By C.L. Mershon on December 27, 2011
Format: Hardcover
In the modern Wikipedia and YouTube age it may seem somewhat archaic to own a book on gardening vegetables. The information available to us on the Web is abundant, useful and highly specialized on any area under the subject of gardening. Additionally, there is a myriad of forums in which a potential gardener can interact with people who are much more experienced. However, it is because of the sheer amount of information out here that it can, at times, be difficult or time consuming to wade through it all. That is where a book like this is very handy.

This book has several sections which are tips and tricks to making gardening easier or less time consuming however much of this can be found online in more abundance. However, it is the section entitled "Encyclopedia of Vegetables" that makes this book worth the money.

This section covers a huge range of vegetables and provides the essential information of reach. By essential I mean; planting cycles, ideal conditions, hazards and harvesting guidelines. Though all of this information is available on the web it can, at times be difficult to locate it quickly and efficiently.

Overall, I give this book 3 starts and recommend that you pick it up as a reference book if you are at the beginner or intermediate stage of your vegetable gardening.
