Gertrud Franck worked out her own system using living mulch, companion planting and other unique solutions deriving entirely from observations during her lifetime of raising the family’s food. The book is inspirational yet is also flawed in a way common to how-to veggie garden texts: it assumes that what has worked so excellently in one microclimate and on one soil is universally applicable. Some of the photographs in the original were in colour; these have been reduced to black and white in the interest of having a reasonable file size.
