Excellent beginning to end! Learn how to site, build, plant, and maintain a traditional defined-bed kitchen garden. Plants have their own entry (so you don't have to read about kale if you don't plan to grow kale), and good photos of pests and diseases help identify problems.
Perfect for the urban homesteader who's starting from scratch and knows sweat equity saves money!

Great book with many details to help with your kitchen garden. Projects are actually useful, not just extra credit activities - cold frames, for example.
