Sometimes the best gardening advice comes in tidbits shared over the fence by a sage neighbor. In Vegetable Gardening Wisdom, master gardener Kelly Smith Trimble shares her tried-and-true ideas and guidance for succeeding at and enjoying every aspect of herb and vegetable gardening. This lively, beautifully designed package makes a perfect gift and a source of daily inspiration, as Trimble invites readers to dip in regularly for bite-sized pieces of information on everything from gardening itself to cooking and preserving, creative ways to use the harvest, and ideas for reducing garden and kitchen waste. Discover the best herbs to grow indoors, the best way to start peas, how to use lettuce as a living mulch in the garden, how to make compost tea, how to identify beneficial bugs, how to blanch cauliflower, and much more. Woven in among Trimble's tips are helpful and inspiring quotes from other plant-loving folks, including novelist Jamaica Kincaid, vegetable gardening guru Ed Smith, and renowned chef Sean Brock.
