I recommend this book

Evening all!
I asked a few days ago about books to help me with a new no dig veg plot. I bought this one for now and I’m really enjoying it! As a beginner I’m finding it  full of info on creating beds and really helpful descriptions on veg and planting timelines. Anyway, here are a few pics, thought it might be useful for anyone pondering a purchase!

    I’ve never had good success with sowing carrots in trays and transplanted.

    He does recommend they are sown direct as they are more likely to fail/fork when transplanted.

    Carrots don't transplant. ;)

    I've often transplanted carrots sown a few to each seed module. It's a good way to get an early start.

    Looks like a good book to get you started!

    Growing seasons start earlier or later each year especially with climate change, when to sow, when the conditions are right.
