Reader's note

A fantastic first edition of The Observer's Book of Vegetables by Allan A. Jackson, published in 1977! The old enthusiasm for the kitchen garden has revived and home gardeners now demand a wide range of food plants. This concisely written book will five any prospective gardener an idea of the food crops available, and loosely classified as vegetables: leafy crops, roots, tubers, fruits or stems. There is emphasis on valuable plants such as sea kale which have fallen into disuse, and those long important on the continent - chicory, corn salad and globe artichoke. An introductory section deals with the soil, cultivation, manuring, weed control and planning. This is followed by sections on the various crops, in alphabetical order, in which techniques of production are described in detail.
