The ubiquitous For Dummies series, while not known for pretty illustrations or lush photography, does manage to pack the maximum amount of information into an easy-to-read format--something that gardeners with an eye on the financial bottom line love.

Charlie Nardozzi and the National Gardening Association editors want to make vegetable gardening fun and interesting, and there's a lot more than just the standard tomatoes and zucchini.

Bok choy, fingerling potatoes, kabocha squash, daikon radishes--they've included just about every vegetable you might be able to think of, with pithy recommendations of the tastiest and easiest-to-grow varieties.
