Hundreds of publications and fact sheets are available online and through local K-State Research and Extension offices and this time of year, the perennial favorite is the Kansas Garden Guide, which takes the reader from planning to planting and harvesting a vegetable garden, plus information about composting, container gardening, raised beds, watering, recommended tools and more.

Other favorites this time of year are:

For growers who are not only putting food on their own tables but selling at farmers’ markets, Food Safety for Kansas Farmers Market Vendors is available.

A new publication added to the K-State bookstore this spring is Conifer Trees for Kansas: A Guide to Landscape Evergreens.
