Finally someone has taken the time to address the, "How do I even start?" perspective!
It's great to be a garden enthusiast, but, how wonderful that THIS book will help those of us who AREN'T!
I want to grow my own food- but, to start, I don't need to know every single thing that there is to know about the world of growing food.
Perhaps I will become more interested along the way, but, right now I just want to get some food from my backyard without having to read a GIANT book or take some time consuming class.
Thank you to the author for her effort to create a book that helps me figure out:
What to plant- where to plant- what to buy (and not buy) and what kinds of critters I may want to (eventually) invite to live amongst my azaleas and Rhoddies!
I also appreciate that I can read this book in small doses in- between the zillion other things I need to do in my life!
When reading this book, I feel as though the author is talking RIGHT TO ME!
From raising worms and strawberries to cultivating all the ingredients for a gourmet salad, this nifty guidebook has easy to understand instructions as well as answers to the most common challenges urban farmers face.
Why drive to your local Farmer's Market when you can just walk a few feet and pick your own fresh produce. Your Farm in the City shows you how.
