Overview

Jerry Baker's Old-Time Gardening Wisdom: Lessons Learned from Grandma Putt's Kitchen Cupboard, Medicine Cabinet, and Garden Shed! by Jerry Baker, Graphic Arts & Production

Hundreds of time-tested secrets of Jerry Baker’s Grandma Putt fill this volume of gardening know-how and old time wit. Emphasizing values of ingenuity and old-fashioned “grow-how,” the guide starts with the soil to build a great garden from the ground up, with healthy trees, hearty veggies, and bright blooms. The advice ranges from how to double the output of a strawberry plot and quash weeds using other yard waste to growing the richest roses in the neighborhood. In addition to tips and tricks for the out of doors, a handful of home heath remedies are included, such as soothing a sunburn with garlic or tending to a nagging cough with things from the garden. Grandma Putt’s techniques even take readers into the kitchen, with chapters on edible weeds and flowers as well as canning and storing the harvest for winter.
