"ForeWord Review" Book Review
This review appeared in "ForeWord" Reviews newsletter "ForeWord This Week" on February 21, 2012.
Jerry Apps grew up with gardening parents, has planted a garden nearly every year of his life, and his children have developed a love for the earthly experience as well. In "Garden Wisdom" he shares his plentiful knowledge of the craft. In the first section, "Gardening Roots," Apps reflects on his own early experiences, in "Planning and Planting" he offers advice on everything from where, when, and what to plant to harvesting and keeping out the critters, and in "Enjoying the Harvest" he provides unique recipes he has created from his own crop, such as rhubarb cream pie, orange zucchini cake, and tomoto-stuffed peppers. For anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of harvesting vegetables and fruit or for those looking to hone their green thumb, "Garden Wisdom" details the simple joys of home gardening.
