Advice changes just as fashions change. One thing I query is the oft trotted out gem - pick vegetables young and small. Well, I don't want a hulking great marrow, so ok about courgettes, but, really, broad beans! Who wants them tiny, wet and lacking in taste. Mine are big, floury and strongly flavoured. Ok, tough skinned and very few of them, unfortunately, but worth it. I can hear people muttering about young peas, but no. Don't want my vegetables sweet. That's pudding in my book!
