Newspaper, Pennies, Cardboard & Eggs For Growing A Better Garden by Roger Yepsen (Rodale Inc. 2007)(635). This is gardening advice and money-saving tips using recycled and repurposed items found around the home. It features especially good cold frame designs. My rating: 7/10, finished 2008.

this wasn't what i hoped it would be. the projects may have turned out just fine, but they were more complicated/time consuming than i thought they'd be. i did get a couple of tidbits out of it, but a friend wanted me to look up how to get rid of slugs and the book made no mention of them at all. instead, it mentioned pests i have never heard of. oh well.

I hate reading reference books that are this badly organized. The information is there, but it's not "new" information promised on the cover. Most of it is easily obtained from better-organized sources. The entire book is written like one of those collections of advice columns. It's enjoyable to browse through it, but god help you if you need an answer to a specific question.

The best way I can describe this book is that it's perfect bathroom book for gardeners: open it up to a random page, read a one-page description of something you might try, go "huh" out loud, put book down and immediately forget what it was.

It had some good suggestions. Probably would've gotten more out of it if I'd spent more time with it, but it never really peaked my interest.

This was a fascinating little book that gives all kinds of ways to garden. I will certainly give some of the things a try. This is a book that belongs in every gardener's library.

Lots of good ideas. I think however that having so many means that few of them are explored in detail. The season extenders were quite helpful.
