Book Preface

This book is a revised and expanded version of the 2000 edition of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible; it exists in large part because of the help I received creating that earlier edition. Thank you again, Maggie Lydic, Deborah E. Burns, Gwen W. Steege, Giles Prett, Charles W. G. Smith, Lindsey and Nathaniel, and, most important, Sylvia Ferry Smith. This time around, I’ve had the help of a fine editor, Carleen Madigan, and art director Jessica Armstrong. Once again, Sylvia Ferry Smith has created the garden and recreated it in photographic images; this book would not exist were it not for her gardening skill and artist’s eye. Thanks, too, to gardening friends who shared ideas and/or let us photograph their gardens: Susan Carpenter, David Carpenter, Lee Blackwell, Ruth Richards, Ann Miller, Richard Wiswall, Henry Homeyer, Shane Smith, and Christy Aucoin.
