Having a backyard garden in a small space got a lot easier when the first edition of this wonderful handbook was published. Now it gets even easier--Raised-Bed Vegetable Gardening Made Simple has been revised!

Framed raised beds and a modular approach to growing vegetables means more production in less space and with less work. Whether you live in a small city apartment or on a large country estate, you'll find something in this book to help with your specific gardening challenges. Nones shows you how to set everything up and then gives you in-depth descriptions of all the procedures needed to achieve gardening success: sowing seeds, thinning, transplanting, cultivating, mulching, watering, harvesting, pest control, composting, crop rotation, and seed saving. It's a complete gardening guide for both the beginner and the experienced gardener, useful for those who have never tried raised beds before as well as for those who have already tried a raised-bed system. Far less bending, far less weeding, more produce at harvest time--gardeners, what have you been waiting for?

Raymond Nones is a dirt-under-the-fingernails organic practitioner and proud penny-pincher who lives and gardens in Queens, New York.

If you are thinking of putting a raised bed in for veggies, this is the book for you. The author has his system down to a science and everything is explained step by step. If you have no experience or quite a bit, you could learn a lot from his methods. And, I love that he strives for efficiency so that he can care for all his veggies by himself.

I read a lot of gardening books and there was really nothing wrong with this one, it just didn't add anything new to the mix. If you're interested in raised bed intensive gardening, I would recommend the square foot gardening series over this one, for sure.
