Square Foot Gardening is the most popular alternate gardening method in the world, and this new title is a terrific addition to the SFG family. Growing Perfect Vegetables gets to the root of what every gardener wants: perfect produce, and lots of it.

Whether you grow in a Square Foot Garden, a straw bale garden, containers, or a traditional garden plot, you'll be happy to have this helpful garden book so you can approach harvest time with confidence, not apprehension. Because even the most experienced homegrowers get a little nervous when harvest time comes around.

In Square Foot Gardening: Growing Perfect Vegetables, you’ll find hundreds of beautiful photos that show you exactly how produce should look when perfectly ripe, and ready for picking and buying. It even includes some tips and clues to help you interpret what your plants are trying to tell you about the fruit they are bearing.

Written under the direction of The Mel Bartholomew Foundation, named for the inventor of Square Foot Gardening, this handy book provides crucial information, including optimal planting and harvesting times for more than 60 fruits and vegetables, along with the many high resolution photos of perfectly ripe produce.
