Homegrown food is simply better: fresher, healthier, purer. You can taste it in tomatoes, plucked from the vine still warm from the sun, or in baby carrots pulled from the earth, the dirt brushed away. Once you've tasted really fresh produce, you'll never go back. Organic Kitchen Gardening is a complete guide to planning, planting, and caring for your own vegetable patch. Each chapter focuses on a different crop, and explains what should be happening each month in your garden. Useful diagrams and photographs illustrate the various techniques and processes. And a monthly diary reminds you what needs to be done, and includes tips on everything from composting and weed control to plant health care and watering.
