Product Description


“An inspiring book for those with a can-do spirit but not much gardening space.”

"A stylish yet substantial introduction to growing edibles in small spaces."

“A great book for beginners and for those of us who need winter eye candy.”

“Inspiration…for veggie patches on balconies, patios, and the tiniest of city plots…complete this yummy and useful presentation.”

“A marvelous book that's entertaining, extremely useful, and lovely. I recommend it highly.” 

“An invaluable resource for aspiring greenthumbed terrace farmers.”

“I’d recommend it to any new gardener of edibles, particularly one who has limited or no access to a plot of earth she can call her own.”

“Full of wisdom and practical advice…stands apart for its tone, which is both gentle and practical, and its many fascinating sidebars and offshoots. Easy to flip through and find something fun to read in a hurry.”

“Particularly useful to those urban/suburban homes with very limited space.”

“Full of smart ideas for how to deal with a seemingly impossible growing situation.”

“A fine piece of informational, inspiring and winning work.”

"Creative and fresh."

Beautiful, down-to-earth, completely enticing.

A nice book for a new gardener or an old one - to sift thorough as we wait for the gardening season.

Bright, cheerful, and motivating…you will wonder why anyone would ever hesitate to grow a few edibles even if they have only a fire escape or deck.

Whether you've got a porch or just a windowsill, Heavy Petal blogger Andrea Bellamy has you covered—her Sugar Snaps and Strawberries is an accessible, comprehensive guide to small-space gardening.

This book is a beautifully crafted, how-to guide on gardening. You'll fly through the pages because it's easy to read and comprehend. It's an inviting book inside and out, including the full page photos.

There's so many things that I like about this book, for example the writing doesn't flow page over page so it's easier to find your way back to a particular topic.

I bought this book as a gift for my husband and it has inspired both of us to plan our edible garden...instead of just winging it because we've been dissapointed with the results. Some of the most useful information in the book is of course when to sow what and under what conditions. I have a compost in my garden and the book covers what you should and shouldn't put in it so that you can maximize the nutrients your plants receive.

The book was a great investment and in addition to spending more time with my husband in the garden, I look forward to growing some really good eats!

So many times you are left mid-growing season scratching your head wondering what happened to your vegetables. So anxious to get planting there's often little thought to such details as what to plant where, what soil to use, how to optimize your soil, deal with pests and keep your food edible (i.e. no chemicals). But who wants to read a boring textbook on gardening when the sun is shining and your empty garden is beaconing, "Plant me!"? Enter Sugar Snaps and Strawberries. Written in plain language in an engaging, fun and light voice, this book is a fantastic guide and terrific reference to getting gardening right. So much so that you might find yourself glued to the pages and putting off your crops until you reach the last page! Follow even some of the advice in here and you'll be guaranteed to get better yields, and do more eating of the food you grow. When you have limited space, as Andrea suggests, maximizing what you plant can still be very rewarding. Even if you have more room, everything still applies.

Full of wisdom and gorgeous photos, and packaged in an attractive design, this book is worth every penny. Actually, come to think of it, for the cost of a bag of Farmer's Market veggies, this is the best investment you will make in your garden and your future food supply.

I had the great opportunity to stumble upon Andrea's stand at our local Trout Lake Farmers market. She had "seed bombs" on her table, and that intrigued my oldest daughter... That's how we got to check her book out. it's awesome!
Very well written and with loads of tips and tricks.
So after checking it out, we bought it (spent the last of our market dollars on it, and well worth it !). We even got a little hand written note for my daughter :-)
We have now created two small spaces where we can grow some food. And we are actively watching our tomatoes, rhubarb and salad growing. We even know how to remove the suckers from the tomato plants!
So all this to say that it really is an inspirational book, written for everyone who wants to garden. Highly recommend it !
