The definitive organic vegetable gardening book, an essential reference for all gardeners committed to a natural, healthy and safe approach.

Practical, beautiful and an invaluable gardening reference, Organic Kitchen Garden shows you how to grow your own food and discover the taste of really fresh fruit and vegetables, and more. The book explains how to set up your vegetable patch, how to prepare the soil, choose and care for your crops and stagger your harvest across the seasons.

Written for the English gardener some of the advice is not relevant to our colder climate. Nonetheless, cultural practices and suggestions have some use.
