Description
Chris Bird does all his vegetable gardening in thickly planted raised beds, framed in 2 x 12 lumber, and filled with custom-blended soil. The results are both eye-opening and mouthwatering. Moreover, his method requires so little work that you'll feel guilty when you try it. CUBED FOOT GARDENING demonstrates how to build these simple, inexpensive beds and how to grow the most popular vegetables in them, using innovative tricks and techniques that would not be possible to employ in a conventional garden. It explains the author's revolutionary system for growing sweet corn, white asparagus, and giant tomatoes that win contests every year. It also shows you how to contain "reckless" cucumbers, grow trellis-contained pumpkins, avoid "thinning" seedlings altogether, and mix the perfect soil. CUBED FOOT GARDENING is filled with countless other ingenious, home-proven techniques that all make vegetable gardening efficient and fun.
