Feed your garden and your garden will feed you.

This final installment in The Ultimate Guide to Soil series walks new and experienced gardeners through using dozens of amendments for fertilizing, mulching, and conditioning the organic garden. Hess starts with traditional materials like compost and cover crops, branches out into permaculture goodies such as biochar and hugelkultur, and comes full-circle with both urban and rural waste products including cardboard and humanure.

Based on a decade growing all of her family’s vegetables using organic techniques, the author steers readers away from potential hazards like weedy straw and heavy-metal-imbued inks. Then she suggests both quick fixes and slow-but-sure options for integrating found and purchased amendments into troubled ground to create a garden paradise.

Don’t miss this conclusion to a series that has been described as “Easy, useful, and homestead tested.” You’ll recoup the cost of this book with your first nutrient-dense bunch of homegrown asparagus and the increased flavors in your existing garden will be icing on the cake.
