As more and more families focus on local and organic eating, this delightful introduction to common vegetables offers a delectable serving of uncommonly beautiful illustrations and fascinating information. As in his hugely popular previous book, "Flower Power," Olaf Hajek’s wondrously imaginative and detailed portraits are paired with engaging and eye-opening texts. The book shows how each vegetable appears in its natural soil habitat, and how it might be eaten today.

From the first spring onion, to pumpkins harvested just before the frost, this inviting journey through the growing season celebrates the artistic, historical, and culinary bounty that awaits us in the garden and at the table.
