KIRKUS REVIEW

Still another grow-your-own book. Wickers believes anyone with 1200 square feet can be self-sufficient but even apartment dwellers limited to window-box crops can grow a tomato or two. Included here are the usual tips on compost and crop rotation, propagation and transplanting, even a bit on hydroponics (using chemical nutrients instead of soil). Besides individual advice on a wide range of fruits and vegetables, Wickers provides recipes for the fresh ingredients and procedures for storing and preserving them. Seminal for earthbound city folks.
