Description
Illustrated with 160 color photos and 130 drawings, this encyclopedic growing guide from the authors of A Small Farm in Maine is based on three decades of gardening experience at Hedgehog Hill Farm. Terry and Mark Silber explain how to search for the right seeds and plants, evaluate soils and break up top growth, and set out seeds and plants, as well as the fine points of weeding, watering, and fertilizing. Detailed instructions are given for growing 37 vegetables and 51 herbs, from asparagus to turnips, angelica to woad. Sidebars offer guidance on growing hot peppers, planting mesclun, making sauerkraut, braiding onions, blanching cauliflower, growing moth-repellent herbs, and crystallizing flowers.

"An abundance of detailed, specific information explains the basics of garden planning (including a look at the explosion of horticultural information on the Internet and how best to choose among all the glossy seed and plant catalogues), propagation, transplanting and the cultivation and care of both new and mature gardens. Committed seed savers, the authors advocate a 'raised-bed total-mulch program,' which involves preserving heirloom varieties and creating a thriving garden by planting in wide, raised rows protected by weed-suppressing mulch. Comprehensive chapters on cultivating both vegetables and herbs cover everything from asparagus to tomatoes and angelica to wormwood, and include an eclectic assortment of recipes (salsa, homemade sauerkraut, herb tempura) and tips on preserving root vegetables and drying herbs."—Publishers Weekly
