Recent Reads: How To Grow More Vegetables

I ran across this title while poking around the web for self-sufficiency zombie apocalypse sorts of things, and found it highly recommended, so I thought what the hell, and bought it.

I’m not even a gardener (though I have ambitions), and even so, this book was really just completely fascinating to read. I have no idea if everybody would find it so interesting, but wow, I’d think if you have any impulse toward (food) gardening at all, you want to read this one.

I mean, they’re selling a product, to a degree, and you can’t forget that while reading it. OTOH, they have actual step by step instructions on digging out a gardening bed, and on building a compost heap, and…really, it was just a really interesting read, which I totally didn’t expect.
