I checked out this book in winter with spring and my garden woefully on my mind. It cannot come soon enough. There is so much to do and I am dying on the vine inside! I checked out this book and a huge stack of other related titled. THIS ONE, amazingly, shockingly, turned out to be one of the best of the lot!! I actually read it cover to cover (ok, so I skipped the last chapter about government funding & projects - sue me!). I thought this is an excellent title for a first time gardener, a new homeowner interested in starting a spring garden, or even someone laid-off from a job or otherwise without work and wanting to use their valuable yard real estate to generate food for the family. It was a very unpretentious read. Not stuffy or overly complicated. It DID give me info I didn't know (such as lots of info about wattle construction or how to use fallen sticks in my neighborhood) and every now and then glossed over things I truly want more info on. But then again this just means I need to go search books out on THOSE topics. Right? I was especially fond of her free organic additives section... where she breaks down various animal manures (many free if you call around) by amount of nutrients they provide your soil.
