Synopsis: Sm Quarto, , Pp.246, How To Grow Great Vegetables

From Publishers Weekly: Epicurean gardening, writes the author of Guerilla Gardening, means "pursuing the principles of pleasure, but enjoying pleasure in moderation." If this seems a bit obtuse, he later explains in chattier language: "you want to fuss around. . . as little as possible, and want the best possible stuff for your efforts." Adams fancies himself a gardener/raconteur, but the book falls short in both areas. His low-maintenance gardening advice for growing vegetables and herbs isn't much more detailed than the copy on a seed packet, and his anecdotes tend to lag. Furthermore, his disdain for other gardening books is whiny (he claims that they make the subject sound "difficult, laborious and costly"), and he violates his own caveat when he "earnestly" recommends gourmet vegetables like arugula. There is an appendix of nurseries. Illustrations not seen by PW.
