Edible Forest Gardens: Bought it After All


Just last week I wrote that I was thinking of purchasing Edible Forest Gardens by Jacke and Toensmeier, but that it was too expensive. Luck and generosity came my way so I could buy it anyway. Amie really got to see how happy books can make her, when the mailman brought the big box (2 big volumes) to the door.

Just to let you know…

  1. I bought Edible Forest Gardens after hearing the author speak at Berkshire Botanical Gardens. I found it to be a very dense book. I will pass it around and hope to feel as though I got my money’s worth from it. It is very hard for me to part with that much money. I keep thinking of all the seeds, bushes, trees and perennial plants I could have bought with it.

    I know, I love it! I’m reading as an ecology primer, with a practical twist. I love the charts and the bits about patterns in nature. I’m really an academic at heart…
    But yes, for me too it was hard to part with the money: in the end it cost me $79. That IS a lot of seeds…
