Thriving Veggies.com To Share Garden Layout Options In New Book
Thriving Veggies.com, the "healthy harvesting" concept of gardening consultant John Keisling, is poised to release a book on raised bed gardens. The book will be released in the Kindle format on Amazon.com.
A raised vegetable garden is of particular interest to small gardeners with limited space because it provides a way to produce enough herbs and vegetables for the household, promoting self-reliance and healthy eating. Using a raised bed eliminates unsuitable and contaminated soil because the bed will be filled with top soil enriched with compost or other organic supplements. The bed itself is constructed from rot-resistant, toxin-free lumber.
Raised bed gardening is more efficient because energy and resources are concentrated into a smaller planting area, promoting intercropping that may yield 10 times as much in produce and with a greater variety than traditional gardening techniques. Shallow-rooting beans, deeply-rooted beets and vine-growing peas and tomatoes can be grown in a raised bed garden measuring no more than 100 square feet or smaller. The raised bed garden is sustainable year-round with succession planting where a variety of seedlings are introduced upon harvesting mature herbs and vegetables.
"At this time my staff and I are focusing on how to help beginners and intermediates with vegetable gardening specifically. At some point though, we will expand to gardening in general, sharing the knowledge and experience we have accumulated over the years," says Keisling, a landscape gardener and consultant for more than 20 years. The book will complement the farm-to-table and healthy eating initiative that is viewed as an important strategy in battling obesity and many chronic ailments.
"We want our website to ultimately be a conversation focused on providing resources to small gardeners who have limited gardening experience and others who may want to try more sustainable gardening strategies" added the owner.
