About this item
You won't believe your eyes when you see the size of your harvest! In High-Yield Vegetable Gardening, authors Colin McCrate and Brad Halm show you how you can make your food garden much more productive, no matter how big or small it is. You'll learn their secrets for preparing the soil, selecting and rotating your crops, and mapping out a specific customized plan to make the most of your space and your growing season. Packed with the charts, tables, schedules, and worksheets you need -- as well as record-keeping pages so you can repeat your successes next year -- this book is an essential tool for the serious gardener.
High-Yield Vegetable Gardening teaches readers how to grow a productive home vegetable garden using methods the authors (former CSA farmers) developed while working with hundreds of novice urban farmers. Halm and McCrate demonstrate how to scale down CSA growing techniques in order to scale up your home vegetable garden ? from planning specific quantities of particular crops to seed-starting en masse, using land efficiently with smart crop rotation, intensive soil management techniques, extended-season growing, and integrating nonfood crops into the mix.
