Henry's Mitchell's writing "combined the cadences of the Book of Common Prayer with the timing of Jack Benny. He was humble, cantankerous, ironic, and forbearing. He is sorely missed"—Allen Lacy
In the sequel to The Essential Earthman, the Washington Post columnist offers a harvest of sharp observations and humorous adventures gathered during a year in his garden, along with much down-to-earth advice on horticulture.
Henry Mitchell, who died in November 1993, was one of America's most beloved garden writers. A man of contradictions, Mitchell built landing platforms for dragonflies after seeing one drown in his pool and never stepped on an ant intentionally. He also railed mightily at fools and the elements. This is his last book--adapted from his weekly "Earthman" columns in the Washington Post.
