What They're Saying

I love your style of writing. Easy, knowledgeable but not condescending. I agree with everything in the book. Great information about each vegetable. The information applies to the beginner gardener or the expert gardener.

What I love about your book....no nonsense, 'Doug Green' voice.....good grounded information offered from someone who has years of experience in the field.
-Fran Sorin author, garden tv host and garden designer

The book emphasizes common sense and adaptability, general in the first half and specific in the second, with useful details about cultivating a broad range of vegetables. He writes it all in a friendly, shoot-from-the-hip voice that covers all bases without drowning you in data. Again, this is the right style for me, who just wants a few reliable guidelines to follow, plus a fingertip resource when I need particulars about my vegetables of choice.
