Less of a guidebook and more of an inspirational memoir, this book is the perfect read for any urban gardener who would like to step up their game and produce more food for their table. This woman made it a personal goal to grow at least 75% of her own food from her garden. This challenge did not extend to her family, but in the end, they benefitted as well and also ate a large portion of their meals from the garden. The author lives in California and has a longer growing season than I do in New England, but even so, I found it fun and inspirational. I liked the additional touch of recipes sprinkled throughout the book. Cooking and gardening go hand in hand! A nice touch.
