Gardening: The Essential Beginner's Guide to Organic Vegetable Gardening - Maria D. Garrett

Gardening: The Essential Beginner's Guide to Organic Vegetable Gardening
Just about ready to start our second organic raised bed garden and agreed to read this book hoping we can find more useful information.
Starts out with the list of why you should start a vegetable garden.  Benefits are so helpful when seen in a list format.
Next are chapters on tools you will need-although quite the variety is available it's up to you to decide which to buy.
Just cleared two pine trees from the lawn that we grew over 36 years so now that opens the area for a lot of sunlight. Liked the compost sections. The right dirt and container sizes are also discussed. Seeds and GMO's are discussed.
Easy plants to grow and why and how.  Mistakes and solutions are a treasured chapter!  Direction of the garden-vertical sounds like something we need to investigate.
Liked this book as it concentrates on just everything you need to know but doesn't spend hour after hour on just one subject.  Advanced gardening is discussed also.
Bonus ebook listed at the end. Found this ebook easy to understand and fun to read.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review
