DIY Backyard Farm Edible Garden Planning Guide 2nd Edition
It happens each spring. Just like spring cleaning, the smell of cherry blossoms and the excitement over a new baseball season. People all around the world get the itch to go out into their yards to grow something. Some people are satisfied after tidying up their yards and planting some flowers. Many others are hungry for more, hungry for fresh edible produce right in their yards! Sadly, most of those hungry folks never grow anything edible at all. Instead, they find themselves feeling frustrated and confused. They did not grow up on a farm. Their parents were not gardeners. They have self-proclaimed, "brown thumbs"! What is the secret to a bountiful and delicious edible garden? The answer is not really a secret at all. Edible gardening success does not come from a secret fertilizer blend handed down through the generations or from some magical heirloom seeds. In his experiences, the author has identified planning and following simple gardening methods as two of the most important practices for growing successful edible gardens. This book offers the guidance and tools needed to simply, easily and effectively plan and track your edible garden while improving your results year after year. Inside you will find information and tips to guide you without overwhelming you. The book also includes worksheets to help address one of the biggest mistakes many edible gardeners make--failing to plan. Now go ahead, "plan your garden and garden your plan."
