However, quite a few of the "tips" were very recycled and somewhat tired ideas I've read in many, many places, and some were actually less advised. For example, Mavis suggests that one way to keep tools such as shovels, forks and hoes free of rust and corrosion is to plunge them into a bucket of sand soaked in oil such as WD40 and store them well oiled. I've read this in a zillion places, but even Martha Stewart disavows this idea now; it's a bad idea for those of us growing edibles, as every time the oiled tool comes into contact with the growing bed soil, a residue of WD40 is left behind in the growing medium near our food. I love that Mavis urges us to avoid seeds or plants grown from seed that use genetically modified organisms. Great advice, but she missed the real reason why: the real danger from GMOs is not the introduced bacteria used to modify the organism, but the residues left on our food of the much stronger herbicides, pesticides and fungicides these modified plants can now tolerate-- and are now directly introduced into and onto our food. Mavis also sings the praises of growing citrus trees in pots, providing then can be brought inside and set near a south facing window in the winter months in most growing zones. She explains how she sent away for the plants and how to plant them. Given her fondness for frugality, I was surprised she didn't simply start her trees from seed pulled from the lemons or other citrus; it's incredibly easy to do and they grow a treat.
Overall, I enjoyed this read, and will likely buy other monthly installments...but I did think it was worth only what I paid-- $2.99, no more.
She had some I haven't tried , I enjoyed how she writes and tells a story. Her recipes are enjoyable too.
