GARDEN VEG MER
Offers techniques for plotting and planning; instructions for growing vegetables, fruits, herbs, and berries; and tips on pruning, feeding, and harvesting a garden.
Many people would love to enjoy eating super-fresh homegrown produce but don’t know how. Starting with what varieties to plant through how to tend their garden and when and how to harvest the fruits of thei labors, this book is the complete vegetable gardening system for busy people. The book breaks things down into three simple steps: sow, grow, and harvest.
Readers will learn how to set their garden; how to install raised beds and a watering system; and why the time spent getting ready to sow will be repaid many times over during the summer. They will find out how to grow, learning all about mulches and weed covers, garden sites, and planting plans. Then day by day through the growing season, they will see how to make their garden grow. And finally they’ll learn how to tell when it’s time to harvest and how to store vegetables they can’t eat right away.
By spending growing their own vegetables, readers will enjoy crops harvested at the peak of perfection, bringing food from garden to table in minutes flat. And they’ll be eating the freshest home-grown vegetables, herbs, and fruit available instead of the underripe or limp, sickly offerings so often found in supermarkets.
