a nice gardening book
Timberpress sent me a copy of a new book that I really enjoyed reading. "Sugar snaps and Strawberries" by Andrea Bellamy.
Its about small-space edible gardening and has really nice photos of container gardens. Great photo (page 46) of a garden planted in an old canoe! Nice section (page 58) on building raised beds. And (page 67) a chart of "the dirty dozen": 10 fruits and vegetables that consistently test highest for pesticide residues. They include kale, potatoes and spinach. Makes me glad to know I grow these at home. A nice book for a new gardener or an old one - to sift thorough as we wait for the gardening season.
