This book is my story about developing several high-yielding vegetable beds in my backyard.
The book provides a description and pictures of my vegetable garden beds, the crops I grow, and my tried and tested techniques for turning poor soil into productive vegetable beds. I also explore reasons why increasing numbers of people are growing their own vegetables. In the last chapter, I’ll provide you with a guide to growing your own vegetables all year round based on my experiences of gardening.
Growing your own is a small step towards reducing your carbon footprint but it is something that is within your control. When you grow your own vegetables, you reduce your vegetable ‘food miles’ to zero.
