I love the ideas in this book. I just wish there was more information for different regions.
very well written and quite informative
Preparation and timing are two of my greatest challenges as a novice vegetable gardener. This attractive ebook, complete with easily navigable links and helpful resources, is a welcome addition to my "growing" library.
