9780977348930: The Vegetable Growers Handbook

From soils to seeds to soups, most everything you need to know for gardening success.

This highly practical book contains all the information you need to successfully grow more than 50 common vegetables. There are specific step-by-step instructions for each crop: soil requirements, variety selection, raising transplants, direct sowing, protection, harvesting, seed saving, and storage. After telling you what to do (and when), the Handbook also tells you why, by explaining in detail how crops grow. A book with imagination, it also discusses many unusual crops, culinary herbs, and more. It then goes on to unusual growing ideas, edible flowers, enhanced nutrition foods, additional uses for common crops, and even how to use common edible wild plants and garden weeds. There is also a small selection of outstanding vegetarian recipes. The Vegetable Growers Handbook is the companion to The Organic Gardeners Handbook.

About the Author:

Frank Tozer grew up in England and moved to the United States in his early twenties, bringing with him the English affinity for gardening. He has been fascinated by edible plants and food gardening for all of his adult life and believes that almost everyone would benefit from growing some of their own. He became a writer by default after spending many years learning about plants and gardening from books, when he came to the conclusion that he could write better books than those he was reading. This began a writing career that has so far resulted in four books on various aspects of growing food. He first moved to Santa Cruz, California, to be an apprentice at the famous UCSC Farm and Garden, but stayed there because of the wonderful climate for gardening. He now lives in the Santa Cruz Mountains, in a house he built almost singlehandedly, surrounded by a 2 ½-acre garden of woods, fruit trees, shrubs, and a multitude of edible plants (he long ago lost count of the number, but estimates it to be close to 500 species).
