Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Quarter-Acre Farm: How I Kept the Patio, Lost the Lawn, and Fed My Family for a Year (Paperback)
Like the previous reviewer, L.K. Beck, I was interested in the challenge presented by the author but felt like it was not covered very well in the book. I ordered this book very quickly based on all the glowing reviews, hoping this would be another "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle". It was not. The artwork is lovely and the author seems like a very nice person. But there was very little substance to the book beyond general discussions of some of the crops the author grew. And lots of talk about mulch.
I am also curious as to where the editor was on this project. The author is fond of making 3 point arguments, which is fine, but the word "further" seemed to pop up almost every other page. Overall this was a great story but fell short of its potential.
