Food plants have their own ornamental value, adding harmony to existing landscapes without creating a separate vegetable garden. They also provide a fresh, healthy alternative to the tasteless and woody fruits and vegetables bred for long-distance transportation and shipped to our grocery stores from all over the world. In this book, we show how, with just a little effort, you can augment your landscape with edibles of every description in an ecologically sustainable manner:

* 65 accounts of vegetables, herbs, fruits and seeds

* Veggie favorites: tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, beans and onions

* Berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries

* The superhealthy: flax, broccoli, kale and garlic

* The oddly beautiful: Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, asparagus and artichokes

* The ancient and exotic: quinoa, amaranth and fennel

* Starting, maintaining and harvesting an edible garden

* Propagation and winter care

* Solutions to common garden problems.
