Amazon Reviewer RJ Wallace said:Never having planted a vegetable garden, I decided to give this book a try. So far, so good. I like that the book is laid out in a way that allows you to jump around; you don't have to read from beginning to end. A great $ value given all of the information that's packed into this one book. Definitely give it a try and pass it on to someone else!
