The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden review

The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden

b61iRmx nujLy: Karen Newcomb

This classic gardening bestseller (over 500,000 copies sold) uses ecologically friendly, intensive biodynamic methods to produce large amounts of vegetables in very tiny spaces. Revised for an all new generation of gardeners, the 40th anniversary edition includes brand new information on the variety of heirloom vegetables available today and how to grow them the postage stamp way.

This book is a great resource for those who have small spaces for growing things. She shows how to plant and where to plant.  I love that she includes container gardens in this book since we are in a rental at this time.

Karen shows you how to plan the garden, when to plant it, how often to water and what plants will grow well together in order to help you get the most use out of your garden space.

She has some garden plans in the book you can use as a guide, which is awesome for a beginner gardener like myself. It’s also very simple and easy to understand.  With this book in hand I think I can have a pretty successful garden even in my first year.
