Easy, fast, organic, affordable, sustainable and bountiful-the revolutionary Raised Row Garden method shared in this book is a vegetable gardener's dream come true. Using only soil, compost and mulch, the growing rows are simple to set up, require minimal maintenance, contain little to no weeds and produce amazing results year after year. No need for backbreaking tilling, and no need for expensive raised beds! For Jim and Mary Competti, their breakthrough idea came at a desperate time. They loved the idea of gardening, but with full-time careers and young children, they just didn't have the time, energy and budget their backyard vegetable garden demanded. Taking the best of the best from popular gardening methods they'd tried, the Raised Row Gardening system was born. Their first year succeeded beyond their wildest dreams as they harvested bushels of luscious, organic produce from a beautiful, weed-free garden. Over the past seven years, they have become the top authorities on the subject, helping thousands of gardeners work less and enjoy their gardens more. With this long-awaited, gorgeously illustrated book, Jim and Mary walk gardeners young and old through the steps and stages of gardening the Raised Row way, from easy first-year set up to planting and maintaining an incredibly productive garden that only gets better with time.
