Good info, although repetitive, short, and shallow...
on May 11, 2009
Let me start off y letting you know this book is NOT written by Carla Emery.. this is merely a ripoff of her work by her publishing company.. Carla Emery (Rest her Soul) died in 2005 and her work has been .. shall I say.. edited.. for the time and lack of knowledge for city-dwellers.. If you already HAVE Carla Emery's Encyclopedia of Country Living, Vol. 10.. I would suggest you NOT buy this tiny booklet. All the information contained in this book is ALREADY in Carla's Encyclopedia in more depth and detail. If you don't have this book, I would reccomend you buy it instead of this one.
The jist of it is showing ignorant gardeners what, when, and how to plant, how long till harvest, etc. It does NOT contain any what-if information or help regarding pests and diseases.. this is mainly an instrucion booklet. It is a good book, although very short and not very informative, considering I already OWN Carla's Encyclopedia of Country Living and find it MUCH more useful, and informative.. as it goes in depth with each vegetable showing not only propogation how-to, but potential fallbacks and solutions..
Please, don't waste your time with this tiny book. Save your money, add a few dollars to it, and OPT for the BEST source of information ..
Carla Emery's Encyclopedia of Country Living Updated 10th edition..
you won't be disappointed!
