Praise for the First Edition:

“In every small town, there is a vegetable garden that people go out of the way to walk past. Smith is the guy who grew that garden.”
— Verlyn Klinkenborg, The New York Times Book Review

“An abundance of photographs . . . visually bolster the techniques described, while frequent subheads, sidebars, and information-packed photo captions make the layout user-friendly . . . [Smith’s] book is thorough and infused with practical wisdom and a dry Vermont humor that should endear him to readers.”
— Publishers Weekly

“Smith . . . clearly explains everything novice and experienced gardeners need to know to grow vegetables and herbs. . . . ”
— Library Journal

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
