Pay Dirt: How To Make 10,000 a Year From Your Backyard Garden is a good book. It was a bit of a struggle for me to get through though. It was much more of a business book than I was expecting. That being said Pay Dirt does have some information on vegetables and herbs that can be raised as cash crops. What I found the most interesting was the author’s take on marketing for selling at Farmer’s Markets. His idea for a Salsa System (page 199), I think is great. Basically take a few tomatoes, scallions, jalapenos, and cilantro in the correct amounts to make salsa. Package it in a nice basket along with a lime and a recipe and, voila an attractive way to sell your produce. I’d recommend this book to anyone looking to make a few bucks out of their garden or those looking to take their home produce business up a notch.
