Description
Small enough for a large pocket, yet packed with concise practical information and illustrations, this chunky kitchen gardening guide answers questions on everything from planning and planting a vegetable garden to improving soil, caring for crops, organically controlling pests and diseases, and harvesting your produce. If you want to know how to go about growing almost all of your own food in a small backyard plot, why you would go to the trouble of starting seeds when you can buy transplants, or what goes—and doesn't go—into a compost pile, just keep this browsable companion handy.

"Barbara Ellis knows how your garden grows or, more specifically, how it should."—News Tribune (Tacoma)

"This handy little book will give you information on everything from starting seeds to dealing with pesky critters in the garden. We loved the crop-by-crop breakdown of care tips."—Rocky Mountain News

"Veteran horticulturist and gardener Ellis uses the straightforward Q&A format to furnish pithy responses to the most basic, as well as the most esoteric, gardening questions. From the simple sowing of seeds to the complexities of crop rotation to the benefits of organic pest control, Ellis demystifies essential cultural techniques and practices, and profiles more than 20 popular garden crops. Helpful sidebars offer tips on such critical topics as weeding and harvesting, while appendixes cover crop-planting guidelines and a state-by-state breakdown of growing seasons."—Booklist
