"There are two kinds of vegetable gardeners. There are those who garden in beds of some kind, and for whom John Jeavons's classic How to Grow More Vegetables is the ultimate foundation book, a must-read, and an essential reference. Then there are those who don't garden in beds, for whom How to Grow More Vegetables is still a must-read and an essential reference. The full How to Grow More Vegetables (and Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops) Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagine. The title actually understates the contents. The book is about how to grow pretty nearly all your food and your garden's fertilizer on a modest amount of land." - Carol Deppe, author of The Resilient Gardener-Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain times.  We use this book for the local community garden and follow the guidelines of Jeavons in our demonstration garden.  John Jeavons, 8th edition,
