  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
From School Library Journal

At last! A fabulous book for readers who know little or nothing about gardening but long to create and enjoy a mini Sissinghurst at home. From selecting the right spot to building a stand for selling one's produce, Rhoades offers complete information. She suggests selecting plants based on what readers like to eat, smell, and look at, and clearly describes every step in planting from soil to compost and worms. Homemade (and very stinky) environmentally friendly bug spray solves pest problems without resorting to dangerous chemicals. The author describes how to make tools, includes easy crafts and experiments, and provides a pictorial index of easy-to-grow vegetables and flowers. Full-color photographs are clear and well placed to illustrate the text. One delightful photo shows a formal table setting of rinds and veggie remains that is a feast for the worms that enrich the soil. This title could easily answer just about any question a beginning gardener might have.
