the garden and into the pot.

flowers, excellent climber and fence covering, good fruit to eat but
they simply can't get along with each other.

middle ground with this plant.

•Cauliflower can be better tasting and just as white as store-bought if
you follow these tips.

gardeners. Here's how to get that flavour.

•Lettuce can be grown as started plants or direct sown - you decide but
I'm going with direct sowing.
•Muskmelon & Cantaloupe are heat lovers and if you follow the
instructions in the vegetable gardening guide article you'll have a lot
of fruit. This means you can invite me to have vanilla ice cream and
melons for dessert.
•Onions and all you need to get them grown are here.
•Parsnips are just like carrots to grow but aren't orange.
•Peas are wonderful thing; particularly edible podded peas that are
vine ripened and cool, shaded by the vines on a hot day in the garden.
A few of these pilfered on the way down the garden can make an
afternoon's work worthwhile.

flea beetles. No need to buff the wax job either. And Turnips are
sometimes upscaled and called Rutabaga.
•Watermelons are wonderful to grow if you pick the early varieties. But
don't spit the seeds at me! :-)
What They're Saying
I love your style of writing. Easy, knowledgeable but not condescending.
I agree with everything in the book. Great information about each vegetable. The information applies to the beginner gardener or the expert gardener.
-Mrs. Know It All of garden radio
What I love about your book....no nonsense, 'Doug Green' voice.....good grounded information offered from someone who has years of experience in the field.
-Fran Sorin author, garden tv host and garden designer
The book emphasizes common sense and adaptability, general in the first half and specific in the second, with useful details about cultivating a broad range of vegetables. He writes it all in a friendly, shoot-from-the-hip voice that covers all bases without drowning you in data. Again, this is the right style for me, who just wants a few reliable guidelines to follow, plus a fingertip resource when I need particulars about my vegetables of choice.
