Want great tasting veggies from your own garden but cringe at the thought of doing all that back-breaking work of maintaining your garden?
If you're currently gardening with chemicals and have decided that gardening organically would give you plants with better nutrition and better taste but you don't want to hang up your tools for 7 years waiting for your soil to heal.
NO WORK VEGETABLE GARDENING by Joyce Zborower provides simple, easy-to-follow instructions for building and planting a new organic gardening bed right over an old chemical bed, a grassy spot that's never been planted before, a rocky area or even in a raised planting bed so you won't have to bend over to harvest your goodies. And once the bed is ready and planted, any further work on your part is very minimal.
And there are full-color photos to show you exactly what to do.
Is it really "no work?" . . . No, but it's as close as you'll ever get without hiring someone to take care of it for you.
About the Author
Living in a second floor apartment in Chicago was okay for raising herbs and flowers on the window sill, but Joyce wanted a vegetable garden outdoors in the sunshine where she could grow tomatoes and potatoes and squash and beans. After moving to Arizona, she was able to plant a small garden in the back yard of her rented house but the organic gardening books she had at the time recommended tilling and weeding and etc., etc. She thought there must be a better way.
There was. After extensive searching and reading, she found what she was looking for . . . a method of planting and growing veggies with a minimum of work and a maximum of pleasure. And, in No Work Vegetable Gardening she’s sharing what she found with you.
