Cool New Vegetable Garden Book – Honest, no guff!

by Adrian D. Thysse

Donna Balzer, Alberta’s Garden Guru and author of Blogs and Blooms has a cool new book out, No Guff Vegetable Gardening. Co-authored with Steven Biggs, a Toronto horticulturist, this new book is the first in a series that looks to put the fun back into gardening by taking all the Guff†out.

How do I know this?

Did they send me a book to review?

Dang nab it…NO!

They have artfully circumnavigated this common publisher’s ploy by posting a slide show with select pages for you to view!

Visit No Guff Vegetable Gardening for your preview of the first No Guff Gardening book. (View it full screen to appreciate the cheerful artwork by Mariko McCrae)

I always thought ‘guff’ was the slime left behind by slugs after they have been sprinkled with salt…however, the authors describe Guff in the garden as –

think empty buzzwords
think pointless new products
think old theories passed off as new
think baseless over-the-fence tips
think greenwashing
think impractical theories
think about things that had you brimming with expectation…and let you down.

Taking the fads and misinformation out of gardening – a worthy goal.

No Guff Vegetable Gardening is now available directly from the web page:
