Garden Book

garden book front coverWant to learn to garden?  My first attempt at gardening ended up in failure.  The weeds took over and squeezed the vegetables out.  I was very frustrated by this waste of good seed, time, and money.  I became a master gardener and spend a lot of time helping other people avoid or overcome problems in their garden.

In order to help others garden successfully, I have written a book, Preparing a Vegetable Garden From The Ground Up.  I sell it in ebook form or book form.  Both are available from Amazon.com.
