Loved this book. Will make your realize you can plant a garden in your own backyard and enjoy doing it. Of course there will be some ups and downs, but I think the joy expressed in this book would be well worth the try.

Spring Warren has the special gift of regaling one with wit and humor - while sneaking in some pretty heavy duty history and science. She does it so deftly, however, that there is not even one pin prick of pain. In fact, the only pain you will feel is the ache in your side from laughing so much at the drama in her yard. The recipes sound delicious and her son's illustrations are as delightful as his mother's writing. One can read this just for fun, and great fun it will be; however, you can also read this as a guide for trying it on your own. Her trials will help you avoid some serious mistakes, and her successes will help point you down the path for creating your own similar successes.

Good book. Funny. Sticking to eating what she grew and having one crop for weeks before anything else was ripe and finding ways to cook it and not give up. Although its a given that she doesn't have a day job so she has plenty of time on her hands which she admits to gardening in her bath robe lots of days.
