Tired of genetically modified food? More and more people want to live healthily, organically, and without pesticides. Anyone can start a garden, whether in a backyard or on a city rooftop, but what they need to truly succeed is The Heirloom Life Gardener, a comprehensive guide to cultivating heirloom vegetables.  In this invaluable resource, Jere Gettle, founder of the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, offers his wealth of knowledge to every kind of gardener—experienced pros and novices alike. In his friendly voice, complemented by gorgeous photographs, he gives planting, growing, harvesting, and seed saving tips on amazing heirloom varieties that many people have never seen.  Gettle provides detailed instructions on canning and preserving, and his wife Emilee will share many recipes. Fifty heirloom vegetables are detailed, ranging from asparagus to watermelon. This is more than just a gardening book, it’s a way of life that is perfectly suited for the growing numbers of people who long for real food, produced within their backyards, and a truer way of living.
