The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden, by Karen Newcomb


Grow tons of organic vegetables in tiny spaces and containers is the subtitle of this book, and I was excited about the description on the back cover: “to accommodate today’s lifestyles, a garden needs to fit into an extremely tiny plot, takes as little time as possible to maintain, require a minimum amount of water, and still produce prolifically.” Unfortunately, I was disappointed by the design of this revised edition of the bestseller classic on small-space gardening. While there are a few simple drawings on planning your garden, there are no colorful pictures that seem a necessity for this type of book. Instead, the hints and tips are given in a lackluster way that does nothing to motivate me to get started. Although there is much good advice to be found within its pages, the contents fall short of the beautifully simplistic cover. The bland style does not ideally cater to the needs of today’s busy and visually-oriented readers like myself.
