Very informative and extremely useful


Got this book for my wife as she is a avid vegetable grower. I have used it myself and it is one of the easiest books i have read for the understanding of how to use the plants, what the benefits of the plants are, and how to create great food sources out of all the plant. I have already started my Dandelion Wine as my yard is full of them. Looking forward to the outcome. Excellent and well versed Authors.
