Once Patricia and Robert married, his obsession become hers. She explains that while their garden may not be officially organic, they follow all the steps to grow it as such.
Her writing style is easy, and makes the reader feel like a visitor sitting in her home. She explains all of the basics of gardening and makes me feel that I can actually do it myself. whey live in Raccoon Township, located in western Pennsylvania, and are faced with varied seasons and growing patterns. Her blog-style writing takes us through the months, and she shares some amazing looking recipes after each "season" of writing. I am going to try some of her squash dishes this week.
Ms. Zick clearly explains what she knows (composting, canning, etc) and tells us what sources to explore to find information that she doesn't feel comfortable explaining. For wanna be farmers like me or people who just like the taste of a home grown tomato, this book is a quick read that will teach you a few tricks to growing your own vegetable garden.
