"Jim Stephens knows his vegetables. Follow his advice and you will have a successful, fruitful, pest-free garden—whether it is in a pot on your deck or a quarter-acre out back."—Marina Blomberg, garden editor, Gainesville Sun With full-color photographs and detailed expert advice, this affordable paperback describes how to grow abundant vegetables and edible herbs in gardens anywhere in Florida.

Combining his personal background with decades of experience as Florida Cooperative Extension Service vegetable specialist, Stephens explains · types of gardens (including hydroponic and organic), · site selection, · vegetable variety selection, · garden establishment and care, · soil fertilization and management, · climatic implications, · cultivation practices, and · harvesting and storing. He also addresses the challenge of pests and diseases and includes a detailed and illustrated description of all the major and minor crops usually grown in Florida.

His guide will be indispensable to county agents, school teachers, garden writers, and anyone who enjoys a juicy, homegrown tomato. James M.
