My impressions: Very useful because it talks to me, not down to me. It also doesn't assume I know a million things about gardening (which I don't). We moved to a farmette of types and the garden area is fairly spent, full of weeds (THISTLE!!!) and clay like. This book will help me have a more productive garden without the craziness that I have now (poor spacing and annoying weeds). She tells in great detail the type of soils to use to start plants and to plant outdoors. SHe tells in great detail how to build a trellis for plants (without screws or even a saw (ok, maybe a little saw action at the bottom so it comes to a point to stick in the ground). She tells how to build the super raised bed (not a 6 inch raised bed, but a 3 foot raised bed!) She does tell us to be creative (which often stresses me out in other books because I am sooo not creative) but shows pictures of how other people she has seen do it and how we can adapt to whatever plan we want with confidence.
