How To Guzzle Your Garden
Jackie French published How To Guzzle Your Garden in 1999 and hooray for it being included in the Premier's Reading Challenge list.
This book shows kids how to have fun while growing their own food, an especially apt book at this time with so much media dealing with the increasing obesity problem with children.
Step by step the book takes kids through how to set up a garden, what to plant in which temperate area, what to plant where and how to tell when fruit/vegies a ready for picking.
Container gardening gets the once and twice over, with details on how to grow goodies in old shoes, spuds in buckets, tubs, computers and anything you could possible think of and then some.
Jackie has even included the how-to on growing a choko vine over an old outside dunny.
Now I just need an old outside dunny...
