Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Raymond Nones, the author of this book, lives and gardens in Queens, New York, so he knows that making the most of the space you have is essential. In this revised edition of a much thumbed green-thumb guide, he accentuates the positive with more detailed pointers on planting, cultivating, mulching, watering, sowing seeds, thinning, transplanting, composting, crop rotation, pest control, seed saving, and, of course, harvesting. Solid advice for friends of the soil; a trade paperback and NOOK Book original.

    Raised Bed Vegetable Gardening Insightful and Delightful!

    A classic! The author developed a modular gardening method and many innovative techniques that make growing vegetables simpler and easier.

    By following his techniques, I clearly see that I will have an abundance of fresh, organgic veggies to put on the table. Grocery bills will go down for sure. Plus, my family will eat much healthier and nutritious organic food picked right from the garden!

    The book is also chock full of practical down-to-earth information that I have not seen elsewhere. The illustrations are great!
