Food plants have their own ornamental value, adding harmony to existing landscapes without creating a separate vegetable garden. They also provide a fresh, healthy alternative to the tasteless and woody fruits and vegetables bred for long-distance transportation and shipped to our grocery stores from all over the world. In this book, we show how, with just a little effort, you can augment your landscape with edibles of every description in an environmentally sustainable manner: * Veggie favorites: tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, beans and onions * Berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries * The superhealthy: flax, broccoli, kale and garlic * The oddly beautiful: Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, asparagus and artichokes * The ancient and exotic: quinoa, amaranth and fennel * Plus starting, maintaining and harvesting an edible garden * Propagation and winter care * Solutions to common garden problems.

Many gardeners throughout the Midwest have a plot of land or a few containers into which they toss a few seeds every spring and later in the early summer enjoy some fresh lettuce, tomatoes, onions and herbs. For other people, the vegetable garden occupies their thoughts year-round, from planning and propagating to digging and hoeing and then harvesting, preserving and enjoying, only to start the cycle the following year. This handy book features 65 accounts of vegetables, herbs, fruits and seeds that gardeners commonly grow each year. The accounts include planting and growing tips, as well as recommended species and dealing with pests and problems.
