Giveaway: What’s Wrong with My Vegetable Garden?

August 1, 2012
I could not have gotten my hands on this book during a better time.  First of all I just LOVE that it provides organic solutions to common gardening problems.  Now that I keep the bees, this is so incredibly important for their population to thrive in our yard.  
This book is very well laid out and organized.  It begins with an overview of the all the necessary requirements to make a vegetable garden successful.  Next, the vegetables are broken down into their own section, “Plant Portraits”. Here you can find photos, descriptions, growing requirements, planting techniques and problem solving suggestions unique to that particular vegetable.  Then the book transitions to 70 pages or so dedicated to eradicating pests and disease from your garden.  The book’s final section provides organic solutions to common problems including soil and watering requirements and crop rotation.
My favorite part of the book is the photography.  Numerous photos accompany every topic and plant throughout.  Better than illustrations in my mind, these photos do speak volumes.  I find this book to be a wonderful resource for myself and I know that I have already had to use it to find new organic ways to treat  powdery mildew, aphids and beetles.

Finally, Tilly’s Nest is proud to partner with Timber Press in their GPS Campaign. The GPS, or Garden Problems Solver, allows readers a chance to ask the experts their own gardening questions.

  1. Oh wow, looks like the perfect book for us vegetable gardeners!! I too love the idea of photos, with so many symptoms looking the same, it is hard to tell with a sketch.
    I'll have to look for it up here. Having a dog, cats and chickens I would like organic means to control problems with my crops and flowers. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hey Melissa 🙂

    The book from Timber Press that I'd like to read is Handmade Garden Projects! But your site has been such an inspiration as I have started my own little coop. I was trying to incubate eggs but sadly only one has hatched. I have a lone chick but will probably order some to keep him/her company. Thanks for your site :).

  3. I would love to read Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yard by Jessi Bloom. I'm getting ready to redesign the back yard at my new house and I'd like for my girls to be happy there too! Thanks for the chance to win! Hannah Fitch, fitchhannah(at)gmail(dot)com

  4. What a great giveaway! I love Timber Press books. I will definitely check out the 'Whats Wrong with My Vegetable Garden' even if I don't win it and one other book I would like to get is the 'Beautiful No-Mow Yards' book. Grass is okay in some areas, but other plants are so much more gratifying, especially here on Cape Cod! I own 'Free Range Chicken Gardens' so I must make the time to get back to reading it.
    Thanks Melissa for the giveaway and your blog! <3

  5. I want the chicken garden, kids in the garden, and the no-mow yard!!!! I really need the whats wrong book, we have not had a good crop year. Thanks for the chance!

  6. Good morning!

    Why Grow That When You Can Grow This? – looks like a good one to pick up when it's released.

    Still tossing around the idea of chickens here at my home. Waiting til my own little "chickens" get a bit older 🙂

  7. I have had "Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yardby Jessi Bloom" on my wish list for awhile now. My chickens have Free Range of my yard and have been eating all the buds on my tomato & pepper plant, so I'm not getting any veggies 🙁
