I've been referring to your latest book, Northeast Fruit and Vegetable Gardening, to develop a new vegetable garden (spot that's never been planted before) and it's been a huge help. I especially like the way you divided it into main ideas, tips, etc. in the first half and then the specific vegetables in the second half. I have a lot of gardening books but yours has been my 'go to' book.

For vegetable gardeners, the right information is especially important, because if you don't end up with edible food on the table, you've failed. Charlie Nardozzi and the National Gardening Association editors seem comfortingly aware of this fact, but they also want to make vegetable gardening fun and interesting, and to that end there's a lot more here than just the standard tomatoes and zucchini. Bok choy, fingerling potatoes, kabocha squash, daikon radishes--they've included just about every vegetable you might be able to think of, with pithy recommendations of the tastiest and easiest-to-grow varieties.
