Step-By-Step Guide to Designing and Planting Your Own Vegetable Garden

By Jimmy Williams and Susan Heeger

Jimmy Williams pays homage to his family history in this inspiring step-by-step guide to designing and planting a backyard vegetable garden and growing one's own food. He learned all about vegetable gardening at the knee of his grandmother, a South Carolina native from a traditional Gullah community whose members were descendants of Caribbean slaves.

With this essential garden manual, home gardeners can learn how easy it is to:

  • Plan a garden, design and construct growing beds
  • Tend the crop without using harmful chemicals
  • Learn about the best time to harvest gorgeous vegetables
  • Cook a delicious feast using Jimmy's favorite family recipes

Novice and experienced gardeners and cooks will find unusual recipes for the garden (Jimmy's HayGround fertilizer blend) and the table too -- as tomatoes, corn and okra ripen, try pairing Indian Summer Succotash with a main dish of the Gullah-inspired beans-and-rice dish, Hoppin' John, or Vegetable-Rice-Stuffed Tomatoes. And don't forget the Sweet Potato Biscuits!

Softcover. 176 pages. Chronicle Books 2010.
