Earlier this winter I had a surprise email from a publisher. It turns out I sold my first photograph. (Yeahh!!!!) The publisher found the photo at my Flickr site. I’m not even sure what photo it is but it shows plants mulched with salt marsh hay. The photo is now in a paperback book titled “Complete Guide to Perennials (Miracle Gro)”.
Since I’d like to see my picture, I’m ordering a copy. I’d also like to order another gardening book. What’s the best gardening book? (Ordering gardening books seems like a nice wintertime “gardening” activity).
The best selling “gardening” book on Amazon is “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle”. I’ve already read that – I didn’t really need a lecture about why to grow my own food – I’d prefer a nice how-to book.
So my picks were “The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible” by Edward Smith. Also “Great Garden Companions: A Companion-Planting System for a Beautiful, Chemical-Free Vegetable Garden” by Sally Jean Cunningham. I’m looking forward to reading these. Are there any great gardening books I’m missing?
