Is having a vegetable garden part of your New Year’s resolution? It isn’t too shocking that many are looking for ways to eat healthier and save money. One of the best ways to do this is by growing your food. While it is very rewarding, vegetable gardening can be stressful for those who have never gardened before, especially since there is a lot you need to consider – ranging from the quality of your home soil to what seeds you should consider growing for your local growing zone. When I started my first vegetable garden, I was thankful to have various resources in hand, even if some weren’t very clear (the reason I sometimes have issues with Pinterest).
Knowing that gardening can be challenging, I am always excited when I get an opportunity to review a new gardening book. Not only am I excited to help others, but I always find something to improve my gardening skills, especially when it comes to vegetables I have not grown. Recently, I got a chance to review a complimentary copy of a new gardening book designed for gardeners of all levels – The Complete Guide to Vegetable Garden: Create, Cultivate, and Care For Your Perfect Edible Garden by GardeningKnowHow.com. After reading this book during holiday travel, I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys!
