Oh they make it sound so simple. And I'm loving it. Double dig a ditch! Why I'll do that during my lunch hour! It sounds so quick and easy! Actually I am awaiting until my neighbors leave on the first to go to Phoenix for a month so there is no witness to the fool I am sure to make of myself getting my garden started.
A great overview of the techniques and issues involved in organic gardening. Like everything it takes thought and preparation as well as some experimentation. The book does not go too deeply into any one subject but gives you enough to get started without missing anything major. Shocker for me is that mowing the lawn often is actually better for it. Now I have no excuse not to do it.
Super thorough. Covers everything from how to start vege, fruit and flora and fauna seeds maintenance to natural pesticides to plant viruses. It ha a wonderful calendar of care and the back of a book is a huge glossary of fruits and veges with everything you need to know for their keeping and care. There are even directions of how to build different types of greenhouses!
