Growing Stuff: An Alternative Guide to Gardening

Home Library: Growing Stuff

Trying to turn that black thumb green? Check out Growing Stuff: An Alternative Guide to Gardening ($16). For beginners or those trying to change their planting ways, this book offers simple, quick, and satisfying tips to help plant-challenged folks get fired up for mulch.

Unlike many "how-to" books, Growing Stuff is an easy read that spotlights unique and creative projects that one might never consider. Some backyard reference books may allude to fences covered in vines for privacy's sake, but this guide suggests growing a wall of sunflowers instead. Chock-full of brilliant ideas for your leafy friends, my favorite idea may be growing carrots in rain boots. Who woulda thunk, right? Adding to the charm of the innovative uses in the garden patch are the included recipes that call for items from your own produce section. Who knows . . . maybe you'll be hocking your beets at your local farmers market after the quick read!
