Summary "For anyone who's ever wanted to grow their own food, comes gardening guru Carson Arthur's honest, and often hilarious, advice for any and every skill level and space. Everyone appreciates the glory of a fresh vine-ripened vegetable, but how do you successfully grow your own? Nobody wants to see their vegetable dreams die the tragic death of a #gardenfail! That is where Carson Arthur comes in, with a wealth of knowledge to guide your gardening decisions and set you up for success in any space. Whether it's a backyard, a rooftop, a balcony or even just a window ledge, this book has everything you need to know about sunlight, space, soil, seeds, and setup. Six years ago, Carson bought a small plot of land two hours outside of the city to try his hand at having his own farm. As a gardener by trade, and with a childhood spent on an apple farm, he had a little experience to back him up! Now he's sharing all of that in Vegetables, Chickens & Bees. Carson provides very real advice on how to choose the right garden for you, how to prepare your dirt and seeds, and gives step-by-step guidance for 20 key veggies you can grow--as well as how to dodge the many pitfalls out there (like checking about the locations of cable wires and gas lines before you start digging up your yard.) Then he shares his favourite recipes for those vegetables so you can have delicious options for everything you grow. Also included are primers on raising your own chickens and keeping your own bees." -- ONIX annotation.
