Gets the small right! Good advice specific to apartment dwellers & renters but principles are great for everyone growing in containers or small spaces. The format is a calendar of chores, each featuring an herb of the month. Starting in November is unconventional, though with the supplemental information on soil and worm composting makes it a good place to start. Points for: Seasonal Recipes, Herb of the Month, Foraging Tips, Succinct plans for laying out growing areas on a balcony. I like the emphasis on sustainable options and reused/upcycled containers. Includes numerous ‘hot to’s’ including making a sub-irrigated planter (aka Self-watering).
