really liked it
bookshelves: misc-non-fiction

I am not a gardener, but I enjoyed this book as much as any Pollan work - and I really love his books. This book, like his others, is broader in scope than the title may suggest. Seemingly standing at his elbow as he tills the soil of his own garden we get the history of arboriculture, that of more specific cultivars, the philosophies evident in seed catalogs, the morality/efficacy of weeding and fighting pests, and more. A somewhat wistful but overall informative and enlightenting work.

Very well narrated by the author himself.
