Canadian Edible Garden, The
Vegetables, Herbs, Fruits and Seeds
Canadian Edible Garden, The Cover
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 ecologically sustainable manner:

* 65 accounts of vegetables, herbs, fruits and seeds
* 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
* Starting, maintaining and harvesting an edible garden
* Propagation and winter care
* Solutions to common garden problems.
