Few people today know how to grow the fruits and vegetables they eat. Even fewer understand the importance of growing them organically. Many of those who do appreciate the value of organic produce are dissuaded from pursuing an organic garden because of the exorbitant cost of commercial organic fertilizers. Dr. Merrill points out that organic gardening does not have to be an expensive undertaking; rather, anyone can garden the organic way at little or no expense simply by generating valuable earthworm castings from their kitchen and paper waste and by taking advantage of animal manures that are available at no cost in most areas of the United States. This book tells you where to find these valuable organic resources and, more importunely, how to use them in your wonderful organic garden. The book is full of additional gardening information, including watering techniques, the correct way to plant seeds, and methods to control pests and insects without using toxic sprays and poisons. Happy gardening!

About the Author:

Dr. Merrill was raised in rural southern Humboldt County in Northern California. He graduated from the University of California–Berkeley with a degree in physiology in 1959 and received his MD degree from the University of Southern California in 1963. After completing a urology residency and an NIH Special Fellowship in urology at the University of Minnesota Health Sciences in Minneapolis, he returned to Northern California in 1973 and completed his career as chief of urology at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Martinez, California. Dr. Merrill has written extensively on nonmedical as well as medical subjects. His latest book, Gardening the Organic Way, is a reflection of his lifelong interest in sustainable gardening utilizing only inexpensive, readily available, chemical-free fertilizers, many of which are derived, in part, from the castings of earthworms. Dr. Merrill and his wife, Tina, live in Martinez's Alhambra Valley in the San Francisco East Bay. They have two daughters, Amelia and Ann. Dr. Merrill's hobbies include writing, gardening, worm farming, winemaking, and fly-fishing.
