Amazon Description:

Eating vegetables is good for you. Growing your own is even better.

“You are what you eat” may be a timeworn adage, but it makes a valid point. When you grow your own vegetables, you’ll not only eat better food, but you’ll also regain your connection to the seasons and the natural rhythms of life. Growing your own will change what’s on your dinner table, and it will change you.

That’s the philosophy behind Carol Klein’s impeccably thorough guide to home vegetable gardening. In its pages, she reveals all the tricks to becoming a successful small-plot gardener, from preparing the soil, to deciding what to grow (and when to plant and harvest), to coping with pests, weeds, and other common problems. The book’s second half is a veritable encyclopedia of the various vegetables-delicate salad greens, hardy root vegetables, and everything in between-that you might choose to grow.
