If you're just starting to attempt to grow your own food, this is a book you will find valuable! Lots of easy to read directions and helpful hints included, especially for those of us who grow in pots. I highly recommend this title for the beginning gardener.

Excellent beginning to end! Learn how to site, build, plant, and maintain a traditional defined-bed kitchen garden. Plants have their own entry (so you don't have to read about kale if you don't plan to grow kale), and good photos of pests and diseases help identify problems.
Perfect for the urban homesteader who's starting from scratch and knows sweat equity saves money!

Great book with many details to help with your kitchen garden. Projects are actually useful, not just extra credit activities - cold frames, for example.
