Cubed Foot Gardening: Growing Vegetables in Raised, Intensive Beds Reviews
Just got started in planting my beds! But I have been unable to find 15-10-10 fertilizer as recommended for corn. Any alternatives? Or sources for 15-10-10? Thx. Great book, easy and entertaintaing.
This Book will show you how to save space, and get the best buck for your available space. Almost as good as Hydroponics!!
I've been growing vegetables with some success for over 40 years but have recently moved to Florida with its non-fertile, quick-draining sand, baking sun, and mega-insects. We also have a "normal size" lot so I expected my crops would be limited to a couple of tomatoes and peppers. I was more than pleased at the variety and health of the gardens we have experienced using the techniques in this book. I'm inspired to double the size of my garden this year.
I purchased this book to replace a copy that I purchased earlier and "loaned" to someone. The author's method is highly practical and straightforward. I would have liked the author to consider and explain other options and let me make some choices. He seems to be a strong advocate mainly for his chosen techniques.
I'm a big fan of square foot gardening and this book is a great takeoff on Mel Bartholomew's original concept.
Great gardening info...
We discovered that the soil was to poor for a garden...good ideas for a small raised garden that produces lots of veggies...bud
This book is not worth the money wanted. The same ideas, just better, are in the Square-Foot Gardening series of bks. I should have got this out of the library first but no library had it around me. I guess it would be ok if you're really just starting out reading about this type of gardening.
