When to start seeds for each type of crop? When is the crop ready for harvest, and how can you keep it safe from pests?

Tanya Denckla Cobb’s essential guide to growing a bountiful food garden includes detailed seed-starting, growing, and harvesting information for 62 vegetables, fruits, and herbs, a complete companion-planting guide, and organic pest-control handbook. The Backyard Homestead Guide to Growing Organic Food is a one-stop reference for all the key information food gardeners need to grow a healthy garden. In partnership with the Piedmont Master Gardeners.
