Grow Great Grub is an excellent introduction to edible gardening highlighting small space/ container gardening. Gayla offers great advice and I still refer to her books and website after so many years of gardening. Her writing is non pretentious and encourages an experimental, stress-free environment. Beautiful photos!

This is an amazing book! Gayla is teaching us how to grow using what most families have access to. No fancy, and very expensive, tools; no gardening experience necessary. Then after the harvest there are recipes!

Thank you SPL for carrying her book! I now own it :)

For those organic gardeners who lack proper space for a garden. Author Gayla Trail encourages gardeners to use everyday containers to grow their own food. Fun examples include growing herbs in discarded soup cans, and even growing potatoes in a large trash can or small bucket. Perfect for those readers who have little or no space for a garden.
