My review

From the Ground Up: The Story of a First Garden by Amy Stewart

rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. Stewart takes us through the first year of her first garden—every mistake and every triumph—in a voice that is engaging and entertaining. There are a lot of moments that made me laugh here, and one or two that made me tear up.

I highly recommend this to anyone interested in gardening or who just wants a good read. It’s especially good if you’re having trouble with your garden. It’s reassuring to see that other gardeners started out the same way you did: by making mistakes.
