    I think that after reading this very informative book, that I will be better prepared to preserve seeds with next year's garden. I am a beginner at gardening and it just makes sense to learn to save vegetable seeds. There is more involved with saving seeds than I expected but it will not be difficult to try. The pictures in this book are very clear and directions are easy to follow. I recommend keeping this book on-hand for reference when it is time.

    Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
