Prepare to encounter new varieties of common plant species, learn their history and benefits, and, most of all, identify fascinating new edibles to grow in your own gardens. Written by gardening expert Matt Mattus, Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening offers a wealth of new and exciting opportunities, alongside beautiful photography, lore, insight, and humor that can only come from someone who has grown each vegetable himself and truly loves gardening. More than 200 varieties of vegetables and herbs from the 50 most popular groups are featured in hands-on profiles that tell you how, where, and why to grow each one.

In truth, there are nearly a dozen varieties of artichoke that are suitable for home growing in just about any climate, and each has its own unique benefits and characteristics. In Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening, you will find 10 types of artichoke described in through, loving detail—along with helpful tips on where and how to acquire seeds for each. And artichokes are just one item in this field-tested garden basket.

If you are one of the more than 800,000 folks per year who has begun growing vegetables at home, Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening is the reference you need to pursue this rewarding activity to a whole new level of excellence, satisfaction, and success.

Nowadays, eating vegetables is essential for our health. Now, imagine growing your vegetables! The question now is, where to start? Most vegetables are acceptable to be sown directly into the ground. A couple of days before you should plant the seeds, you water the area you intend to plant. The rule of thumb is that the soil should be damp, not soggy. If the sources you have bought are on seed tapes (these are spaced correctly for sprouting on a biodegradable video), there is no need to space out the seeds manually; plant the seed tapes. Great Idea! Primarily, it would help if you found an appropriate place where you can grow your vegetables. It is suggested that we plant our vegetable garden on the balcony of our house or a small backyard. If that space is unavailable for you, try looking at the community garden near your home. Second, prepare the soil so that it will be soft and comfortable to dig. Water the soil until it becomes very wet and keep watering until the ground can support itself for a few days without watering. In this book, I will give you simple steps on how to raise your vegetables. This book covers: Preparation of Working Land with Lots of Water Points Planning Cultivation of Soil Seeding What Plants We Want to Grow Fertilization of Soil Following Growth Pest Control Disease Control Watering And much more! If you get seedlings that are not in an individual-contained area, you will need to separate them. Be very tender when you do this as you do not want to break the fine roots on them but, at the same time, work quickly because of the root shock issue. Place the plants in the prepared earlier holes and gently water them and apply organic liquid fertilizer. Ensure you keep the water up to them for a couple of days by watering every day before you start spacing out the water to every two or three days. The plants need to establish themselves in their new home and get over any shock they may have endured. So, let's get started! Grab a copy and learn more
