Gardening When It Counts: Growing Food In Hard Times

by Steve Solomon

Gardening When It Counts helps readers rediscover traditional low-input gardening methods to produce their own healthy food. Designed for readers with no experience, and applicable to most areas in the English-speaking world except the tropics and hot deserts, this book shows that any family with access to garden land - anywhere from between 3 and 5,000 sq. ft. - can halve their food costs using a growing system requiring just the odd bucketful of household waste water, perhaps two hundred dollars worth of hand tools - and about the same amount spent on supplies - by working an average of two hours a day during the growing season.
