Ah, master gardener Linda Gilkeson, you so had me at "Grow the most food in the smallest space (with the least work)." Backyard Bounty is truly a complete guide. Not only is there help with planning and planting, Gilkeson also shares advice for ailing plants and pests. Included as well, one of my favorite features in a gardening title: a monthly garden schedule.

  • Planning your garden and preparing the soil
  • Organic fertilizers and simplified composting
  • Growing healthy seedlings, transplanting, easy weeding and mulching
  • Growing fruit and simple pruning methods
  • Greenhouses, tunnels, and containers
  • Organic pest management and more

Packed with a wealth of information specific to the Pacific Northwest, this complete guide emphasizes low maintenance methods, exposes common gardening myths, includes a monthly garden schedule for year-round planting and harvesting, and features plant profiles for everything from apples to zucchini. Perfect for novice and experienced gardeners alike, Backyard Bounty shows how even the smallest garden can produce a surprising amount of food twelve months of the year.

Review:

"New book from Linda Gilkeson....This is the sort of news that organic gardeners in BC should get excited about....Whether you're a novice gardener or a seasoned grower, there's lots of really practical, helpful insights in this book. And, like the WCS Growing Guide, its regionally specific, so there's no guess work in adjusting the planting schedules....We see lots of new books come in, but this one deserves some attention, in my opinion." West Coast Seeds blog

Synopsis:

Grow more food with less work in any yard.

From picking the best spot in the yard for each crop to planning out successive harvests, this book helps make the most of limited time, energy and space. A must-have for any home gardener!
