A comprehensive guide to the common and available heirlooms available on the market today. Each section is broken up into families (legumes, summer squashes, etc.) and includes 5-10 varieties of heirlooms. For each vegetable and fruit, there is seed information, tips on planting/transplanting, and harvest information. In descriptions she gives some preservation tips (drying beans, basic cooking/canning). Additional information at the end includes seed saving techniques, commercial heirloom nurseries, and a suggested bibliography.
