawn from the authors' years of hands-on experience and expert advice from the best-selling Encyclopedia of Country Living, this guide is a complete manual for creating a vegetable garden, including planning, size considerations, seasonal conditions, climate zones, and other cultivation basics. The second part of the book is a crop-by-crop guide to planting, cultivating, and harvesting the delicious vegetables we love to eat; onions, leafy greens, stems and flowers (rhubarb, artichoke, broccoli), roots (spuds, radishes, jicama), grasses and grains (just imagine; your own wheat field!), legumes, gourds, and the nightshade family (that would be tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant). Packed full of information, Growing Your Own Vegetables is an invaluable resource for home gardeners of all stripes.
