Grow Your Own Vegetables
By Joy Larkcom
Why this book?
Joy Larkcom knows her vegetables, and how to grow them, like no other. She is a Brit, now living in Ireland, with deep experience. Her knowledge and wisdom applies to interested readers on both sides of the pond.
Grow your own Vegetables is the best how-to book on vegetable gardening bar none. I recommend it to beginning, intermediate, as well as advanced growers. As for myself, I do well to thumb through its pages on occasion for best practices and refresher courses – especially when it comes to, say, spacing requirements for cultivating some of the unfamiliar vegetable crops. Eighty different kinds of vegetables, from artichokes to turnips, are included. No expert is infallible including Joy; she recognizes that your experience is the best teacher.
