it was amazing

I'm a big gardener, have been for years. If you're looking for a how-to manual on growing your own food, this book isn't it. It's more of a historical record of community gardens with a spotlight on how these resources reward the people who participate in them.

The pictures of the White House garden are lovely but the plans would be impractical for your typical backyard gardener. If you like Bo Obama, you'll like this book. It appears that the dog spends more time in the garden than the White House chefs.

Looking forward to trying some of the recipes as my veggies come into season.
