Description
How did your grandparents' garden grow? Usually with the help of such sage maxims as "When your garden contains lots of earthworms, your soil is good," passed down from one generation to the next and steeped in a profound respect for nature itself. This practical book is filled with hundreds of such simple, nature-friendly tips and techniques, describing how to grow heirloom vegetables and flowers, collect seeds for next year's garden, repel moles with castor oil and prevent mice with certain plantings, build a compost bin from recycled materials, and make a cold frame to protect plants from frost. Virtually every page is illustrated with color drawings or photos.
