Homegrown Harvest is filled with beautiful color photos. It will inspire you to tear up the lawn in your backyard and plant a garden. It features a large array of vegetables and fruits from the common to the exotic. The description of espalier fruit trees is particulary neat.
The book is divided into four parts: spring, summer, fall, and winter, and each season is then subdivided into early, mid, and late. There are handy reference charts at the back as well as a glossary and an index.

This is a thorough and well-illustrated book, reminiscent of my personal favorite garden guide, Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening. Sound, simple advice is arranged seasonally (seed starting is listed under “early spring” and root vegetable storage under “late fall”, etc.). If you don't already have a comprehensive vegetable gardening guide this would be an excellent choice for beginner and enthusiast alike.

I would recommend only if you are going to engage in some heavy duty gardening, and I don't think it's good for a reference source, but if you are going to get heavily involved with trellising and raised beds and soil testing, this is your book.

Great layout with action steps for each plant, each season. Might need to own this one. Also has many of the more unusual fruits.
