Gardening is on the rise as the desire for fresh, delicious homegrown vegetables grows. Growing your own vegetables is an easy hobby for a variety of lifestyles, as it doesn't take a large amount of space to yield nutritious carrots or lettuce. All it takes is a bit of passion, care, and knowledge, and the rewards are soon there to enjoy.

Both down-to-earth and inspirational, Swedish gardener Karin Eliasson describes the charm of growing your own vegetables. Karin runs a kitchen garden and guesthouse in Spain, but her tips are adapted to suit most climates and soil types. In this gardening guide, she gives advice on how to grow, harvest, and store over 100 different vegetable varieties and suggests easy recipes you can use in your own kitchen. With instructive and beautiful photographs, she explains the step-by-step principles of organic gardening--soil, plant feeding, digging, hoeing, and watering--and shows how to combine blooming flowers and vegetables in attractive, colorful mixes to attract garden-friendly insects.

This book will not only arm you with the knowledge you need to get started, but also provide experienced and budding gardeners alike with a source for inspiration while they enjoy the beautiful photographs and tips on garden design.
