There is a fantastic array of vegetables you can grow in your garden, and not all of them are annuals. In Perennial Vegetables the adventurous gardener will find information, tips, and sound advice on less common edibles that will make any garden a perpetual, low-maintenance source of food. Imagine growing vegetables that require just about the same amount of care as the flowers in your perennial beds and borders—no annual tilling and potting and planting. They thrive and produce abundant and nutritious crops throughout the season. It sounds too good to be true, but in Perennial Vegetables author and plant specialist Eric Toensmeier (Edible Forest Gardens) introduces gardeners to a world of little-known and wholly underappreciated plants. Ranging beyond the usual suspects (asparagus, rhubarb, and artichoke) to include such "minor" crops as ground cherry and ramps (both of which have found their way onto exclusive restaurant menus) and the much sought after, anti-oxidant-rich wolfberry (also known as goji berries), Toensmeier explains how to raise, tend, harvest, and cook with plants that yield great crops and satisfaction. Perennial vegetables are perfect as part of an edible landscape plan or permaculture garden. Profiling more than 100 species, illustrated with dozens of color photographs and illustrations, and filled with valuable growing tips, recipes, and resources, Perennial Vegetables is a groundbreaking and ground-healing book that will open the eyes of gardeners everywhere to the exciting world of edible perennials.

Perennial Vegetables: Learn About 20 Vegetables and Fruits to Harvest Forever We all wish that we could find a way to make gardening just a little bit easier. Gardening can take up so much time during the spring when we design and decide what plants we want to put in our gardens. It can take hours and hours of work, planning, going to the nursery, picking out plants, prepping the garden soil and then planting the actual plants in your garden. Perennials can solve all of that work. Instead of planting your garden over and over again every year, you only have to do that planting one time and then you only have to do a little work at the beginning of the season to bring them back. You also save money on the cost of plants. Ultimately, you do yourself so many favors by planting perennials. They are easy to maintain and cost effective. Usually people feel like there are not very many options for gardeners when it comes to perennials, when in reality there are far more than you would ever imagine. Look inside the book to see all of the following information: What exactly is a perennial? What are all the advantages to planting perennials over annuals? 10 vegetable perennial plants to grow in your home garden 10 fruit perennials to grow in your home garden Tips to growing perennials successfully Other perennials to consider growing in your garden Download your E book "Perennial Vegetables: Learn About 20 Vegetables and Fruits to Harvest Forever" by scrolling up and clicking "Buy Now with 1-Click" button!
