So, I’m a TOTALLY lazy gardener. I love the idea of gathering my fresh herbs and veg from our delightfully lush garden that simply and magically teems with produce.
In reality though, instead of pre-planning the seeds I shall grow in an orderly manner, I storm the local garden center, buying a bunch of seedlings. Then, in a mad rush I shove them into the ground and then forget to water them enough, relying on Mother Nature to fill in my gaps. Sometimes things grow, sometimes they don’t. I don’t have enough time or experience to understand why certain plants shrivel or certain others seem to explode across my ‘garden’.
NOW I AM LEARNING!
This book – The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden by Karen Newcomb – explains things, offers ideas for garden planning, shows you how to utilitze your vertical space (so cool!), suggestions on where to buy from, reasons for problems, and gives you SO MUCH ADVICE!
I’m so so psyched for spring already.
I can tell this year I’ll be able to have a really decent garden – because of THIS.BOOK.
Thank you Karen Newcomb.
P.S. This is actually the 40th anniversary for this book, totally revised for modern audiences – and it fooled me! I thought it was BRAND NEW. Well done editorial staff!!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
