Best-selling author Jay shows health-aware urbanites how to grow organic produce in a tiny space. The Joy of Windowsill Organic Gardening
The kitchen table is laden with fresh and wholesome organic tomatoes, baby lettuces, summer squash, and fresh herbs. A scene from Country Homes or Ranch Living? Think again. Within the confines of our concrete jungles, a new breed of gardener has emerged, one that is willing to work every inch of available real estate to produce tiny porch gardens and patio crops.
Urban gardening calls for a new set of skills; the tools to get started, choosing the right crops, and their proper care. Organic farming innovator Jay North is a world-class developer of time tested organic practices. In his new book “The Windowsill Organic Gardener: Organic Growing for the Urban Gardener,” Jay offers a step-by-step guide to grow vegetables, herbs and edible flowers in a spaces as small as a windowsill box. His organic process is easy to follow and does not require complex equipment for hydroponics or high intensity lighting.
“I guarantee you,” says North, “that there is plenty of room in your apartment to grow what you love, year-round, no weeds and no pests. For thirty years I have developed tested methods for farmers and gardeners interested in a healthier way to grow food. The final frontier is the urban dwelling. After you try organic growing you’re hooked. You can’t wait to get home to see what bloomed or sprouted. It’s easy and it’s a lot of fun. Best of all, you can do all your farming in your pajamas!”
