Since The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible is so excellent, and I’m temporarily stuck in an apartment, I’ve been meaning to read this book to learn more about container gardening.

The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible Book Review

Disclosure: My parents received a copy of the original edition of The Vegetable Gardener's Bible, 2nd Edition: Discover Ed's High-Yield W-O-R-D System for All North American Gardening Regions: Wide Rows, Organic Methods, Raised Beds, Deep Soil free of charge due to an acquaintance in the author’s family.

My parents get a significant amount of their produce every year from their large organic vegetable garden, and they’ve been gardening for a combined total of something like 70 or 80 years, so they didn’t expect to learn much when they were given a free copy of this book and I wouldn’t say that they did. However, the information in the book is so clear, comprehensive, and well organized that it’s become one of their go-to reference books, and they gave me a copy when I moved out of the house and started a garden of my own. As a relative beginner (I helped with bed preparation, weeding, watering, and harvesting growing up, but not so much with planning, seed starting, or pest control), this book was absolutely indispensable.

If you are a beginning vegetable gardener, The Vegetable Gardener's Bible, 2nd Edition: Discover Ed's High-Yield W-O-R-D System for All North American Gardening Regions: Wide Rows, Organic Methods, Raised Beds, Deep Soil is the single best book I know of to get you started. Even if you don’t intend to follow organic methods exclusively, it will teach you a lot about how to prepare and plant your garden to reduce the labor and cost of fighting pests and weeds and build healthy soil (which in turn produces more nutritious vegetables). If you are already experienced, like my parents, maybe check it out from the library first to see what you think, and get it if you think it will be a good reference for you
