Turn an urban yard or balcony into your personal vegetable farm.

Vegetable gardening is back! Concern about the environment and the desire to eat food unpolluted by chemicals, to buy local and to be thrifty are some of the reasons. Urbanites who have never grown a thing are now eager to try to cultivate vegetables, herbs and fruit in back and front yards, on rooftops and on balconies -- in any suitable space they can find.

Incredible Edibles is for anyone who's thinking: "I'd love to try growing some herbs and vegetables. But is it too difficult? Do I have the space? Or the time?" Sonia Day focuses on edible plants that can be easily grown in a city setting, many of which are seldom featured in gardening books. Her clear, concise advice is perfect for those who don't have the time to wade through a gardening encyclopedia or to learn by trial and error.

This is a cute little book and a quick read!!! The book is full of great pictures and quick tips ranging from difficulty, growing conditions, harvesting and storing.

In a relatively small book, this has a lot of useful information.
