A cornucopia of information.

Once available only at farmers' markets, organic produce is now basic stock at the supermarket. With mounting concerns about pesticides, climate change and consumption levels of fossil fuels, consumers are more careful about how, and where, fruits and vegetables are grown -- and how far they have traveled to get to their table. More than ever, people are deciding not only to purchase organic and local produce, but also to grow their own.

The Organic Home Garden shows in detail how to plant, grow and harvest delicious vegetables and fruits from spring to fall and from seed to harvest.

Since most consumers live in urban and suburban settings with limited space, Patrick Lima explains how to create an organic garden that is both compact and productive. Through step-by-step examples, he shows how to prepare odorless in-ground compost; transform fallen leaves into a valuable soil conditioner; and design, build and plant permanent raised beds. Among the important topics covered are:

Soil preparation Using cold frames Selecting seeds Transplanting techniques Natural pest and disease control Multiple harvests fromasingle garden Frost protection.

Extensive line drawings and charts plus 50 stunning color photographs illustrate the different gardening steps. For making the most of home-grown fruits and vegetables, 30 outstanding recipes are also included.


Reviews about The Organic Home Garden: How to Grow Fruits and Vegetables Naturally (5):

I purchased this one for a friend after being given my own copy by yet another friend. Absolutely my go-to for all things vegetable gardening.

I recently checked this book out through interlibrary loan only to find that it is the SAME book as one I own, published in 1992 by Prima Lifestyles, under the title The Natural Food Garden: Growing Fruits and Vegetables Chemical-free, or rather "owned", as I lent my heavily read, annotated, and underlined copy to a friend several years ago and it accidentally got packed in her things when she moved away. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the contents are the same, only the title and cover were changed.
Anyways, it's one of my favorite gardening books, very accessible, encouraging, and inspirational, with some good pictures, and it's available used under the other title often for far less money here: http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Food-Garden-Vegetables-Chemical-Free/dp/1559582022

The Organic Home Garden is a navigator to both growing an organic home garden and creating a sustainable lifestyle through hope and love. It resonates with life and will bring both inspiration and practical bounties to the reader. The photos are beautiful and the writing smooth and human. Its extensive organic techniques along with practical applications put this book above many of its kind. An inspirational and knowledgeable book that is first rate amongst my garden books.

Decent overview of general gardening. Not much info on zone specific gardening techniques or when is best to start different crops. A good book for beginners.
