    1. This is a great book filled with nifty ideas and useful gardening information. All great ideas that I plan to implement once the weather gets warmer.

    2. Neat book! This is one that I want to add to my own collection. It gave me some great ideas for our backyard play area. It's too blah now in my opinion.

    3. Chock full of great ideas. Some very simple (scarecrows & mudpies) to the more involved (raising chickens).
