Présentation de l'éditeur

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 very large farms that use petrol 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

UPDATE: I just had to come back a year later to reaffirm just how much I depend on this book. Seriously, it's all that and then some! My poor paperback is so beat up on the outside. But the inside is holding up very well, so is the actual binding. I've tried so many times to put it away, but it ends up coming right back out shortly after. Anytime I get to thinking about growing something or if I want to improve things in the garden, check the PH, nutrients, etc. back to the book I go. I really do highly recommend it to anyone who isn't yet a "master" gardener. Who knows, they might even learn something from it! I think the reason it is so popular, other than the data being dependable, is the layout is so common sense. The whole back of the book has pages dedicated to each vegetable and you just go in alphabetical order to access that page. So my point is, if you are floundering around Amazon trying to pinpoint which gardening book to start with, this is it!

ORIGINAL REVIEW: I started gardening for the first time last year and have used this book to the point that the edges are curled and it looks like it's 10 years old! It tells a little about everything. Whenever I need to know how deep to plant, spacing or what nutrients plants need, it's all right there on one page! I believe it is more focused on northern gardens, but I live in the deep south and it still came in quite handy! I never actually put this book away. If I do, it comes right back out within a few days. It is a great introduction to gardening organically and tells enough to get you started on everything. If you need more information you would need to research further, but this book provides enough to get you going for sure. I give it 5 stars for the layout, pictures, information and ease of use! Happy gardening!

HASH(0x9313fb58) étoiles sur 5 One of the better all-around vegetable gardening books 6 novembre 2011
Par HuskerFan - Publié sur

I own a number of books on vegetable gardening, as I have been gardening [and collecting topical books] for over 35 years in 7 different sites. I've observed that in many garden how-to books, the authors get very carried away with themselves, touting "my way" as the only way. To me, that's kind of off-putting, due to each garden is so different from all others, even in a neighboring yard.

I don't get a lot of the "my way" attitude from this book. It's chock full of useful information, but the author is careful to say there is more than one way to do many of the chores and tasks related to the vegetable garden, as well as options for varieties of plants and seeds. One thing you won't find is a bunch of recipes or cooking ideas, which is fine with me. I don't cook in the garden, and I have plenty of recipes in my RECIPE books - don't need them in the gardening books.

The text is in an easy conversational style, which I appreciated. The book offers sections on preparation, composting, fertilizer, pest control. The back part of the book is vegetable specific, with tips on how to grow various veggies along with the names of proven varieties and comparisons of those. Lastly, there is a section on herb gardening, which is an art in and of itself. This book will serve as a wonderful basic reference for anyone starting out with their first (or second or 20th) vegetable garden. After all, when it comes to gardening, in a sense don't we start all over again every year?!

HASH(0x9313fd98) étoiles sur 5 Good for Northerners. 25 juin 2013
Par D. Larsen - Publié sur

I saw this book advertised as being essential for vegetable gardeners "anywhere in the country." That may be true if you're first starting out. I did learn some stuff from this book.

However, I live in North Carolina, and much of it didn't apply to me. I found information on heating the ground and extending the season, etc. much too heavily weighted against living with heat and humidity and providing good air circulation, etc. Also, he leaves out many mulches, gardening practices and pests from the South.

The author talks about many good garden practices, but you can find that information in many places. I agree with another reviewer who suggested some of the in-depth seed catalogs, like Johnny's. (Johnny's has been invaluable to me, and they're based in Maine ....)

Also, the heft of this book didn't seem worth it for the graphics, cute headers, info boxes, etc. Some liken it to a coffee table book, but I'm reminded more of a middle school textbook.

I'm glad so many have reviewed this book so highly, and I hope that has translated into many happy gardeners! If you are a Northern gardener, I can see how it could be your "bible."

I'd recommend the Sqaure Foot Gardening book by Mel Bartholomew for someone just starting out- or anyone, really, the Southern Living books if you're south of Mason-Dixon, extensive seed catalogs, or even the Ortho series (or something similar you can find at a garden center) before I'd recommend this expensive, weighty tome that is pretty to look at but short of hard, useful info in my opinion. Wish I had known this guy was writing from a Vermont gardening perspective before I bought this book.

HASH(0x93142114) étoiles sur 5 Perfect for a newbie 4 mai 2010
Par Bryna Griffin - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am the kind of person who will check out dozens of reference books on a topic before I pick one to buy. This one seemed far and away the best vegetable gardening book I looked at. Here are the reasons:

1. Made for a beginner, like me. It starts from the very beginning stages of choosing a spot, planning a garden and includes clear and logical arguments for why the method of wide raised beds is best.

2. The language is friendly, practical and to the point. I don't want to have to pick useful bits out of someone's rambling gardening philosophy, but nor do I want a book so technical I don't know what I'm looking at or too basic to be useful. This is the perfect balance for me.
I bought this book and literally sat down to read it (tables and side boxes included) cover to (almost) cover in one afternoon. I'm not someone who reads text books that way! I'm a skimmer. But this was so interesting that I wanted to read each section. I learned so much even before setting foot in the soil and didn't struggle or feel bored by it. You feel like you are getting a private gardening lesson from an expert who really wants you to love it.

3. There are diagrams and photos, but not so many that you feel like it could be half the size and half the price. It's got a New Englander's practicality to the photo selection and each one has a purpose.

4. It includes very clear instructions and suggestions for EVERY step, from reading seed catalogs to building the raised beds to starting seeds to various methods for weeding or preventing pests... it is extremely thorough.

5. The section on each vegetable is not cursory or an afterthought. The author includes a detailed standard table of all the variables (sun, soil temp, ph, etc.) but also narrative specific to each one. When a vegetable is simple, it is given a page. More complicated vegetables, like asparagus, are given more including photos to illustrate specific techniques. It's not one size fits all!

6. The author provides a diagram for his full kitchen garden as well as a sample "beginner" garden. Sometimes you just want to someone to say "Here, do this." And have the option to adjust a bit but not have to figure it all out yourself. The rest of the book can be used to tweak that design or adjust in later years, but he provides a solid starting point.

HASH(0x93142330) étoiles sur 5 Black-Thumb Learned to Grow a Self-Sufficient Family Garden with this Book!! 16 octobre 2014
Par NtimesN - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I gotta tell ya... I have no idea what I'm doing. Let me start by saying how I came to find this book; I am a mother of two little boys and lost my mother to breast cancer at a young age. The food I buy at the grocery store, no matter how thoroughly I read the label I know will always have something I don't want in it. I put an exhausting amount of effort into thinking about the food my family eats but sometimes it's just so overwhelming, I give up and just order a pizza. Sounds off topic but that is how I landed on this book, I was exhausted and feeling like nothing I could ever buy would truly be a healthy option to feed my family and steer away from harmful cancer-causing chemicals in our food. So, I went to the internet to search for something to help my black-thumb and figure out how to provide the healthiest food for my family, without breaking the bank. Like I mentioned before I have no idea what I'm doing. I come from the school of thought that if I kill my flowers, I just run down to the store and buy new pretty flowers and throw away the old ones I killed and replace with new said flowers. Happy day. Well, that doesn't really work when you're trying to actually produce a harvest of some kind...

I have been reading this book for months and I started by dog-earing pages that were helpful... Don't do it. I soon realized I was dog-earing every single page. This book has helped me to understand every aspect of starting and maintaining a garden. My dad, who actually grew up on a farm, read some of my book when he came to visit and even he was very impressed. I mention this because I don't think this book is only for idiot-gardeners like myself. He read a lot of the recommendations and theories for wide-row and organic methods and he even learned from this book. I would highly recommend purchasing this book. Great photos, diagrams, illustrations, bullet-points, what to buy, what to reuse & recycle, incredible in-depth bios of vegetable plants (encyclopedia-style, more than you could ever want to know about a plant). The list really goes on and on. The pictures are so helpful!

This book showed me how to start with a 3x3 raised bed, non-permanent, producing vegetable & herb garden (which is great for me because we are in Southern California so any amount of land is tough to come by & we rent). It helped me to not feel overwhelmed or take on too much too soon in my first major gardening endeavor and now I am able to start feeding my family more and more healthy organic vegetables that I grow from seed. I don't even have to go to Whole Foods and spend 50% of our income on our veggie budget each month. I learned how to plan everything out, start my seeds indoors with soilless seed-starting mix, transplanting, soil temp, vertical gardening, composting and how to save my plants organically and relatively simply when something (be it bug, bird or disease) is trying to eat or kill all of my efforts.

In summation, I learned how to grow a self-sufficient garden for my family with this book and it will be my most trusted garden companion for years to come. So well written.
