About The Resilient Gardener:
I have been a fan of Carol Deppe since I was given a copy of her first book, “Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties”, two decades. Deppe has the observant, questioning eye of a scientist and the pragmatism of an experienced gardener and in this book she shares her conclusions and the path she takes to reconcile growing her own food in an era of limited time and finances, uncertain weather and unwelcome changes in diet. These are universal themes and I’m sure that’s what made The Resilient Gardener resonate with so many of you. One huge fan of the book is my no nonsense gardening colleague, Colleen Vanderlinden, who gave the book a hardy review.
Congratulations Carol Deppe. I’m already looking forward to your next book.
