Editorial Reviews

Tap the memories of an avid gardener and chances are that she or he will fond recollections of planting with their parents or grandparents. Jeff Hutton's Rock, Dirt, Worms, & Weeds teaches adults and kids to build such relationships by planting a vegetable or flower garden. Of course, this growing experience doesn't take place overnight; it requires learning about seeds, planting, harvesting, and, well, you can take it from there. Landscape gardener Hutton doesn't neglect its aesthetic elements, either; he instructs readers on decorating egg carton planters, planting a sunflower maze, and making step stone. A friendly way to plant the seed.
