Many, many years ago, Jerry went to live with his Grandma Putt, who had an amazing amount of knowledge and folklore about old-time, natural gardening. Although he resisted at first, Jerry was soon drawn into her magical world, where plants were treated like people and given kindness, courtesy, and respect. They, in turn, provided her with beauty, bounty, and an abundance of natural remedies. Grandma Putt shared her knowledge with everyone, and soon, Jerry was on his way toward a new relationship with nature.In this book, Jerry shares the gardening secrets and old-time wisdom he first learned from his Grandma Putt. In addition, he's added hundreds of tips, tricks, and tonics that he's picked up along the way, including chapters on: Victorious Vegetable Gardening; The All-American Lawn; Eating...Weeds?; The Spice of Life Herbs; Puttin' By and Storin' Away.
