Publisher Comments:

Guided by a rediscovered spirit of self-sufficiency, a renewed sense of thrift, and a deepened commitment to the natural environment, legions of people are finding satisfaction in vegetable gardening. As gardeners spend more time in their yards, they look for ways to make their gardens more productive, their garden chores easier, and their outdoor spaces more enjoyable.

Now, with just a little time and a handful of tools, gardeners can create handsome, handcrafted items for their gardens at a fraction of the cost of buying retail. The Vegetable Gardeners Book of Building Projects presents 39 ideas for simple projects from cold frames to compost bins, from planters to picnic tables, and from trellises to tool storage. Each project was hand-selected by Storey's editors to be functional, attractive, and easy to complete. Each includes step-by-step instructions, detailed illustrations, complete materials and lumber lists, no-nonsense tips, and a four-color photograph of the finished product in its natural setting. Projects are as practical as they are simple; many are ideal for the beginning woodworker, and most can be completed in a matter of hours.

Whether a gardener needs a support for his beans and peas or looks forward to relaxing in a lawn chair or garden swing when the work is done, these plans are the perfect starting point.

JaneBePe, December 1, 2014 (view all comments by JaneBePe)
I love this book! It could be subtitled What To Do When It's Cold and Rainy Outside iof you have a garage to work in). I love that the projects are mostly simple. (If I wanted to be a carpenter or woodworker, I would be doing that instead of gardening!) I love that simple projects don't usually take up a lot of time. I love that it's all about my garden! Lots of ways to do raised beds. Build your own cold frame so it fits on top of your raised bed! OK, it does have more complicated stuff for those who want to get into the woodworking part - like the Adirondack chair. But I love it for all the useful, simple garden things.
