The wisdom is sometimes presented in a bit of a hodgepodge fashion - like when they describe drip irrigation at least three full times - but overall this book has been a thought-provoking gardening resource during the planning phase of converting a chaotic weed-infested hole into a vegetable garden.

This is the most wonderful garden book ever!

After just putting three 2" high raised beds on our front sidewalk planting strip. This book made it easy for me to determine what I wanted to grow there.

A must have for any gardener.

Similar to the Country Wisdom book, and filled with even more information, set up in easy to get to chapters, and lots of information. Combines some of the best books I've read, and throws in a lot of interesting information and how-to's.
