This was a pleasure to read and written with great humour. Robin had a very easy-going and funny style. I can almost hear her speaking to me when I read the book.

Thank you Robin for filling our lives with the simple pleasures of gardening!

A very charming book, and wonderfully encouraging. I was a complete non-gardener, but Robin has given me the courage to try growing a variety of herbs. I can't claim to be an expert but I am thoroughly enjoying the journey! Too bad I can't share a photo as evidence that Robin can help anyone to grow plants. The fact that she lives on the west coast is also very helpful, as she is familiar with our local climate and growing seasons.
