The biggest mistake gardeners make each season is starting out too big and then quickly realizing their large plot requires too much weeding, watering, and backbreaking labor. Vertical gardening guarantees a better outcome from the day the trowel hits the soil--by shrinking the amount of "floor" space needed and focusing on climbing plants that are less prone to insects, diseases, and animal pests. Notable author and gardener Derek Fell has tried and tested thousands of varieties of vegetables, flowers, and fruits and recommends the best plants for space-saving vertical gardening. His grow-up, grow-down system also shows which ground-level plants make good companions underneath and alongside climbing plants. Best of all, many of Fell's greatest climbers and mutually beneficial plants are available in seed packets in every local garden center. With a mix of DIY and commercially available string supports, trellises, pergolas, raised beds, skyscraper gardens, and topsy-turvy planters, the vertical garden system reduces work, increases yields, makes harvesting easier, and can be practiced in spaces as small as a container or a one-by-four-foot strip. Vertical Gardening features 100 color photos of the author's own vertical methods and showcases beautiful, troublefree perennials, shrubs, vegetables, annuals, and fruit perfect for this new, rewarding way to garden.

Calculate the return on investment for your vegetable garden and get the most bang for your gardening bucks! Get the most return on investment from your garden by calculating which vegetables, fruits, and herbs give the highest payback. To make the selection process of what to grow easy, Mel Bartholomew--author of the best-selling Square Foot Gardening--has a new book to maximize your garden's ROI. High-Value Veggies is an easy-to-use reference book helping gardeners choose edibles that make the most financial and spatial sense. Explore the thought processes and math behind growing vegetables and herbs in order to craft the best plan for your produce. Maximizing your garden's yield is no simple task. Consider the tomato; most people think it's a safe bet for a high-yield return - but which variety? Heirloom tomatoes typically cost $5 or more a pound at farmers' markets. You can beat that price by growing Cherokee Purples from seed at a net cost of only 80 cents per pound. If you plant purchased seedlings, the cost will go up to about $1 a pound--and that's including the cost of water and fertilizer. High-Value Veggies makes this cost evaluation for each vegetable easy. Whether you're interested in growing tomatoes, pumpkins, cabbage, corn, or anything else, it's wise to consider the invisible dollar signs sown along the way. The relative ROI for each veggie in High-Value Veggies is calculated based on dollar value generated for each square foot planted. You don't need to be a math whiz to plan your next vegetable garden. Bartholomew has done the math for you, and he has cost-effective answers.

Small Plot, Big Harvest is a bright new gardening book for people with little space but big ambitions. Forget waiting for years for a spot in a community garden: This book celebrates what the vast majority of people have-a little bit of patio or garden that is nonetheless precious to them. Rather than bemoan this limited growing space, this book actively embraces it and explores the advantages, leaving readers in no doubt of the potential their garden has to offer. Enticing seasonal crop planners for 10x10 foot (3x3 meter) and 6.5x6.5 foot (2x2 meter) plots, and for planters and mini raised beds, demonstrate the possibilities. The artworks of each crop are drawn to scale to show the correct number of plants in three planting schemes: a standard mix, an easy-to-grow selection, or a gourmet selection of fruit and vegetables. Follow-on charts show substitutes to increase choice and variety, making this the easiest of garden design packages for new gardeners. Key topics such as soil preparation, watering, feeding, sowing, transplanting, and extending the seasons are presented in the opening chapter, ensuring the book covers every aspect of growing your own. The bulk of the book is made up of attractive profiles of 60 vegetables and 15 fruits, delivered with step-by-step photographs showing each stage of growth and clear instructions. These are followed by gallery spreads to help gardeners choose the best varieties to grow from seed or source as plants. The Problem Solver is a useful troubleshooting section to help gardeners nip problems in the bud, with a clear directory of common weeds, pests, and diseases. Useful resources and a glossary of terms complete the guide.

Faces masked, dressed in black, and forcefully attacking the symbols of capitalism, Black Blocs have been transformed into an antiglobalization media spectacle. But the popular image of the window-smashing thug hides a complex reality. Francis Dupuis-Déri outlines the origin of this international phenomenon, its dynamics, and its goals, arguing that the use of violence always takes place in an ethical and strategic context. This text has been translated into English for the first time and is completely revised and updated to include the most recent Black Bloc actions at protests in Greece, Germany, Canada, and England, and its role in the Occupy movement and the Quebec student strike. It lays out a comprehensive view of the Black Bloc tactic and locates it within the anarchist tradition of direct action.
