Publisher Comments:

Discover the last W.O.R.D. in vegetable gardening with Ed Smith's amazing gardening system. By integrating four principles — Wide beds, Organic methods, Raised beds, and Deep beds — Smith reinvents vegetable gardening, making it possible for everyone to have the best, most successful garden ever. By following this complete system you cultivate deep, powerful soil that nourishes plants and discourages pests and disease. The result is fewer weeds, healthier plants, and lots of great-tasting vegetables. Plus, you'll enjoy gardening as you never have before. The Vegetable Gardener's Bible — the last W.O.R.D. in vegetable gardening.

Review:

"Smith, who raises nearly 100 varieties of vegetables in his Vermont garden, recommends a method of gardening that calls for wide, raised, deep beds, resulting in more vegetables with less work....There are 550 color photographs that complement the informative text." George Cohen, Booklist

Review:

"Smith...clearly explains everything novice and experienced gardeners need to know to grow vegetables and herbs using his system of wide, deep, raised beds....Detailed explanations of companion planting, crop rotation, and succession planting add to his book's value." Library Journal

Review:

"One of the most American gardening tomes ever published...the principles Smith advocates are completely sound, as is his practical advice." The New York Times

Review:

"An abundance of photographs...visually bolster the techniques described, while frequent subheads, sidebars and information-packed photo captions make the layout user-friendly....Smith doesn't necessarily break new ground here, but his book is thorough and infused with practical wisdom and a dry Vermont humor that should endear him to readers." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

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!
