Shelves: prettystuff, garden
Lots of pretty pictures and a surprising amount of extremely practical advice on designing your garden layout, building raised beds, putting in paths, and training fruit trees into all kinds of crazy shapes - almost none of which I imagine using in my own potager, which exists on the extreme "informal" end of the spectrum.

My problem with this type of book (the "how to make veggies pretty" genre) is the heavy reliance on "ornamental" strains of vegetables, which may be pretty but don't look very

This book is definitely for the intermediate to advanced gardener. It's a bit all over the place - not really an instruction manual and not quite a picture book. It gives a bit of history, a bit of instruction and left me feeling a bit like I still didn't know what was going on or if I could use any of the ideas in the book. I think it needs a bit more focus, but I'm willing to come back to it once I become a bit more of a seasoned gardener.

Not as helpful to Colorado's climate as I had hoped, but still a good read...
