The objective has been to plan to produce fresh food to eat and build in the correct storing for everything so that nothing goes to waste. The book points up varieties that have proved themselves to have the best qualities for storing surplus. The book explains that waste is most often caused by growing too much at the wrong time. It lays plans to resolve this issue, to co-operate with other gardeners to dovetail activities, swap produce and store for the winter. It is a complete source - vegetable by vegetable, fruit by fruit.
