So, you decided to begin a garden. But you live in a place with no yard or even a balcony? Plus, money is tight right now? No problem with Apartment Kitchen Gardening by your side.
This book feels like your best friend is speaking directly to you about how to begin your gardening adventure! From lettuce to tomatoes to potatoes and even mushrooms, all the basics to begin growing your favorite vegetables are included. The author even explains the container size, soil composition, and watering required for each type of vegetable.
I especially admire the author’s DIY thriftiness. You can grow mushrooms in a trash bag or use empty toilet paper rolls to contain bean roots. Using the bottom of a 2-liter soda bottle painted like a pig for a container is brilliant! So is planting leftover fresh herbs to resurrect them.
It is helpful to read the book on a Kindle if you are not British. There are some words that will confuse most Americans, like biro for pen and chicory for endive. However, the recommended vegetable seeds are all available here in the States.
Apartment Kitchen Gardening is a great choice for anyone looking to invest in a garden regardless of the size of your residence or your wallet. 4.5 stars!
