Want great tasting veggies from your own garden but cringe at the thought of doing all that back-breaking work of maintaining your garden?
Don’t know how to start a garden?
If you're currently gardening with chemicals and have decided that gardening organically would give you plants with better nutrition and better taste but you don't want to hang up your tools for 7 years waiting for your soil to heal.
NO WORK URBAN FRONT YARD VEGETABLE GARDENING SIMPLIFIED by Joyce Zborower is a simplified, easy-to-follow guide for building and planting a new organic gardening bed in the ground right over an old chemical bed, a grassy spot that's never been planted before, a rocky area or even as container gardening in pots or in a raised garden bed so you won't have to bend over to harvest your goodies. And once the bed is ready and planted, any further work on your part is very minimal. It also provides vegetable gardening basics and small garden ideas for an urban garden in the backyard or as front yard gardens.
And there are full-color photos to show you exactly what to do.
Is it really "no work?" . . . No, but it's as close as you'll ever get without hiring someone to take care of it for you.

Here is an excerpt from No Work Urban Front Yard Vegetable Gardening Simplified :
. . . Many years ago when I was just beginning to learn about organic gardening, I read Ruth Stout’s classic No Work Garden Book in which she recommended 9-or-so inches of hay as a year-round mulch. I busted my you-know-what dragging home 80-90# bales of hay two at a time in the trunk of my car, somehow maneuvering them into my backyard and spreading the hay in my garden, only to find several months later that I had weeds in my yard that I had never seen before in my whole entire life! It took years to get rid of those weeds. In my opinion, in rural areas, hay is fantastic; it’s great for the plants. I just don’t want to have to deal with those field-weed-seeds again. There are other ways to get the “browns” needed for the beds.
One of our best sources for good, clean “browns” is that mountain of junk-mail that comes to your house every day. Discard the colored and/or glossy pages (possibly toxic ink), get yourself a quality paper shredder – the smaller the pieces, the quicker they will decompose – and simply run it through the shredder every day instead of throwing it into the garbage or recycling bin. In effect, it is being recycled – into your vegetables.
Same with newspapers. You’ll soon have more “browns” than you’ll know what to do with! Mix them with other organic matter when adding them to your bed as they tend to ‘mat’ when clumped together and may form a barrier for plant root growth. Or, use them on top as a final mulch.
Another is leaves. Gather them in the fall . . .
About the Author
Living in a second floor apartment in Chicago was okay for raising herbs and flowers on the window sill, but Joyce wanted a vegetable garden outdoors in the sunshine where she could grow tomatoes and potatoes and squash and beans. After moving to Arizona, she was able to plant a small garden in the back yard of her rented house but the organic gardening books she had at the time recommended tilling and weeding and etc., etc. She thought there must be a better way. There was.
After extensive searching and reading, she found what she was looking for . . . a method of planting and growing veggies with a minimum of work and a maximum of pleasure. It's in No Work Urban Front Yard Vegetable Gardening Simplified.
