Gardeners, rejoice! You can now have all the gardening info you need right out in the garden on your mobile device. MOTHER EARTH NEWS is excited to announce our Food Gardening Guide resource, which provides detailed information on growing many major garden crops, including tomatoes, peppers, corn, onions, garlic, spinach, squash, melons, radishes, lettuce, potatoes, carrots and many more.

Simply tap on a crop, and find out all the essentials about growing it in your garden: how to plant, when to plant, how to prevent pests and diseases, types and varieties to try, how to save seeds from the crop, and more.
In addition to crop-specific advice, this resource also provides thorough information on several gardening techniques, including watering, crop rotation, garden fencing, cover crops, transplanting, improving your soil, vertical gardening and many more. Just tap on a category, and you’ll get all the info you need. For example, tap on “Wise Watering,” and get the breakdown on all things watering, including soaker hoses, harvesting rain water and mulching to retain water.
