One of the few gardening books in our house, because it has so much excellent information about growing your own crops.

Everything in this book, I either do, will do, or want to do! If I could I would go waay out of my way to see any garden by Ed Smith.
This book is so right in its method, clarity and usefullness. The high yield system addresses the needs of the Santa Clara garden perfectly!
Lawns are a thing of the past! Grow food, Free Farm!!
