New to gardening? New to organic gardening?
Unsure how to get started?
Robin Mittenthal, an Eagle Heights gardener and former organic farmer, has written a manual for new organic gardeners called "From the ground up," which provides descriptions of many basic garden tasks, explains where to get seeds and plants, discusses how to grow popular vegetables, and helps you identify and deal with common weeds and pests.
The guide is available free for you to download by clicking here: Free Garden Manual
Be aware that the guide is a fairly big file (18 megabytes) and fairly long (108 pages) -- you may just want to print out parts of it, such as the "quick reference guide to vegetable planting," pages 61-66, or "the absolute minimum amount you need to know, " pages 6-7.
