Are you tired of throwing away time, energy, and money on a perfectly manicured, water-guzzling, weed-producing lawn? Are you longing to feed your family in more healthful and eco-friendly ways but shocked by organic produce prices at the grocery store? Do you fantasize about growing your own food but hesitate to take on more than you can manage? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it's time for you to get down and dirty-and take the plunge that will please your taste buds and your pocket-book

In Small-Plot, High-Yield Gardening, Sal Gilbertie and Larry Sheehan will help you turn your sprawling suburban acreage or postage stamp-sized plot into a low-impact, all-organic, totally sustainable produce garden. You'll learn about the most effective natural fertilizers, drought-resistant cultivation methods, pest-repellent companion plantings, trends in heirloom herb and vegetable varieties, and raised-bed techniques for achieving maximum productivity in a limited space. You can even add a cutting garden so you'll always have fresh flowers on a kitchen table that's groaning under the weight of incomparably fresh vegetables seasoned with a variety of home-grown herbs.

Whether you're filling a 10' x 10' sandbox or digging up your 3,000-square-foot tennis court, any yard has the potential to produce a multi-crop bonanza. And anyone with a little soil and a lot of heart can do it
