“VanderBrug welcomes his reader in joining the great agricultural history of the Midwest, and emphasizes the importance of knowing one’s garden and its various microclimates. Even those not planning a garden in the Midwest will find that following his calendar and narrative is surprisingly soothing, as he navigates the seasons and their chores.” —NYBG Plant Talk
“While Timber Press has tackled other regions with its growing guides, this edition is its first time walking gardeners through working with the climate extremes of the Midwest. The guide includes month-by-month actions, as well as care and keeping profiles for fruits, vegetables and herbs that grow best here and details on garden basics, including planning.” —Agri News

There are some really good tips, it's well written and I like the month by month aspect of it. The material of the book is really sturdy and I feel this book will last for a long time.
I felt this is a good companion to the other books I have because it fills in some of the gaps but would leave me with a lot of questions if it was the only one. For instance, I want to grow spaghetti squash and pumpkins but they are combined as winter squash.
Overall, it's a great purchase but if you're a new gardener like me you will want to get a few others to ensure you're properly educated before putting anything in the ground.
