review 1: Such a helpful book for the beginner gardener. He encourages use of all available space and has real ideas for how use them. Granted, some things, like growing mushrooms, are a little too much for me to want to try, but his advice has helped my little garden to actually grow. It has a lot of resources for where to get seeds, how to grow things, how to deal with light, water, and soil issues, and how to live in a more sustainable way. Definitely a good read.
review 2: The author says that this book is for those in apartments, but really, I couldn't do most of the things he mentions - I can't have plants on my balcony. I appreciated the parts on reflected light, deciding what to grow and the part about containers, but that was about it. It even covers chickens an
... mored honeybees. If you're looking for something outside the mainstream thought of city growing, you might enjoy this. less

This book has some good ideas for apartment food production. I will refer to it again in the future.
This book had helpful advice for my inner gardener-stuck-in-an-apartment.
I wanted info on fermenting and this book doesn't have much on that topic
Okay, and informative, but too many words and not enough pictures. ;)
Lots of good info here on a variety of topics.
