    One thought on “Jerry Baker's Old-Time Gardening Wisdom: Lessons Learned from Grandma Putt's Kitchen Cupboard, Medicine Cabinet, and Garden Shed! (Jerry Baker Good Gardening series)”

    1. Love this book. It's like hearing my mother talk to me about gardening. So much of it echoes what she learned from her mother about gardening, who learned it from her mother, etc. It's fantastic to have the practical wisdom passed on through the generations in one place in this book. I'm learning a tremendous amount from reading it and enjoying calling up my mom and saying, "You were right, Mom!!"

    2. This is my favorite gardening book EVER. I love the graphical way that information is presented; it's so easy to read and find data. The little incidental stories about Grandma Putt make this a fun read, as well. This is probably the BEST gardening resource any gardener could have, whether they've never held a trowel or if they're a composting wizard.

    3. This is one of the most comprehensive gardening books I have ever read. I have been searching for a gardening book that explains it all and this is it. It is all very practical advice that can be easily implemented by even a new gardener like me. I can't wait to start my own garden this spring.

    4. This book didn't have quite enough info that I wished it to have, but it sure was an entertaining and somewhat informative read. I must admitt, it inspired me, but if your looking for a exaustive gardening book this is not it.

    5. I got this book as a birthday gift and I love it. It has lots of good gardening "recipes" and old-timey tips that you can't get in every month's issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
