Here is a little self-published book that is just the ticket when you want some light reading of a gardening nature. TC speaks in a down-to-earth manner that makes you feel as if the two of you were friends having coffee at the kitchen table. He dispenses gardening advice, but does it in such a manner that you almost don't realize you've learned something by the time you're done reading.
This is a collection of TC's writings from his newspaper column and they're arranged in seasonal order. Full of humor, spirituality, and practicality, they're also punctuated by beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Donald Conner, TC's brother. Writing a book is no small feat and kudos to TC for this accomplishment, but also to his brother, who shares the family's creative talent.
