Huw shows how to guarantee early success by starting off young plants on a windowsill. He suggests what to grow in each part of the bed and provides alternative vegetables to swap in or out depending on what you like eating.

Huw Richards is a man on a mission. He wants everyone to grow their own fruits and vegetables, and he wants to prove that you don't need much money (or even your own garden) to do so. Grow Food for Free shows you how to produce no-cost, low-maintenance fruits and vegetables. Learn about the space you need and how to prepare it, how to make your own compost, how to get your first set of seeds, and strategies to multiply the seeds you have. Can't afford a raised bed? Try repurposing an old wooden pallet. Don't have money to buy lots of different seeds? Look in your kitchen for food that you can plant. Don't have a garden? See whether anyone in your community will let you grow vegetables in their garden. Whatever you're worried about, there is a low-cost way to overcome it. Once you've found a good site, Huw recommends his favorite low-maintenance, high-yield crops, covering first annuals, then perennials (the holy grail of free food growing, since, if well maintained, perennial crops will provide new harvests year after year). Key plant maintenance instructions are provided throughout the book, as well as how to fend off common pests and diseases. Discover how you can barter, borrow, repurpose, and propagate your way to a bountiful harvest of fruit and vegetables, joining the food-growing revolution without burdening your bank balance!
