Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover Ed Smith's Total Gardening System. It's the Last W-O-R-D in vegetable gardening!

Wide rows are easier to tend and provide a bigger yield per square foot. You'll get up to four times more delicious vegetables! Organic methods are better for you, your garden, and the earth. They really work, so you'll have fewer pests and diseases! Raised beds mean soil that drains better and warms up faster in the spring. The result is bigger, healthier, and better vegetables! Deep soil provides a reservoir of nutrients and moisture that encourages root growth while producing the best harvest ever!

"The Vegetable Gardener's Bible is an impressive accomplishment by a seasoned expert. It is destined to end up dog-eared in the potting shed." --James A. Baggett, Executive Editor, Country Living Gardener
