Sage advice for the veg bed
Once upon a time, before supermarkets and fast food, we grew most of what we ate, learning how to garden almost by osmosis — everyone in the family pitched in. But for the legions of us who didn’t grow up with a spade in hand, how do we learn what works and what doesn’t?
Reading Patrick Lima’s eloquent, practical The Organic Home Garden is like having a mentor stand beside us as we sow and reap. Lima, well known for his perennial and herb books, has a confidence-boosting approach: “Give the garden your best thought, effort and attitude, and you’ll be surprised and gratified by the generous response.”
The Organic Home Garden is available in both print ($29.95) and digital ($9.99) formats through online booksellers around the world. Ask your indie bookseller to order or stock it. Bookseller inquiries are welcome.
