This book formed my gardening self. So much of what I believe is The True Way can be found here I feel like a zealot. Perhaps I am. ( )

Fron the publishers of Organic Gardening Magazine, Rodale publishing, this is a small book ... for all the stuff it covers. And it covers it well!
It has made me look good - a buncha times. Years ago, for example, my parents had retired and were putting in a garden when my Mother expressed a desire for a row of asparagus. It so happened I had just been perusing that very topic myself and told her so.
I got the book back three years later! And that's not the ONLY time I've had to "borrow it back". Its that helpful AND interesting.
The fact that it deals with Organic methods means it stays useful ... and will, years from now. ( )
