Very straight-forward, detailed but not overwhelming, and was neatly arranged for the everyday person. I started off with a garden that grew, and grew, and grew. Next thing I knew I wanted to expand and add chickens, rain barrels, and a composter - but I didn't know where to start. I'm immensely grateful for this book.
