Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The kitchen garden has always been an important part of life in the rural south, at times meaning the difference between being well-fed or going to bed hungry. In recent times, the kitchen garden has become fashionable, and now more and more homeowners (in cities, suburbs, as well as the country) are reaping the delicious rewards of growing their own food. A kitchen garden needs little more than a small raised bed, so an aspiring gardener with only a modest backyard will have plenty of room to get started. Starting with location and soil preparation, the authors take you step-by-step into the world of the southern kitchen garden. This includes planting guides for each fruit and vegetable, plus useful information on propagation and pest-control, with recipes scattered throughout.
