Are you tired of throwing away time, energy, and money on a
perfectly manicured, water-guzzling, weed-producing lawn?
Are you longing to feed your family in more healthful and
eco-friendly ways but shocked by organic produce prices at
the grocery store? Do you fantasize about growing your own
food but hesitate to take on more than you can manage? Â If
you answered yes to any of these questions, itâ€™s time for
you to get down and dirtyâ€”and take the plunge that will
please your taste buds and your pocket-book! In Small-Plot,
High-Yield Gardening, Sal Gilbertie and Larry Sheehan will
help you turn your sprawling suburban acreage or postage
stampâ€“sized plot into a low-impact, all-organic, totally
sustainable produce garden. Â Youâ€™ll learn about the most
effective natural fertilizers, drought-resistant cultivation
methods, pest-repellent companion plantings, trends in
heirloom herb and vegetable varieties, and raised-bed
techniques for achieving maximum productivity in a limited
space. You can even add a cutting garden so youâ€™ll always
have fresh flowers on a kitchen table thatâ€™s groaning under
the weight of incomparably fresh vegetables seasoned with a
variety of home-grown herbs. Â Whether youâ€™re filling a 10â€™ x
10â€™ sandbox or digging up your 3,000-square-foot tennis
court, any yard has the potential to produce a multi-crop
bonanza. And anyone with a little soil and a lot of heart
can do it!
