Not only good history, but an engaging intellectual autobiography.--Sue Hubbell, New York Times Book Review (for Dangerous Birds) Janet Lembke loves to garden. But when she moved into her urban home in Virginia, she only had one-eighth of an acre to work with: a small front yard and a small backyard. How she traded a postage-stamp lawn for an edible cornucopia is what this enchanting book is all about. Lembke joyfully guides us on her gardening journey, in chapters called: Tomato Haven The Grass Extermination Project Tools of the Trade How a Garden Grows Herbs Flowers Vegetables Outwitting the Gardener Wooing the Green Man, Courting Dame Kind and Garden Dreams From Grass to Garden is chock-full of tips and advice for gardeners with tiny plots, including what plants are compatible with others; garden paths and seating; what vegetables and plants work best in front versus backyards; and more. She offers everything a hopeful gardener needs to reap bounty for the kitchen table from what was once a small, pesky lawn."@en ;
