We're putting in our first vegetable garden and are absolutely clueless about the process. We have several gardening books that assume there's at least a basic understanding of the gardening principles. We needed a basic book and got it with the Dummies book. For right now, for this first garden, this is the book we're using.

I bought this for my husband, who's just getting into vegetable gardening, and it's so helpful. The book tells how to prepare, plant, maintain and harvest all the vegetables we planted this year. Both of us are learning a lot, and we're now enjoying the fruits of our labor. It was the perfect gift for him; he tells others what a help it's been. And I'm learning a lot, too!

My 12 year old wants a vegetable garden. I HAVE NO CLUE. There are no green plants in my house. I have shrubs, not plants outside. This was perfect for me and we are looking forward to building the planter and planting a garden over spring break together

This book was very informative from how to read the labels on seed packets to how to best harvest and store your mature veggies. I would recommend this book to anyone who has never tried growing their own vegetables before.

Retired and started my first garden this year. My mistakes are glaringly clear reading this book. It seems like every sentence, no matter how seeming inconsquential, is important. Well organized, good advice from soil preparation to harvest for most anything you'd ever want to grow.
