This book is fantastic!

So much information in such a small book. I stumbled upon this book while looking for a gardening book 6 or 7 years ago. I am so glad I bought it. It answered so many questions I had as to why certain things didn't do so well in my garden. Come to find out, I was planting things together that didn't like each other. I am the one who usually plants and takes care of the garden in our family - my husband usually just did the tilling, etc. if I needed it. Well, a couple of years ago, he decided to "help" me plant our garden. He didn't believe me when I told him that tomatoes hate cabbage! He insisted on planting "his" tomatoes next to the cabbage. I did try to warn him, but to no avail. I, however, planted "my" tomatoes where they needed to be put. Needless to say, he believed me later on. His tomatoes got blossom end rot and were small and puny looking, where mine produced a bumper crop! Last year when we planted together, he asked me if he was putting the right things together! Lesson learned!
