Sometimes books on vegetable gardening look useful, but when you get into them, it just seems too complicated and hard to do what the author suggests. This isn't the case with this book. It's interesting to read, and provides lots of alternative ways to create your garden, from creating city gardens to suburban spaces to really getting serious if you live in the country.

And there are sections like "let us grow lettuce" and "squish squash" that capture the tone of the writing. I mean useful information doesn't have to be written in a dry and boring fashion. And the different vegetables the book describes and how to make them part of your garden motivates me to want to try things I never would have considered, like sweet potatoes, horseradish, and cardoons, a kind of artichoke.

The complete idiot's guide series isn't really written for idiots, but the books are written for beginners who want to learn how to do something like planting their own vegetable garden and actually getting the harvest they hoped for. I am convinced from my reading of this book that it will more than deliver on that promise.

This is a fun and really useful book.

This is full of interesting information written in a easy to read manner. However a lot of the sections could really do with relevant diagrams. Like the description of garden designs are only textual, they would be a lot more meaningful with a simple diagram.
I'm still happy with the book though.

I found this book to be very encouraging for me due to the fact that I do not have a green thumb. This book has helped me to begin a very I must say very small garden that at theis moment is growing very healthy.

good general information, great for starting up a garden, but doesn't go into too much details.
