Home Library: Sunset Western Garden Book of Edibles

Sunset magazine has been publishing books since the 1930s, with titles ranging from home wiring to deck building, although the most consistently popular title since that time has been Sunset's Western Garden book. Now, an updated and expanded version of Sunset Western Garden Book of Edibles ($25) is available for those of us who are cultivating a green thumb and a beautiful backyard garden.

The new copy improves on the old favorite in many ways, including gorgeous full-color photos for every entry, from vegetables and herbs to nuts, tropicals, and fruits. All entries have been updated and now include such exotic edibles as jicama and breadfruit.

Over the course of 300 pages, you'll also discover new, eco ways to protect your garden from common pests and also find inspiration for designing the look of your garden. You'll also learn how to accomplish such practical tasks as building raised bed gardens, composting kitchen and garden scraps, and planting in containers.

So, if you're looking for practical advice on how to grow everything from strawberries to romanesco in your own backyard and you live in any region of the West, I highly recommend picking up a new copy of this must-have garden book. Whether you're a new gardener or an old pro, you'll find inspiration and new ideas in this updated edible gardening book.
