Heavily illustrated in gorgeous color, the comprehensive text contains an extensive directory of traditional as well as rare and unusual vegetables. Each profile contains a listing of varieties, their cultivation, pests and diseases, companion plantings, and culinary uses. As growing your own produce becomes more popular, this book is most welcome, for it is certain to have the answers for almost any question relating to vegetables.
