    Howard covers the essentials of Basic Organic Gardening as well as the how to’s. I bought the book at Rohde’s for about the same price before shipping. If you can’t get to Garland; but it here. We just completed our 20′x20′ raised bed garden. Our front yard is the lushest greenest yard in the neighborhood with NO CHEMICALS. We have been a fan of Howard for a few years now.Grant Wiscour Irving, TX

    If you are intending to grow vegetables in Central Texas, you MUST buy this book! It is the only book out there that realistically tells you how (and WHEN) to grow vegetables in this, very difficult part of zone 8. ALmost tropical…and yet, so dry……and hot…..and such awful soil we have here! (Well, for the most part.)

    It has been THE most useful Gardening book in my collection for the last eight years, and though I buy many gardening books, no other book can begin to touch it (mainly because what they have to say just doesn’t relate to Central Texas!)

    This book has been indispensable to me!!! This book, along with The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible, have been my “text books” in starting a garden. Without them, I wouldn’t have such a great garden. These books take the guess work out of what to do. Thanks Mr. Garrett and Mr Beck!!!

    I have checked out many Howard Garrett books from the library and had to buy several for myself and for gifts. The photos are beautiful, and he tells you what he thinks of the different species. Howard Garrett writes great books for people wanting to establish beautiful landscapes and gardens. He explains why healthy, organic soil with native plants and bugs works really well if it is done right.

    My only complaint with most of his books is that he lists the specimens in alphabetical order. That is what indexes are for. If he would group them with similar specimens, then between the photos and his descriptions, the books would be great for identifying species I find on my property. As it is, I have to get a separate field guide to tell me the names to look up in his books; but, I am willing to do that.

    Texas Organic Vegetable Gardening covers much more than just vegetables. It also includes fruits, nuts, and herbs; with lists of recommended varieties for different regions. And it includes preparing the soil, planting dates, troubleshooting, and recipes for homemade pesticides.

    I loved this book. It was very easy to read and organized in a way that was so helpful. I thought it was to late to plant this season but after reading this book I was able to sit down and pick all the fruits and vegetables that would grow well in our area and chosen season and plan a large scale garden. I felt much more prepared! Highly recommend this book for experienced and beginner alike!
