Step into the garden with writer and rural historian Jerry Apps. In this treasure trove of tips, recollections, and recipes, Jerry combines his hard-earned advice for garden success with a discussion of how tending a garden leads to a deeper understanding of nature and the land. From planning and planting to fending off critters and weeds, he walks us through the gardening year, imbuing his story with humor and passion and once again reminding us that working even a small piece of land provides many rewards.


Gardening has always been a group endeavor for the Apps family. In "Garden Wisdom," readers will learn gardening basics along with Jerry's grandchildren as they become a new generation of gardeners. They'll devour Ruth's recipes for preparing and preserving fresh garden veggies - from refrigerator pickles to rutabaga pudding. And they'll savor son Steve's beautiful color photographs, capturing the bounty of the family garden throughout the growing season.
