Best of all, The Backyard Homestead reveals experts' secrets and proven techniques for making the most of the space you have, so you can enjoy fresh, natural, healthy homegrown food from even the tiniest outdoor area.

  • The skinny on thinning. Think "thinning" your plants is the best way to reap higher yields? Think again — then try the method described and watch your quantities of tomatoes, peppers, carrots, lettuces, and more explode!

  • Sweet secret. For sweeter salads and milder greens, be sure to pick your spinach, lettuce, kale, mache and other leafy crops at the right time.

  • Yikes — Yellow tomatoes! If you're tomato plants start begin fading to pale green or yellow, they need more of a certain nutrient. But be sure to add it only after the growth stage as described.

  • Got clay? If you're soil is hard-packed or crusty, give your seedlings a helping hand by using the "drag" technique — they'll get off to a better start, and you’ll get a better harvest!
