Celebrate National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month

Each month of the year is full of special holidays and both official and unofficial designations for celebration.

June is no exception, and we’ve already celebrated its status as Perennial Gardening Month, as well as the temporal home of Father’s Day, with special selections of books from our catalog.

June is also National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, so we’ve put together a list of books that will help you grow, cook, and preserve your favorites.

From the eternally useful and pungent garlic, to the piquant and imperiled chile pepper, to wondrously tasty weeds, and succulent squashes, we’ve got the book for you. All these titles are on sale for 25% off until June 24th.
