I found this book to be not only entertaining, but informative. It is a tour of the midwest and its vegetable gardners. Within the authors' investigation of the various gardens he finds are slices of each gardner's life and their views on the world. Each personality is shown through the garden, from a man who live in a shack and swears to letting his vegetable vines ramble wildly, to an older man who drives from his home to his plot with percise neat rows. It is also a nice compilation of gardening tips that read like a conversation with an old-timer. While reading you can almost picture these people, sitting before you and pointing out the potato bugs on the leaf, or letting the soil fall through their fingers, harvesting tomatoes, ect . . . I recommend this book because it shows pretty much why we are drawn to plant our own crops and watch them grow.
