Popular Gardening®: Vegetable Gardens, Spring Edition™
As winter gives way to spring, the sunshine returns and the days grow warmer, heating the soil in your garden to a temperature that’s ideal for planting. Crisp peppers, juicy tomatoes, refreshing cucumbers, flavorful thyme … all can become a homegrown reality. Whether you’re a gardening greenhorn or a planting pro, this revised edition of Vegetable Gardens, which focuses on the spring growing season, provides an excellent starting point for planning and maintaining your herb and vegetable garden.
Popular Gardening®: Tasty Tomatoes™
Eat your vegetables—and your tomatoes! This command might lack the gravitas of a simpler phrase like “eat your veggies,” but it’s technically more accurate. The edible part of the tomato plant is, in fact, a fruit—the ovary of a flowering plant, which distinguishes it from a vegetable, typically the leaf, stem or root of a plan. We appreciate the tomato for qualities such as its tasty flavor, health benefits and beauty in and out of the garden—all of which are explained and embraced in Tasty Tomatoes, the fifth installment of the Popular Gardening Series.
