It's too bad this book hasn't been more popular. It really is fantastic. I have been gardening for 25 years and my family before me, and this is the one I recommend the most to beginners and novice gardeners alike. No color photos, but thorough and accurate in describing all aspects of growing individual vegetables--including cooking suggestions! That's important when you are growing something new to you. The reason I love it for beginners is that it is laid out in approximately two-pages-per-veggies format so you don't get bogged down in unnecessary details (after all, I know you're just dying to get out there & try it!). But he includes enough pertinent info that it's a perfect reference for those with more experience. For example, each vegetable has an introductory paragraph it that may include history or modern importance, etc. Then includes nutritional content, preferred soil type, various planting info (sowing vs transplanting, when & how), germination info, plant hardiness and care, pests and how to handle them, harvesting (how, how much to expect, when, storage), seed saving, other "unusual" ideas for that vegetable and lastly, cooking suggestions. Mind you, there's only a few sentences on each topic, but if you need more info there's plenty of other books for that. Also, I love that he is thorough in his list of included veggies--many unusual ones that are hard to find info on. This is my go-to book.

I have been gardening all my life. My mother would send me out to keep an eye on my grandmother while she gardened. Of course she put me to work! I know quite a bit about growing vegetables. And this it the BEST gardening book I have ever read. He is absolutely a master at vegetable gardening. I loved mine so much i sent one to my niece. There is no filler in this book. Straight to the point. This is the only book I refer to. You will not be disappointed!

This book is filled with important facts about raising vegetables. One of the best features of this book is that, for each vegetable listed, the following information is provided: Introduction, Nutritional content, Soil ph, Recommended Soil Preparation, Planning, Planting specifics for raising transplants, Starting them inside or outside, Spacing, Care and, How and when to harvest. They also give a rundown of facts such as length of harvest, yield per plant and yield per square foot. It's very concise and an excellent investment for the beginner or the well-seasoned gardener.

This book is my vegetable bible. It is packed with information on each vegetable but in a great format, clear and detailed. If I had to pick one vegetable book, this is it.

This book provides more detailed and easy to read information on individual crops than any other gardening books I've seen. The author is clear, thorough, and even entertaining in sharing his gardening research and experiences in an easy to navigate format. The history of each plant, nutritional content, cultivation, seed saving, and basic recipes are covered here. The introduction is a good read as well. This book in combination with The Organic Gardeners Handbook, by the same author, provides a fairly complete food garden reference guide.
