    • A modest little volume that traces the development and life of a garden and the one nice thing about it is it makes me think I don't have the tenacity and drive to make a beautiful garden. But the fact that it took her ten years to get it even vaguely where she wanted it did comfort me a little


    • The Expectant Gardener: A Wise and Fun Guide to the Adventure of Backyard Growing by Simone Martel (Creative Arts Book Company 2000)(635). This is very much written from the Earth-mother organic gardening view (e.g. “creating a “womb chamber”), but it contains some useful insights. My rating: 6.5/10, finished 2004.
