In his best-seller, Square Foot Gardening, Mel Bartholomew showed gardeners his revolutionary system of planting in square foot sections to boost vegetable yields. Now in his follow-up, book CASH from Square Foot Gardening, Mel tells you everything you need to know to be a successful square foot gardener. Earn $5,000 or $10,000 or even $20,000 per year – even with limited time and space.
This book takes the Square Foot method beyond normal home use and shows how to produce an ABUNDANT HARVEST for profit, to feed a large family, or to provide food and/or business experience for a group or institution.
Marketing talk aside, I use square foot gardening at my house in my cinder block raised beds, and on Dave’s Homestead I am interested in developing about an acre into a market garden using the same techniques.
In cash from square foot gardening, Bartholomew gives tips on both the growing and the selling of garden products, and I have gotten good use from this book in developing a plan to make some money on my land.
This book shows some workable method to market garden in small spaces. I have had some small scale success with these methods, but I am looking for a larger scale experiment.
