Grow more veggies—in less space and with less work—than you ever thought possible! Having a backyard garden in a small space got a lot easier when the first edition of this wonderful handbook was published. Now it gets even easier—Raised-Bed Vegetable Gardening Made Simple has been revised! Framed raised beds and a modular approach to growing vegetables means more production in less space and with less work. Whether you live in a small city apartment or on a large country estate, you’ll find something in this book to help with your specific gardening challenges. Nones shows you how to set everything up and then gives you in-depth descriptions of all the procedures needed to achieve gardening success: sowing seeds, thinning, transplanting, cultivating, mulching, watering, harvesting, pest control, composting, crop rotation, and seed saving. It’s a complete gardening guide for both the beginner and the experienced gardener, useful for those who have never tried raised beds before as well as for those who have already tried a raised-bed system. Far less bending, far less weeding, more produce at harvest time—gardeners, what have you been waiting for?

Calculate the return on investment for your vegetable garden and get the most bang for your gardening bucks! Get the most return on investment from your garden by calculating which vegetables, fruits, and herbs give the highest payback. To make the selection process of what to grow easy, Mel Bartholomew--author of the best-selling Square Foot Gardening--has a new book to maximize your garden's ROI. High-Value Veggies is an easy-to-use reference book helping gardeners choose edibles that make the most financial and spatial sense. Explore the thought processes and math behind growing vegetables and herbs in order to craft the best plan for your produce. Maximizing your garden's yield is no simple task. Consider the tomato; most people think it's a safe bet for a high-yield return - but which variety? Heirloom tomatoes typically cost $5 or more a pound at farmers' markets. You can beat that price by growing Cherokee Purples from seed at a net cost of only 80 cents per pound. If you plant purchased seedlings, the cost will go up to about $1 a pound--and that's including the cost of water and fertilizer. High-Value Veggies makes this cost evaluation for each vegetable easy. Whether you're interested in growing tomatoes, pumpkins, cabbage, corn, or anything else, it's wise to consider the invisible dollar signs sown along the way. The relative ROI for each veggie in High-Value Veggies is calculated based on dollar value generated for each square foot planted. You don't need to be a math whiz to plan your next vegetable garden. Bartholomew has done the math for you, and he has cost-effective answers.
