One of the problems with purchasing organic produce from some local markets is that you can never be completely sure that you are getting what is advertised. One sure way to protect against this is to start your own backyard organic garden.
In How to Grow More Vegetables, author John Jeavons offers invaluable guidance for beginners and advanced food-growers alike. The methods discussed work in harmony with nature’s cycles, preserve and enrich the earth’s nutrients, and nourish the soil for future crops. Maintaining a personal garden takes less time and commitment than you may think, and the results are delicious and healthful.
“We love How to Grow More Vegetables for what it teaches and what it produces,” says Alice Waters of Chez Panisse. “Wonderful meals begin in the garden with seasonal vegetables that are pure and flavorful.”
