Once again the Haywards teach us by example. Lovely photographs and detailed illustrations, sound advice and their usual pervasive combination of hard work and humor make reading and owning this book compulsory for anyone who gardens in the Northeast. Somehow they are able to communicate the endless possibilities of a gardening life without overwhelming the "garden dreamer". ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank


Yankee Magazine's Pantyhose, Hot Peppers, Tea Bags, and More-for the Garden

I picked this book up for the title and as soon as I started paging through it I was hooked. There are so many great ideas for "seat of the pants" gardeners like me! Informative, ingenious and incredible...this book has given me new inspiration to get back out there. It has also validated my pack-rat tendency to save any and all containers, string and broken stuff that I "may find a use for someday". ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
