Green Thoughts

Eleanor Perenyi

A good friend gave me a copy of this book for my winter birthday, and it saw me through to spring. I started with the chapter on mulch, then read about compost. I could feel my garden improving already as I learned in the company of a wise, companionable master. As Mary McCarthy says on the cover, “you do not have to be a good gardener to fall in love with Green Thoughts.  It reads with the intrepid assurance of a classic.”
