Publisher Comments:

Intended for those who want to enjoy eating super-fresh homegrown produce but don't know how, this book is a concise guide vegetable gardening system for busy people and first-time gardeners. 
Readers will learn how to set their garden and why the time spent getting ready to sow will be repaid many times over during the summer. They will find out how to grow, learning all about mulches and weed covers, garden sites, and planting plans. Then, vegetable by vegetable, they will see how to make their garden grow and which craops are for them.
By growing their own vegetables, readers will enjoy crops harvested at the peak of perfection, bringing food from garden to table in minutes flat. And they'll be eating the freshest home-grown vegetables, herbs, and fruit available instead of the underripe or limp, sickly offerings so often found in supermarkets.
