Today I’ve got a copy of Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces by Gayla Trail. This book has a perfect combination of the information you need to grow your own food in containers, planting beds or community gardens, what to plant, how to care for it, and heaps of beautiful photographs to inspire you. I’m very intimidated by gardening and I find this book to be comforting. She covers everything I might like to grow but doesn’t bury me in too many options. There are even recipes, tips on keeping or preserving and a section on how to can. This book is both a great place to start, and has lots of information for those gardeners who are looking to polish their food growing skills. And if you don’t already follow it Gayla’s site You Grow Girl is full of great information. Gayla is one of those people whom I’ve known online for years and years. (I find myself saying that a lot lately!)
If you’d like to win a copy of You Grow Girl please leave a comment with this post. You’ve got until Tuesday, May 17th at 10am PST to enter, the fine print applies. Here is something to talk about if you’d like: Have you ever eaten anything you grew yourself? I am terrible with plants so the most I’ve managed is using my own rosemary and thyme, but my dad is a gardener and grows blueberries and wild strawberries (which are delicious). Ok, good luck! Closed! Thanks for entering.
