Growing Perfect Vegetables – A visual guide to raising and harvesting prime garden produce. Paperback (rrp £11.99). New/unused. A slightly different take on the usual gardening books – this one focusses on harvesting and getting the moment just right for optimal taste/ripeness for home growers (there are also notes for those buying their produce at markets). Each vegetable has an at-a-glance guide for optimal sowing times and perfect harvesting times and notes on extending ripeness. A really useful adjunct to the more usual growing guides.
