When I first started gardening like I mean it, about five years ago, I did not expect to start to enjoy reading gardening books. The ones I like best are the ones that tell the most personal stories of trial and error, triumph and perseverance, while at the same time offering up some practical advice, which is exactly what I found in this little gem. Mr. Hadley gardens in Australia, which is interesting enough in and of itself. I found his ideas of acheiving self-sufficiency one vegetable at a time to be both encouraging and inspirational, plus I picked up a few tips that were so exciting to me that I had to put the Kindle to sleep and trot on out to my own garden to make it happen. Well worth the read.
