My New Favourite Gardening Book

We have a whole shelf in our book-filled house dedicated to gardening.  Last year I posted a list of my favourites, and since then I have a list a mile long of books I have read from the library, and those that I hope to read. But of all the gardening books I have read…

Pete the Cat – It’s all Good

Currently on the night stand…

I always seem to be reading 5 or 6 books at a time and have a habit of taking books out of the library a little faster than I can read them (especially this time of year!)  Although I do love fiction (especially if it was written for the younger crowd – most of my…
