The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook (In Colour)
Easy Organic Vegetables and More Money in Your Pocket
by Cam Mather
Many books make vegetable gardening look difficult, with charts and checklists and talk of trace minerals and hard-to-find soil supplements. Growing vegetables can seem intimidating. That’s why The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook is such a breath of fresh air. It assures readers that there’s nothing to it and encourages them to just get out there and do it. With basic tips and techniques, it provides enough tools to inspire gardeners but doesn’t overwhelm them.
The North American diet uses lots of fossil fuels, and as we run out of the easy oil we will spend an ever-increasing percentage of our incomes on food. With many hard hit by the economic crisis, growing your own food simply makes economic sense. The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook examines the health benefits of each of the vegetables and fruits listed. Sure, Grandma always told us to eat our vegetables, but as adults it’s nice to know about all the incredible health benefits of each item you’re growing. The book also provides strategies for harvesting rainwater, watering with drip irrigation, and dealing with some of the challenges our changing climate may throw at you.
Whether you have a small lot in the city, a suburban backyard, or a large country property, The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook is the tool you need to get motivated to start growing healthy, local, inexpensive organic vegetables and eating the 100-Foot Diet today!
