I preordered this book because I wanted to make sure I got to read it before spring. It's filled with great information for those of us who haven't garden before or maybe failed in the past. He gives specific information about the varieties of vegetables he plants, how he plants, how big his garden is and the space necessary for different kinds of plants. He also shares the mistakes he's made over the years. I enjoyed reading about the animals eating off his garden and how he solved this issue. I have already ordered my seeds and my cabot strawberry plants. I'm hoping my garden turns out this year, especially the strawberry plants. Last year I got one strawberry off my plant all year. When I went to eat it, a wasp had beaten me to the punch.
I have to tell you that one of my cousins showed up at a family meeting with the cookies. Oh, my goodness! They even beat my mom's ginger snaps! We have been making hers for years and sharing them with everyone... but now am worried that the sorghum cookie recipe will turn into the favorite!Love the descriptions of gardening and I use them for my garden. Very practical and well presented.But, that doesn't beat the cookie recipe!!
At least half of the book is devoted to various recipes. I didn't want a cookbook. Enjoyed the garden section.
I need all the help I can get in the garden, and loved this book. Great item - it was exactly what it said it was, came in great packaging, and I was very pleased with my purchase.
Interesting. I collect recipe books so getting recipes was a surprise. Good service.I am a person of few words and I said them
