Going to have an awesome garden next summer ;)
if you don't know anything about gardening (like me!), then this is the book for you. very basic, easy to understand. there were many useful tips on keeping my babies alive and it also gave lots of references to other books and websites for after you get your feet wet and want to get into more advanced gardening issues. can't wait to eat the beautiful bounty that is "lisa's lil veggie patch"
This is BY FAR the best book for beginner gardeners. So many other books assume you already know all of the gardening terms. I have read and referred to this book countless times since I started gardening. It is a must-have for anyone who's just getting started or for anyone who'd like a well-organized reference book on veggie gardening.
This is a good guide to learn about vegetable gardening. I have actually read this book several times. It's very helpful for getting started the first time, or just for getting ready for Spring.
Well written and there is a lot of helpful information but there is more and better information for free online, especially location specific information. Save the money and Google it!
Lots of practical advice for those who either have no gardening experience or just ‎need a bit of a refresher. Easy to read and understand. ‎
Very good book for beginner gardeners. if only I had read it before I started my garden. :)
book is a good resource. It speaks in detail on each vegetable & how to garden them.
