The Comic Book Guide To Growing Food

In 2023, I think I want to grow my own garden…

I’m sure most of us have thought about this. 


What if you lack a green thumb?

What if you have no idea about the amount of different tomatoes at a store?

Do you buy herbs already grown at home depot?

What about soil?

If I’m being honest… How does one grow anything?

Yup, I’m confused.

Growing a vegetable garden is intimidating. Many of us have at least a few houseplants, some of which just seem to give up on life and wilt away. Based on this experience, you might ask yourself, “How could I possibly keep an entire garden of plants alive, let alone succeed at growing and harvesting herbs and vegetables that I can actually eat?” Fret not! For The Comic Book Guide to Growing Food stars Mia, an everyday lady, just like you or me, who has the same reservations and faltering perceptions about tending a fruitful garden.

On the topic of easing worries: Behold, this book is a graphic novel! The text is limited, but highly informative, and the illustrations are delightful and accurate. The characters are likable and relatable, the story believable, and the pace allows you to read the whole thing in one reasonable session.

By the end of the book, your confidence will match Mia’s, and with this book alone, you really will be equipped with enough knowledge to at least make one salad dinner- Fresh! If you’re feeling lost at any point in the process, a handy index, further reading section, and cheat sheet will guide you right along. 

If you are looking for a way to ease yourself into growing food, The Comic Book Guide to Growing Food is the way to go. Get ready to get a little bit dirty and take your first steps toward your own little renewable food source.

I really love the humor and simplicity of this book. When I first started with the idea of having my own vegetable garden I did what anyone would do. I asked on social media! And so many kind, wonderful people immediately help me get started. Once the day was over, I felt accomplished, but then I had a feeling of “now what?” Rather than go back and bug everyone I looked for this book I received after going to a gardening lecture held at my local library and realize=\\\\\


“Wait, I can do this. I think I can do this…no I can do this”  And do this I did.

Needless to say, I’ve been busy.
