My new book is out, just in time to plan this year’s vegetable garden. It’s got the easy to remember title – The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening in the Northeast (Timber Press, 2014) and it lays out what you can and can’t do in the garden every month of the year. Softcover, 232 pages.
There are also editions for the Northwest, Southeast and Mountain States, with more to come.
The writing here is as crisp as the layout, which uses colored page edges and a simple, slightly-New Englandy sense of style to get its point across. Best of all, it’s hard to think of anything NOT covered here… and yet there’s no sense of the text book in these pages, and only that homey feel one gets while actually gardening.

And don’t forget my very first book – “The Beginner’s Guide to Heirloom Vegetables – The 100 Easiest-to-Grow, Tastiest Vegetable for Your Garden” (Timber Press, 2011). I talk about a few hundred of my very favorite vegetables (what can I say, I like vegetables), flavors, growing tips, seed saving advice and heirloom stories. Softcover, 288 pages.
This is sure to inspire: gorgeous photography, savvy growing instructions, and enlightening stories that will keep and gardener reading late into the night.

Based on my popular talk, I’ll talk you on a virtual tour of about 30 of New York’s Hudson River Valley public gardens. This is where American garden design took form and there are still great examples to inspire and delight you. Print version coming soon.
