Book Review: From Container to Kitchen

Here's a new mini-review from ForeWord Reviews of D. J. Herda's latest creation, From Container to Kitchen: Growing Fruits and Vegetables in Pots.

Cooking. FROM CONTAINER TO KITCHEN: GROWING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IN POTS by D. J. Herda (New Society Publishers, 240 pages, softcover, $19.95, 978-0-86571-665-0): This book is designed for those residing in urban areas who wish to reap the benefits of organic, home gardening – without the convenience of a personal yard for cultivation. To help readers maximize growth and efficiency, Herda instructs regarding pot size and placement, soil type, light and water exposure, and harvesting. Those who wish to lead an organic lifestyle could expect to save seventy percent on fresh produce if they grow their own crops. Conversely, Herda also provides advice to those with a garden space in more rural locations who may also see merits to growing plants in containers.
