After sending me her terrifying sweet potato pictures, Kerri also sent me this shot of her yard-long beans:
As she writes:
“And I thought you’d like to see this. Snake beans, per your advice! They’ve been GREAT!! And DELICIOUS!!
We’re sure getting a ton of beans!
Thank you so much for the recommendation!!”
When you plant the right plants, you’re almost guaranteed a harvest. When you try to grow typical Yankee favorites like Beefsteak tomatoes, rhubarb and acorn squash… you’re not.
I spent a long, long time testing plants to make sure I gave good recommendations in my book. It’s a cheat-sheet to Florida gardening and it’s unlike any other Florida gardening book on the market. I know – I’ve read most of them!
The problem with these other Florida gardening books is that they all approach Florida as a problem. Sand, nematodes, heat… blah blah blah.
After pointing these things out, they then try to shoehorn a bunch of hard-to-grow crops into Florida’s unique growing environment and help you fight your way around and protect these carpetbagging vegetables from a climate to which they’re unsuited!
My approach was completely different.
I tested crops from climates that shared similarities with Florida. Southeast Asia, Africa, South America, the Mediterranean.
Then I further focused on the crops that produced…
The Most Food for the LEAST Amount of Work!
Things like this:
That’s the way to do it!
The average Florida gardener has often spent years struggling.
My goal was to end that struggle and help them literally grow tons of food… which is in my subtitle.
Totally Crazy Easy Florida Gardening consistently sells an average of 6-7 copies every day.
I’m thrilled to see it getting out there and had no idea what a hit it would be when I published it.
It keeps getting very nice reviews:
Learn to grow with Florida, instead of against her… and you’ll have success.
Get a copy here. It’s the best $11 you’ll ever spend on your Florida gardening.
Book sales will never make me rich, but the great reports coming in from successful gardeners who have read my book… priceless!
Thank you, Kerri.
