I enjoyed this book. Anyone who gardens will appreciate the great lengths this man goes to plant his garden. At times it seems extreme, but nonetheless entertaining.

The reader goes on a gardening journey with Alexander and all the adventures and misadventures it entails and there are many!! His family doesn't understand, he has dirt that is useless, critters and bugs trying to eat and terrorize his crops, then the endless battle against the critters, bugs and of course weeds. Then the ultimate delemia of what to do with all the produce once he has a sucessfull garden??!!
