This is the third “Real World User Guide” I have written and it faithfully follows the same focus as the previous two:
A concise and easy to follow real-world user guide, loaded with tips-and-tricks which make a quick and real difference to what it is you are trying to achieve.
Over the last 20 years, I have gathered together many great tips from my family’s vegetable gardening exploits, fellow growers’ advice and also from my own personal experiences of seeing what does and doesn’t work.
I have spent a little longer on tomato growing in this Real World User Guide as I have always had a bit of a thing for tomato growing, and in fact, I would even go so far to say I am a bit of a tomato growing maniac :o) .... Early Cascade, Legend, Golden Nugget, Garden Peach or Champion, I care not which, I love and grow them all!!
I then share some general growing tips I have learnt about the other vegetable plants and herbs that I grow every year, such as peppers, broccoli, carrots and Swiss chard and lastly, I mention a few general good-practice seed storage tips and tricks.
Of course these days many vegetable plants are available to us ready to plant-out, but nothing quite compares to the thrill of being involved with your produce right from the start...
In fact for me, nothing in the wonderful world of gardening is more fulfilling than going all the way!
A hardcore e-biker since 2008. I ride throughout the Swiss winters. I sold over 250 copies of the "Real World User Guide to ebikes" on ebay before I discovered Smashwords :)
I am also a single handicap golfer and I used to be a successful ski instructor, which has lead me to try and find a way to help other golfers get better as quickly and as painlessly as possible. (Which is easy, just read my guide :)
I am also an avid vegetable and tomato grower and have for most of my life been involved with either my parents vegetable patch or my own kitchen garden.read more
