KIRKUS REVIEW

If anyone visits my Connecticut garden next summer and finds tomatoes and peppers and purple cabbage where last year I had annuals, blame Gardens for Victory. Among the books reported briefly herein, this is the best for the part time gardener, the week-end gardener, the amateur, confessedly so. The authors show how to go from a tiny plot (or even parts of a flower garden) to a subsistence vegetable garden and up. The basic facts are there, --soil, exposure, preparation, planning, selection, planting, cultivating, protection against disease and pest, etc. etc. This is the book to recommend for people who want a self-starter.
