By H. Voelker on April 24, 2012
Format: Paperback
Even without color photos, this book is a colorful mix of knowledge,
enthusiasm and a real treasure trove for good tips and advice for growing
vegetables in raised beds. If you have a sunny spot in your garden, even
in the midst of the city with this construction you can grow your own vegetables
most effectively.

Even though I'm not technically gifted and I don't have a green thumb, I am
sure that I can build these beds by myself. Reading this book you feel like
starting your project right away, the inspiration from the book jumps
immediately to the reader.

You can tell that the author has a wealth of experience when she talks about
growing her vegetables in more than twenty raised beds, and the photos were
taken in her own garden.

The first part of the book deals with the construction of the beds, in the
second she explains the filling and the third part she presents 25 of the most
common vegetables with all necessary facts you need to know for growing them in
the raised beds.

... and a lot of tips from the experienced authors on how to be smart about everything that involves gardening. Written with a good portion of light humor, easy to read and follow. Many ideas about how to avoid expensive ready-made products by replacing them with household products, or using cheaper materials with the same great result. Highly recommend it, for the first-timer as well as the experienced gardeners.
