        First published in 1997, Heirloom Vegetable Gardening: A Master Gardener's Guide to Planting, Seed Saving and Cultural History has been out of print, and MOTHER EARTH NEWS is proud to present the original text, together with 100 color photos in this e-book edition.

        This remarkable e-book is the bible for gardeners who choose to explore the fabulous flavors, fascinating history and astonishing diversity of vegetables. Food historian William Woys Weaver profiles 280 heirloom varieties, providing recipes, growing advice and authoritative history. The fruit of his labor is a terrific reference for the kitchen gardener, the cook, the historian, and anyone who might wonder what our ancestors were up to when they sat down to eat. Weaver also raises the questions of where our food is headed and what we, as individuals, can do.

        Weaver traces the development of the seed-saving movement and gives a list of commercial seed and plant stock sources. Heirloom Vegetable Gardening covers everything from artichokes and cardoons to potatoes and tomatoes. Read about the Golden Ball carrot, which was developed for cold frames in the 19th century. Learn the rich history of lettuces still around today such as the Brown Dutch or White-Seeded Simpson. Discover how to plant, grow and harvest crosnes (or Vegetable White Bait as it was once called).

        Want to grow the famous Moon and Stars watermelon? Want to make a Parsnip Pie? Want to learn how to preserve the treasure that is heirloom seeds? This is the e-book that will tell you how!

        Across North America, an agricultural renaissance is unfolding. A growing number of market gardeners are emerging to feed our appetite for organic, regional produce. At the same time, most books and resources about food production aim at the backyard and hobby gardener, who simply want to supplement their family's diet with a few homegrown fruits and vegetables. Targeted at serious growers in every climate zone, Sustainable Market Farming acts as a comprehensive manual for small-scale farmers raising organic crops sustainably on a few acres.

        Informed by the author's extensive experience growing a wide variety of fresh, organic vegetables and fruit to feed the approximately 100 members of Twin Oaks Community in central Virginia, this practical guide provides:

        • Detailed profiles of a full range of crops, addressing sowing, cultivation, rotation, succession, common pests and diseases, harvest and storage
        • Information about new and efficient techniques, season extension, and disease-resistant varieties
        • Farm-specific business skills to help ensure a successful, profitable enterprise
        Whether you are a beginning market grower or an established enterprise seeking to improve your skills, Sustainable Market Farming is an invaluable resource and a timely book for the maturing local agriculture movement.

        Gardeners, like everyone, are too short on time and money to waste either on plants that only look good for a few weeks. You want hardworking, eye-catching plants that provide beauty for multiple seasons.

        You want powerhouse plants - plants with colorful spring flowers and summer fruits, or summer fruits and fall foliage, or summer flowers, fall foliage and winter stems ... or any combination of two or more of these desirable features. Like flowering dogwood that boasts summer flowers and fall fruit and foliage. Or honeysuckle that has fragrant spring flowers, summer and fall foliage, and fall fruit.

        Powerhouse Plants by Graham Rice features multiseasonal perennials, annuals, groundcovers, vines, shrubs and trees. Profiles include basic plant information, such as size, hardiness and preferred growing conditions.

        With this indispensable guide in hand, you can leave the slacker plants behind and get the most from your money and landscape.

        Typically, vegetable gardening is about the long view: Peas sown in spring aren't harvested until summer, and tomatoes started indoors in February can't be eaten until July. But it's not true for all plants. Some things can be planted and eaten in weeks, days, even hours.

        The Speedy Vegetable Garden highlights more than 50 quick crops, with complete information on how to sow, grow and harvest each plant. Sumptuous photography provides inspiration and a visual guide for when to harvest. In addition to instructions for growing, this essential guide also provides recipes that highlight each crop's unique flavor, such as chickpea-sprout hummus, stuffed tempura zucchini flowers, and a paella featuring calendula.

        Sprouted seeds are the fastest. Microgreens can be harvested in weeks: cilantro, 14 days after planting; arugula and fennel in 10 days. And a handful of vegetable varieties grow more quickly than their slower relatives, like dwarf French beans (60 days), cherry tomatoes (65 days), and early potatoes (75 days).

        The Speedy Vegetable Garden puts fresh, seed-to-table food at your fingertips, fast!
