"I have never before received such prompt service when ordering any item from a company. I placed my order late in the afternoon and had exactly what I ordered in my mailbox less than 48 hours later. It was a pleasure doing business with you." — Sue Belair, WI

An invaluable resource for home food gardeners!
Ed Smith's W-O-R-D system (Wide rows, Organic methods, Raised beds, Deep soil) has helped countless gardeners grow an abundance of vegetables and herbs. And those tomatoes, zucchini, basil and cucumbers have nourished countless families, neighbors, and friends with delicious, fresh produce. The Vegetable Gardener's Bible is essential reading for locavores in every corner of North America!
Everything you loved about the first edition of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible is still here: friendly, accessible language; full-color photography; comprehensive vegetable specific information in the A-to-Z section; ahead-of-its-time commitment to organic methods; and much more.
Now, Ed Smith is back with a 10th Anniversary Edition for the next generation of vegetable gardeners. New to this edition is coverage of 15 additional vegetables, including an expanded section on salad greens and more European and Asian vegetables. Readers will also find growing information on more fruits and herbs, new cultivar photographs in many vegetable entries, and a much-requested section on extending the season into the winter months. No matter how cold the climate, growers can bring herbs indoors and keep hardy greens alive in cold frames or hoop houses.
For more than 30 years Edward Smith and his wife, Sylvia, have lived off the grid in Vermont, in a house they built on land they cleared by hand. Together, they grow more than 100 varieties of vegetables, fruits, and herbs in their 2,000 square feet of gardens and containers.
“I can't believe how fast my order came! I thought about ordering from Amazon for two-day shipping but went with Pleasant Hill instead because I've always had great service. Pleasant Hill's prices were better than Amazon for the items I ordered, and it came just as fast.”
– Barb Waldorf, CO
