Overview

Have you ever plucked a fresh, vine-ripened tomato from a bush and savored the hint of sunshine on your tongue while juice dribbled off your chin? If not, you are missing something close to Nirvana!

Sadly, the majority of people today have no idea what a treat they are missing. Oh sure, we have veggies every color of the rainbow available at the local supermarket. We even have the added benefit of summer vegetables in the winter. Melons and berries in January were unheard of a few years back. But, have you ever given any thought to the trade off for all this convenience?

There is a price to pay. Usually the price is processing and lack of flavor. All those "off season" vegetables come from somewhere around the globe. They are grown using pesticides that permeate the product, some even use dyes to create the pretty colors,

Sure, they look good, but we are never absolutely certain what goes into all that convenience. As if that were bad enough, many of those fruits and vegetables are utterly tasteless!

This isn't a treatise on over process foods, but rest assured even the veggies grown right here in the U S of A don't always make the grade. Yes, we have inspectors on top of inspectors. What good did that do for all those people who ate the bad cantaloupe this past summer.

How different do you think it would be if you were able to consume your own fresh vegetables? Knowing exactly how they were grown and what fertilizers you used would be a huge benefit for your family's health and well being. Not to mention that you would be in total control of how you preserved your vegetables for future enjoyment.

...But I don't have a green thumb!

You don't need one! All you need is a little instruction.

Ask yourself these three questions:
What if you could feed your family fresher foods?
What if you were able to insure a healthier diet?
What if there were a way to insure better nutrition?

Well, there is and you can. If you are like many people, you may have explored the idea of home gardening. The problem is finding out how to go about it when you have no experience. There are tons of information available about gardening. The problem is that almost everything is written at a level that requires a formal horticultural degree!

What you need is a practical guide that isn't full of technical jargon. You need a simple, easy to follow guide about how to get started. We have just the ticket. You need "Grow Better Vegetables Yourself."

And some of the best parts are...
It is not full of technical verbiage. It’s a very easy read.
It gets right to the details. The author does what he teaches!
Cost of the guide is minimal – you'll laugh at the price!

Our author, Andrew Westfall, has created a short, but very comprehensive guide that takes you by the hand and teaches what you need to know is simple, plain language. You CAN do this. Take a look at what you'll uncover:
Learn from what doesn't work.
Find out how to plan your new garden.
Discover whether to use seeds or seedlings.

Learn Andrew's special system for creating a vegetable bonanza!

Meet the Author

Andrew Westfall first learned about gardening at his junior school, when a teacher started a garden on the school grounds as a practical hands-on project for the students.

His parents encouraged his new interest by letting him help in the family garden.

Andrew said, “The early experience at my school and my parents’ support and advice gave me enough enthusiasm to get started and my first taste of some tomatoes which I grew and picked myself hooked me for life!”

Andrew wants to help readers share the benefits that he has experienced from gardening in various places through his life.

“I have moved around through my job, but I have always had a garden in the various places. So, I have experience which can help people start a garden or improve the one which they already have.”

“I know many people who say that they haven’t the time or aren’t fit enough to be a successful gardener. I wrote my book to show people how they can have a garden which fits with their situation and their lifestyle.”

Andrew believes that almost anyone can have a garden that can help to improve their well-being and provide them with healthier vegetables that are probably also safer.

“Some advantages which we get from growing some of our own vegetables are that we can be sure that they are fresh, do not have any chemicals or other treatments which we don’t know about and the exercise is as effective as similar effort on special equipment but much more enjoyable.”

Andrew gives you the best tips and information which he has learned from his own experience and research as well as the many generous amateur and professional gardeners he learned from through the years.

“Gardeners world-wide are a great fraternity and gardening is one of the greatest hobbies I know.”
