Grow delicious (and gorgeous!) vegetables, herbs and flowers in your backyard with this comprehensive guide. The Backyard Gardener is every organic gardener’s must have, rife with mouthwatering photographs, helpful planting suggestions, and tried-and-true techniques.
Dive deep into crop rotation. This is the key to the organic kitchen garden—and how the book is organized. Each section provides detailed guidance on everything from germination, succession and companion planting to how-to harvest, store and preserve your vegetables, herbs and flowers. Learn about innovative growing techniques (have you ever grown a potato tower? Or heard of straw-bale gardening) to old-fashioned—yet super effective—season extension practices that make the most of small-spaces and growing in less-than-ideal conditions.
From raising healthy vegetables, controlling pests with homemade remedies, starting and saving seeds to Kelly’s fantasy sheet mulch recipe and maximizing the space in your garden, you’ll have everything at your fingertips to be successful right out of the gate!
