Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida

We don't have the book yet,
but Melissa and I received our sample covers in the mail today. Yay!

Writing this book has been an educational process for both of us. We turned in our final draft last December and now more than a year later after experts gave us feedback, a copy editor did her magic, and building an index from the galleys, we are finally getting close. Publication date is March 12th.

We think our approach to vegetable gardening will be helpful to gardeners of all skill levels and with large or small gardening spaces. We have arranged the vegetables by family for a number of reasons, but mostly because it will help you in your crop rotations.


In addition the 116 color photos, we are fotunate to have Marjorie Shropshire's wonderful drawings throughout the book to illustrate various gardening methods and ideas for becoming a better gardener.


After the book is released, Melissa and I will be available for presentations about gardening organically and general ecosystem gardening. Melissa will cover south Florida and I will cover central and northern regions. Florida's a huge state, so having both of us working on this book from opposite ends of the state made it possible for us to cover the whole state.

Our events are listed on the Events Page.

We don't know how often we'll be posting to this blog, but if you have an issue you'd like to see discussed, let us know. Thanks for reading.

Happy Gardening,
