All New Square Foot Gardening: Grow More in Less Space!by Mel Bartholomew
This is the best gardening book ever! I first read Mel Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening years ago while planning my first vegetable garden, and I loved the idea of having a bumper crop of vegetables despite living in an apartment. The updated All New Square Foot Gardening offers some fresh ideas and techniques, along with some helpful charts and all the basics of square foot gardening. Last year I raised a wonderful garden that was easy to care for and harvested lots of yummy tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, lettuce, and other summer goodies — all in a two-foot by ten-foot plot!
