This book will stay with me for a long time. I love Anne Raver's writing. She is informative, humorous, and inspiring. I have been wanting to create a garden so badly, but have been intimidated by all of the rules, etc.This book has brought gardening down to earth for me, no pun intended. I am inspired to get out there and start digging and composting and planting. I am thankful to Ms. Raver's imperfections and bravery. Everyone needs a garden, a place to dig and get their hands dirty. I think we are missing this in our souls.Put this book on your must-read list. You will not be disappointed.
