Vegetable Gardener's Bible, 2nd Edition Summary

Vegetable Gardener's Bible, 2nd Edition by Edward C. Smith

Ed Smith is back with a 10th Anniversary Edition for the next generation of vegetable gardeners. New to this edition is coverage of 15 additional vegetables, including an expanded section on salad greens and more European and Asian vegetables. Readers will also find growing information on more fruits and herbs, new cultivar photographs in many vegetable entries, and a much requested section on extending the season into the winter months. No matter how cold the climate, growers can bring herbs indoors and keep hardy greens alive in cold frames or hoop houses. The impulse to grow vegetables is even stronger in 2009 than it was in 2000, when Storey published The Vegetable Gardener's Bible. The financial and environmental costs of fossil fuels raise urgent questions: How far should we be shipping food? What are the health costs of petroleum based pesticides and herbicides? Do we have to rely on very large farms that use petrol powered machinery to grow and harvest crops? With every difficult question, more people think, 'maybe I should grow a few vegetables of my own'. This book will continue to answer all their vegetable gardening questions.
