Summary Market Farming Success is an indispensable guide to market gardening and farming for those in the business of growing and selling food, flowers, herbs, or plants. Condensing decades of growing experience from every part of the United States and Canada, Lynn Byczynski - editor and publisher of Growing for Market - identifies crucial areas that usually trip up beginners and shows growers how to avoid common obstacles.
