In each of our ultimate vegetable guides you'll find information about the focus vegetable or fruit, including varieties and types, and information on how to grow them and how to harvest. In order to qualify for the "ultimate" title, each guide also includes links to preservation tips and techniques and a large variety of both cooking and preserving recipes.
My goal with these guides is to not provide all the information out there (I'm not sure that is even possible for most of them!), but to cull through the huge amount of information we have at our fingertips and give you a resource of the most useful growing and harvesting information to help you actually grow your own produce if you want, as well as the best recipes to give you lots of options for preserving, storing and cooking the harvest. If you are a part of a CSA or regularly visit farmer's markets and want to know how to cook and preserve the season's bounty, then the preservation and recipe links found in each guide will provide you with a wealth of options, no matter your skill level.
The guides take a ton of time to research and prepare, since I want to provide the best information for you, but I will be adding to them regularly as I can - so check back often!
