Gardeners can dig into a new publication, "Vegetable Gardening in the Midwest," now available from the Cooperative Extension Service. A complete and easy-to-use guide to successful growing of more than 40 vegetables and 35 herbs draws on years of research on growing conditions and vegetable varieties conducted at the many trial gardens at the UI. For each vegetable, authors Charles E. Voigt, vegetable specialist for the Cooperative Extension Service, and J.S. Vandemark, professor emeritus of horticulture, furnish details about varieties, planting, care and harvesting. The guide is available at a special introductory price of $10 (through Oct. 1) from the UI, 69NR Mumford Hall; 333-2007; or from your local Cooperative Extension Service office.
