As a city dweller I don't have a lot of space to garden, although I love the taste of fresh veggies! This book has great ideas on how to make the best of my small area, I can't wait for spring!

This is a great basic book that covers many aspects of homesteading/ mini-farming. I originally borrowed it from the library. I decided it would be a wonderful resource manual to have so I bought it.
