3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nathan on Aug. 8 2011
It's OK... there were interesting gardening tips and snippets here and there. However the author doesn't really get much into specifics, and seems more interested in showcasing her own situation then having real-world applications of how the gardening should work for others. Does more of a gloss-over than the deep dive I was hoping for. The organization of the book doesn't really work either; she says she'll break down month-by-month what you should do, but instead has a tiny little bit on what you should do then goes on about a specific topic (e.g. seeds, or canning). Might have been better to have had 2 general sections: gardening tips & tricks, THEN a month-by-month breakdown. Makes it seem like I need a couple acres to garden, and my 8' x 20' garden can't grow a good variety of food for my family. Oh, and that section on raising chickens? A page and a half on 3 hens she calls her "girls" which is more about chicken behavior and how the author set up their cage so it cleans easier than it is about the basics of raising chickens. Maybe I was expecting more out of this book than I was hoping for, but really I'm not much better off now than before I bought it. I'd give it more 2.5 stars.

A lot of knowledge all wrapped up in one book. Very easy to understand; it's as if you were having a discussion with the author herself.

Carolyn Harriet's Zero Mile Diet is one of the three best how-to books I've ever read. If you want to tune up your gardening practices, she tells you how--how to get it just right. Extremely knowledgable.
