If you’re interested in growing your own fruits and vegetables, you’ve joined the blossoming ranks of DIY gardeners who place a premium on the idea of self-reliance. But like any other kind of gardening, growing edibles is not a one-size-fits-all pursuit: in order to be successful, you’ll need to know not only which plants grow well in your state or region, but also how to grow them with careful methods and a schedule that caters specifically to your local climate.

Fortunately, Southern Fruit & Vegetable Gardening is written exclusively for gardeners who want to grow edibles in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, or Tennessee. Author Katie Elzer-Peters, a master gardener with deep roots south of the Mason-Dixon line, equips you with all the information you need to design your edible garden, tend the soil, maintain your plants throughout their life cycles, and–most importantly–harvest the delicious foods they produce. So whether you live in the Ozarks, in the Delta, on the Cumberland Plateau, or anywhere else in the southern United States, you’ll discover the best fruit and vegetable plants for your garden in this beautiful guide…and they’ll be on your table before you know it!

This book includes:

*Planting, care, and harvesting information for more than 60 southern fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
*Popular selections, from arugula to tomatoes.
*A variety of additional common and unusual fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
*Advice on garden planning, creating the perfect soil, watering, and more!
