MIDWEST FRUIT & VEGETABLE GARDENING

If you're interested in growing your own fruits and vegetables, you've joined the ranks of a blossoming group 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: 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 microclimate. Fortunately for you, Midwest Fruit & Vegetable Gardening is written exclusively for gardeners who want to grow edibles in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota or Wisconsin. Author Katie Elzer-Peters, the master gardener responsible for the best-selling Beginner's Illustrated Guide to Gardening, 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 Badlands, the Dells, the Quad Cities, or anywhere else in the Midwestern United States, you'll discover the best fruit and vegetable plants for your garden in this beautiful step-by-step how-to guide ... and they'll be on your table before you know it.

In addition to mouthwatering dishes, Seaver gives the nitty-gritty on fueling your fire; preparation and cooking; recipes for sauces, spice mixes and marinades; and ways to eat smartly and healthily.
