I loved this book! Even as an avid gardener, this was a good, quick read. The author discusses everything from proper planting, pinching suckers and the possibility of rooting them, to what to do for diseases. He covers a lot but does it in a nontechnical way so this works for the container gardener to the backyard gardener. The 2nd half of the book is recipes, from a basic sauce to even a "Black Martini", a section of terms and resources, and an index. A great read for anyone looking to start growing tomatoes or the amateur gardener with some experience.
