Farmers John's Review
*Local writer and Publisher
  I'm still reading this one (in my spare time...lol), but so far it has been loaded with really practical information for the beginner to intermediate gardener.  For instance, did you know you could use comfrey leaves to make a foliar tea that is high in nitrogen and potassium?   You can tell that Frank speaks from from a real experience in the garden.  So far, I haven't really disagreed with anything he has to say which is a first for me!  In fact I've learned a great deal from this book.  He gives, easy, concise and reliable information than can be put to use immediately in your garden. I think I may start offering this one as a bonus gift for orders over $400.  That is how much I like it. I can't recommend this book enough for the beginner and intermediate gardener!
