Are you considering vegetable gardening in your own backyard? As someone who has been gardening for a handful of years (mostly in pots and a small part of our yard), I can say it can sometimes be quite overwhelming. When I first started, it was mostly trial and error, learning some things from books and various websites. I can say without a doubt that having reference guides has been one of the greatest things for my plants, especially when it comes to getting a good harvest of vegetables. As someone who wants to learn more about organic gardening, I was excited when I got a new book about vegetable gardening to review – The Vegetable Gardening Book: Your Complete Guide to Growing an Edible Organic Garden from Seed to Harvest by Joe Lamp’L.

The Vegetable Gardening Book: Our Thoughts
Honestly, I have to say that The Vegetable Gardening Book: Your Complete Guide to Growing an Edible Organic Garden from Seed to Harvest has to be one of my top five gardening books for beginners. It has everything a beginner gardener needs to know, from picking their spots to the things you wouldn’t even think about, such as picking the right mulch.
I also love that the author has a variety of pictures that get into the nitty gritty of gardening, such as how to protect your garden from bad weather properly. It goes into general care and tips to make sure you succeed, as well as how to make the most popular vegetable thrive.
If you could only pick up one gardening book this year, I have to say that The Vegetable Gardening Book: Your Complete Guide to Growing an Edible Organic Garden from Seed to Harvest should be it! This really is the perfect beginner’s guide for gardening!
