Set your climate zone - pick the vegetable you want to know some information about and then read all the information here about it. Most of the information you need is here - when to plant, how long to grow it, when to harvest. Read it and read it again and again until you understand it. Then read the last 20-30 comments here about that vegetable. It's pretty simple stuff and remember it is only a guide. Like they recommend planting a lot of vegetables now in January - I don't plant anything in Jan - Feb (in sub-tropical Aus) because it is too hot, windy and the chance of huge amounts of rain. Better to leave it until March/April. If you need more info GOOGLE IT.
