“The gardening book that got me started many years ago in my backyard was The Self-Sufficient Gardener by John Seymour, Dolphin Books, 1980.
I took a plot of red clay and turned it into fertile Deep Beds growing a host of vegetables in a small space. Seymour suggests plants that do well in our climate along with things to do in the Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall gardens. Along with organic pest and disease control. After all these years I keep the book close by for reference. Best home gardening book I’ve ever read.”
