“What better way to enjoy learning the ups and downs of gardening than with a good dose of humor. Great book for anyone who’s tried their hand at growing. And if you don’t garden, this book might just inspire you to see what garden adventures could lay ahead for you. Keep it on the side table to read for a chuckle after a long hard day. Carol, thank you for making gardening fun again!”

With Carol, everything is interesting. She definitely knows how to hold her audience…even the ones like me who aren’t terribly interested in veggies!! She is EXCELLENT!!! SUPER GREAT!!!”
