“John’s methods are nothing short of miraculous.”
—Alice Waters, author, Slow Food crusader, and founder of Chez Panisse restaurant
“Possibly the most detailed explanation of the Biointensive gardening method available.”
—New York Times
“There are two kinds of vegetable gardeners--those who garden in beds of some kind and for whom this is the ultimate foundation book, a must-read, and an essential reference. Then there are those who don't garden in beds, for whom it’s still a must-read and an essential reference. The full title--How to Grow More Vegetables (and Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops) Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagine--actually understates the contents. The book is about how to grow pretty nearly all your food and your garden’s fertilizer on a modest amount of land.”
—Carol Deppe, author of The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain Times

Say Goodbye to fertilizers and hello healthy plants. Wow what a difference it has made in my garden.
The only problem is that at times the author can be a little technical.
First I dug the whole thing 1-2 feet deep just to loosen the soil. Then laid down soaker hoses all over it and covered them with weed barrier. Then I hooked up the hoses to a timer so they never miss a watering. Voila, gigantic vegetables and no work.
