Plant, grow, and harvest the vegetables of a century ago—and serve them up with modern flair!

In The Heirloom Vegetable Garden, edible landscape guru Rosalind Creasy presents a beautifully illustrated guide to growing heirloom vegetables. Readers can learn the basics of planting, caring for, and preparing traditional favorites, including:
  • Saving and storing seeds from year-to-year
  • How to make everything from tomatoes and squash to kale and beans thrive
  • More than 25 recipes for soups, main dishes, and sides
Beautiful color photos and a tour of American heirloom gardens provide inspiration for aspiring gardeners. With a little bit of yard space and the right guidance, anyone can join the "garden-to-table" movement, and The Heirloom Vegetable Garden will be their go-to resource. With a new preface by Creasy, as well as updated recommendations, this book continues to be a trusted resource.
