Inhaltsangabe: What is it like to grow your own food?

Do you want to start a vegetable garden, but you're not sure what you're in for? Or maybe you already have a few vegetable gardening years under your belt, and you're looking for someone who understands you?

Either way, you've come to the right place.

In this collection of humorous essays, I share all the dirty details of my relationship with my vegetable garden:

  • Why I fell in love with Rutabaga
  • How I made a fool out of myself with a Chinese cabbage
  • How I have disrespected and misused all of radish-kind
  • How Potato and I almost split up over a lifestyle disagreement
  • Why Scarlet (runner bean) and I have failed to ever conceive a bean
And more!

But my confessions are good for more than just a laugh. Everything that I've learned about growing potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, squash, onions, peppers, radishes, kale, Chinese cabbages, and more is in this book.

Learn:
  • What is a short season tomato?
  • What are the easiest vegetables to grow?
  • What does it mean if your onions are flowering?
  • What is eating our vegetable plants?
  • Where are the seeds on kale?
  • What is kohlrabi and why should you care?
  • How do you cook a turnip?
  • How do you kill a potato beetle?
  • What the heck is a potato beetle anyway, and how do you know if you've got them?
  • Why should you grow zucchini when you've never bought it before in your life?
If you want to know more, check out the Confessions of a Vegetable Lover book trailer video on my author page (click on "visit Amazon's S.M.R. Saia page")!

Vom Autor: In the garden, everything is an experiment.

There are a lot of awesome books out there filled with everything you need to know to start a vegetable garden from scratch, or to solve any problem you might encounter in an established garden. If you're looking for a good reference book, I highly recommend anything published by Storey or Rodale. But if you want to start a garden and want some idea of what you're getting yourself into, or if you're looking to commiserate with a fellow gardener over the kinds of problems only we veggie garden lovers understand, then I hope you will enjoy my "confessions". They're a record of the problems I encountered, the mistakes I made, and the solutions I devised - one vegetable, one bug, and one incident at a time - with plenty of angst and laughter along the way.

My motto: Stick a seed in the ground and see what happens.

I began gardening in 2007 as an alternative to hoarding number ten cans of freeze-dried food in my cellar. From mid-spring until late fall, I eat produce primarily from my own garden. I prefer vegetables that grow like weeds, and weeds that can't outpace them. My yields are always less than I hope that they will be, but once I did grow a sweet potato the size of a football.

If you're still not sure whether or not my Confessions of a Vegetable Lover is for you, visit my author page (click on "visit Amazon's S.M.R. Saia page) and check out my book trailer, in which I reveal whether or not the legs on the cover of the book are really mine.

This book contains all the essays originally published in two volumes as Confessions of a Vegetable Lover and More Confessions of a Vegetable Lover.
