A Good Read

Last week I read The $64 Tomato by William Alexander.  I came across this book not in the fiction section of my book store but among vegetable gardening books.  It only took me 5 days to read the book cover to cover.  When I read the synopsis on the back about the daily struggles of an everyday gardener I knew I wanted to read it.  The book did not disappoint.  For anyone who gardens you can relate to the daily work and expenses incurred to cultivate and protect your bounty.  As a gardener at times you might feel that you are the only one with garden issues and this book made it known that everyone has their own garden drama.  I thoroughly enjoyed the humor and comedic relief of the garden.

  1. After our failed community garden plot in Mason, I think that this book might be perfect for prepping to "try again" with gardening next year. Thanks for the recommendation.
