"Maria Finn proves that green-thumbed urbanites needn't feel limited to a few houseplants. Charming illustrations accompany instructions for growing lemons, shitake mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, figs, and more on windowsills, balconies, patios, and rooftops. Chapters on foraging and community gardening round out the book." ~Sierra Club's The Green Life
"A small, lovely book about gardening in tight spots: patios, fire escapes, windowsills." ~Entertainment Weekly
"Finn gets you thinking literally outside the box about endless possibilities for growing exotic produce within apartment limits" ~San Francisco Bay Guardian
