This is a great how-to guide for anyone wanting to grow their own food without having a huge garden. I am lucky enough to have a yard big enough for a garden, but am a little hesitant to commit to one, so I picked up this book in hopes of maybe starting a container garden. This book did not disappoint. Not only does it give tips on containers, but it also gives advice on really cool edibles you can grow indoors (including trees!) It also has a neat plan for a kitchen garden, spa garden, garden for kids, etc... full of wonderful edible and usable plants. It's written for beginners and has explicit instructions so you won't be confused. I can't wait for warmer weather to start my container garden, but I think I'm going to go ahead and get some goodies for indoors, too!
