New Book by Barbara Pleasant!
So far, the 2010 gardening season is off to a great start - I just picked up a copy of Barbara Pleasant's new book, Starter Vegetable Gardens (Storey Publishing, 2010)! I am a huge fan of Barbara's, whose other books include The Complete Houseplant Survival Manual and The Complete Compost Gardening Guide (a particular favourite!). She's also a frequent guest on my radio show, always sharing fun gardening tidbits with my listeners.
For anyone contemplating starting an organic veggie garden this year - or expanding their current plantings, this is the book for you! It's packed full of useful info and colour photographs, as well as 24 no-fail plans. From bag gardening to bountiful borders to family food factories, Barbara details easy and fun ways to 'grow your own'.
