-Step Vegetable Gardening is a good choice for the beginning gardener. Experienced gardeners will appreciate the quick and easy reference style when help with a specific fruit or vegetable is needed. Lots of photographs, large typeface and a simple one-two-three style of instruction for most fruits and vegetables make this book a useful garden tool.
