eLetter: How to Start a Vegetable Garden

The best info on growing your own food

Thanks to rising food prices, the recession, organic health concerns, and increasingly frequent supermarket produce scares (tomatoes, spinach, and jalapeños, to name a few), it’s no surprise that vegetable gardening is experiencing a surge in popularity. And homegrown veggies taste better than anything you can get in a supermarket. That’s why we’re excited to introduce, a new site from the editors of Fine Gardening.  Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just getting started, our new site brings you excellent advice on:
• Planning and design
• Selecting the best heirloom and hybrid vegetables to plant
• Harvesting, preserving, and cooking what you grow
