This review is from: Vegetable Gardening in the North (Kindle Edition)
This e-book has all the basics and more for backyard vegetable gardening in the North. Doug talks about how to amend your soil for optimal growing and how to control weeds organically. There is a lot of good information on compost and how it helps your soil.
He explains how to determine when to plant for optimum harvest times, how much and when to water your garden, and also how to succeed at container gardening. There is a good section on organic pest and animal control and chapters to help you plan and space your plantings. Doug goes through many, many types of vegetables, one by one, explaining when, where, and how to plant each one. He also adds care and maintenance of each vegatable and any additional information that each may require.
Overall this is a great little gardening book with all of the basics you will need to be a successful gardener. I have a lot of gardening books, but, I can see myself going back to this reference more frequently due to its straightforward and succinctly organized format.
And, as always, Doug's two most important rules of gardening are: It's supposed to be FUN and it isn't rocket science!
