Hi All

I have written a handbook...It started out as an A4 leaflet but grew into a75 page manual with 80 images.

The topic, something that's very close to my heart...Raised Vegetable Beds.

It's in ebook form and I've given the book it's own website as well as publishing it on Amazon and Lulu. It comes in e.pub-pdf and .mobi so can be read on mobile devices as well as laptops and home computers.

I really enjoyed writing the content and it makes me realise just how much fun making your own beds and growing healthy organic crops can be. I had help of course..I got a lot of the images off avid growers around the world

Check out the first chapter on the website... http://raisedvegbeds.com

For those of you that sent me images, please get int touch and I'll send you a free copy as a big thankyou!

Thanks for the kind words Maeve and Stonehead, ...I'm inspired and planning book number 2 now!.... not sure what it's going to be about yet but something will spring to mind... It'll have to be something else about organic gardening...

congratulations on publishing your book. it looks very impressive. I have looked through the first chapter and it appears to include all the essentials. It took me nearly forty years to produce mine but i have no pictures, just words based on my own experience with a scientific background and some common sense thrown in.

Thanks Michael, stonehead and Maeve for your kind words...Sales are good, I even had a customer from France too..

I have also included "Klaus Laitenberger's Sowing and Planting dates for Vegetables" too as an added extra.... which is an invaluable addition to any gardeners plan for getting the best crops.
