The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden by Karen Newcomb
Just in time for gardening to begin (well, depending on your location!) this book arrived at my door. We usually have a small garden each year, though we have never really planned it out like you would a postage stamp garden. Last year there was no garden, and honestly this year is iffy as there is a lot of other stuff going on and I am not sure it can be squeezed in even with the help of this book, but we’ll see.
This book is fantastic for those new to gardening, or those like myself who have never really put a lot of thought into their gardens but are looking to learn to plant a more effecient garden.
Included in this book is some great basic information and instructions on on the ideal soil blend, keeping unwanted insects away while attracting those that will be bemeficial, building a compost bin, and of course planning your postage stamp garden. There are some sample garden plans you can choose to use either as is or simply as inspiration for your own garden. There is information provided on numerous vegetables – when to plant them, how to harvest and store them etc – to help you with the timeline of your garden and how to handle the produce when it is ready.
I love that there is also information provided for container gardens for those who can’t, for whatever reason, have a garden in their yard.
I really love this book, and absolutely recommend it!
