One complete season in the garden--sharing the author's experiences and discussing a variety of vegetables, flowers, and gardening techniques
"Glory be! A gardening book stuffed with regional advice and real first-hand experience. The mix of personal opinion and horticultural insight has created a most useful almanac. Read it and grow wise."--Roger B. Swain, Host, PBS Television's "Victory Garden"
"Lee Reich is exactly the sort of guide to gardening I wish I'd had when I started out--he's a fount of information and he's good company. A Northeast Gardener's Year brings together the authority of an experienced horticulturalist and the grace of a fine writer. A rare, and welcome, combination."--Michael Pollan, Author of Second Nature
