An informal and delightfully chatty and practical book that takes one through the gardener's year from earliest seeding to putting the fall garden to bed for the winter. Arranged like a diary with a record of what to do and what happens. Straightforward information, particularly good on the matter of fertilization, lots of leads on how and when and why, on plant enemies and what to do about them, etc. Beautiful photographic illustrations, suggestions for arrangement and garden planning. Local Connecticut but fairly general in application.
