Vegetable Garden, The
Author(s) H. C. Harrison.
Here is a simple, direct, and comprehensive guide to planning, planting, and caring for a vegetable garden. The author guides you through the process of drawing up a detailed garden map, creating a planting schedule, choosing the best varieties (which he lists), obtaining seeds far in advance of the planting date, planting the garden in the right way with the right tools, adding organic matter and fertilizer to the soil, and controlling insects, weeds, and diseases. Included is a planting chart listing all the vegetables you are likely to want to plant, together with their planting times, ideal seed spacing, seed depths, days to the first harvest, and estimated yield per foot of row (20 pages; Revised in 2004).
