You can grow and enjoy chile peppers, whether you live in the tropics or in colder northern climates. This guide tells you everything you need to know, including recommendations for which ones to grow and botanical descriptions of the most popular types. The authors are pepper experts and offer all of their tips and techniques for choosing good seed, starting your plants out right, and planting your garden with companion plants that are good to eat with peppers - such as tomatoes, onions, corn, basil, oregano, and garlic.
Easy step-by-step instructions, a list of seed sources, and a glossary of terms will help the gardening novice, and there are full details on harvesting the pods; drying and roasting peppers; and making festive ristras (hanging strands of red peppers). Whether you are an avid gardener or a chile pepper lover wanting to grow your favorites, The Pepper Garden will be your guide to successful pepper gardening.
Read information about the authorThe New York Times calls this author "The Pope of Peppers" and TV viewers recognize Dave DeWitt as the ever-affable chile pepper expert and organizer of Albuquerque's huge annual National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show. Dave is also the author of more than 40 food related books, including the best-selling "The Complete Chile Pepper Book," "The Southwest Table," and the forthcoming "Growing Medical Marijuana."
National TV appearances include "American Journal," Cable News Network, "The Today Show," "Home with Gary Collins," "Scientific American Frontiers," "Smart Solutions," and "CBS Sunday Morning." He has also been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, American Way, Smithsonian, and approximately 200 newspapers across the country.
Now, the world's authority on the Southwest's hottest food turns his attention to New Mexicos most compelling and legendary historical figures--the rag-tag group of Apache warriors led by an elderly gentleman set on avenging the death of Victorio--and those who pursued them, the officers and buffalo soldiers of the U.S. Army's Ninth Cavalry as told in Dave's novel "Avenging Victorio."
The people, the story and the settings are real; DeWitt poured through endless documentation in the form of military records, old photos, newspaper clippings, letters and other correspondence to piece together the facts. Then, drawing on his background as a university professor of composition and literature-- plus his almost uncanny grasp and sensibility of Apache customs, traditions, rituals (and humor) -- DeWitt has woven a fast-paced and engaging saga.
