In 224 well-planned pages, third-generation farmer Brett Markham sets out the essentials of growing vegetables. The Mini Farming Guide to Vegetable Gardening covers it all: from choosing crop varieties, saving seeds, and starting seedlings; to soil fertility practices and dealing with pests; to home canning, freezing, and dehydrating. Markham maintains that with guidance, you can start a mini-farm on a quarter acre or less that will provide eighty-five percent of the food for a family of four—and earn an income. He knows of which he speaks: His half-acre Certified Naturally Grown mini-farm runs at a profit. A trade paperback original.
