Product Description

Product Description

Can you think of anything nicer than preparing a meal from produce grown in your own garden? Whether you own a window box or a meadow, every outdoor space can yield a fine crop of fruit or vegetables. Plant some delicious cut-and-come again salads in a window box, plan a ‘square foot’ garden on a four-foot square plot, or use your flowerbed to grow decorative vegetables and flowers together. Growing your own food doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive. A few packets of seeds and some basic tools – a spade, fork, hoe, rake, trowel and watering can – will provide you with all you need to fill a plot with vegetables. Whatever you choose to grow you’ll find nothing beats the satisfaction of serving up a home-cooked, home-grown meal to family or friends. Good luck and happy digging.

While I have been growing our own food for years, this little book had some good advice and I actually read it twice and will keep it on my Kindle for future reference.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broad overview book April 5 2012
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book contains some great ideas but lacks details.
It is targeted at a reader who lives in the outskirts of the suburbs or in a rural area with room to spread out. There is a chapter about container gardening, but most of the book is large scale including a section on keeping animals and another on moving to a farm. I will take a few notes about companion plants, but at the end of the day this book doesn't have the specifics I was looking for, nor does it address the scale of gardening I do.

3.0 out of 5 stars General set of articles jammed together, interesting nonetheless April 7 2012
By Sandra Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just read the book. It is interesting and covers the basics of food gardening from a theoretical standpoint. It doesn't have a person as author and the writing shows clearly that it is more a set of articles to introduce the subject than in depth information. It seems to be written by a ghost writer, not someone with practical knowledge.

I don't personally agree with part of what it says, like the treatment of weeds (most of the named are edible and highly nutritious). I do agree with others, like the mention of dandelion for salads. Some of the information, like what to plant close to what, is something to ponder.

The last page of the ebook shows a couple of links to other products being sold, hopefully they do contain practical information.

I gave it three stars because the writer did a good job, even when he/she might have never planted anything in his/her life. To the publisher.... they could have given more information. With so little practical info they are surely losing sales of the books promoted.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly A Waste of Time April 9 2012
By Grandma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Grow your own food seems to be nothing more than a cobbled together republication of part of "Downshift to the Good Life" by Lynn Huggins-Cooper, published in the UK by The Infinite Ideas Company Limited in 2005. While the book is long on ideas, it is very short on specifics.

Grandma's Opinion: This book is mostly a waste of time. If you want great ideas about preserving food or making compost or raising vegetables, buy one of the very well regarded GoTO books specific to those topics. Or see the Internet.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's good for someone looking for the basics March 12 2013
By Deanna Kirkeby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is good for someone looking for information on the basics but not if you want details and suggestions. Most people don't have a whole lot of room to grow our own food and I thought that this book would help with that. However, it was basically written for people with lots of land.
There was some stuff that was interesting and some I agreed with but others not so much. It's a good book that I will use for my children for homeschooling and give further assignments but it was not what I was expecting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Planning To Grow Food April 12 2012
By Len Pellett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found quite a lot of useful information, especially for the small household garden. This book has made me think about an allotment and how my family could benefit from the growing space of an allotment. I like the idea of not only growing vegetables on an allotment, but also using it for growing flowers and herbs. Basic information, not for the more advanced grower.
