The answers provided to Does anyone know of a somewhat comprehensive plant database available online? didn't prove to be much useful for someone that is getting into vegetable gardening. The USDA's database contains information more suitable for identification/taxonomic purposes.
The best online source I was able to find was Dave's Garden. But it still lacks information on things like diseases, and more.
So I'm asking again for a concise database or encyclopedia/reference-book that gives summarized information on how to grow vegetables only, with things like necessary soil nutrients, diseases that can affect each variety, etc. I wish there were like a Wikipedia but for vegetables only, with one page for each plant... easy to lookup. It hasn't to be online; a big good tome would be suitable too. Note that I'm not asking here for basic gardening information (example: how to water plants)... I'm actually asking for "profiles" of vegetables.
Probably, if I didn't find one such reference after searching online, then perhaps there isn't one.
