This may only be of interest to those of you who garden, but since Cannonballer Lizella recently posted a book about rose enthusiasts, I’m feeling a little more confident in reviewing it. I’m a pretty avid gardener and have a number of gardening books in my arsenal. I have probably read them in their entirety in a piecemeal fashion, while using them as a reference tool, but I have never read a gardening book cover to cover. Toby Hemenway’s book is a cover to cover read. It demonstrates a fairly doable approach to ecological home gardening. Plant native plants! Embrace nature! Even you city folk can grow a food forest and raise you some chickens!
