This is one of my favorite books ever. Joan Dye Gussow is so genuine and inspiring as she attempts grow all of her own food. She has a wicked sense of humor which makes the book fun to read along with some good looking recipes. I recommend this book for everyone, especially anyone who gardens or wishes to be closer to their food.
