Crockett's Victory Garden

From the front flap of this 326 page book: "Written in answer to literally thousand of viewer requests, [this book] is a month-by-month guide to gardening that is as enjoyable and rewarding, and most of all, as easy to understand as the program itself. Jim Crockett has specially organized his book to follow the gardener's year (March through February) so that readers can pick up this cycle of season at any time and proceeds from there. Whenever you get around to planting your garden, this book will tell you what you can still plant and expect to harvest before the season ends. Every chapter contains a general introduction to the month and the basic tasks involved, a checklist of things to do, a Feature of the Month, alphabetically arranged entries for individual crops describing how each should be tended that month, and the most helpful questions and answers from the television show. Ample directions are provided for growing not only the most flavorful - and money saving! - fresh vegetables, but also flowers, herbs, fruit trees, lawns and houseplants. Informational, anecdotal, and above all, practical, this book unites Jim Crockett's philosophy and basic procedures for gardening with 200 full-color photographs from the Victory Garden. In addition there are 100 black and white diagrams, an index, and a glossary of gardening terms and products. The book features a special preface by the show's producer/director, Russell Morash, describing how this enormously popular series came into being and how a 75 x 75-foot plot that was once a town dump and later a parking lot evolved into television's most naturally productive patch of real estate, the Victory Garden."
