The invaluable resource for home food gardeners!

Ed Smith's W-O-R-D system has helped countless gardeners grow an abundance of vegetables and herbs. And those tomatoes and zucchini and basil and cucumbers have nourished countless families, neighbors, and friends with delicious, fresh produce. The Vegetable Gardener's Bible is essential reading for locavores in every corner of North America!

EVERYTHING YOU LOVED about the first edition of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible is still here: friendly, accessible language; full-color photography; comprehensive vegetable specific information in the A-to-Z section; ahead-of-its-time commitment to organic methods; and much more.

Now, 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 megafarms that use gasoline-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.

  • Great info

    I was recommended this book by several people and could not be happier with the purchase. I've been growing herbs and vegetables in small containers for years and wanted to graduate to a serious organic garden and this book is the ultimate guide to growing a successful and flourishing one. I learned how to choose plants and flowers best suited for the area in which I live, and this book made trickier issues like irrigation an pest-proofing easier than I ever thought. An invaluable resource for gardeners at any stage.

  • Excellent guide

    Before I ordered this book I took a trip to the book store to investigate all of the vegetable gardening books available. This book is extremely informative as well as including plenty of pictures to visually describe the vegetables and what they look like through the growing process, but most importantly what they should look like when you harvest them. The author gives economical ways to store your harvest throughout the fall and winter and covers any questions about any vegetable and growing effectively. I am excited to get my garden going and being able to refer to this guide. You won't be disappointed.
