Are you an organic gardener or want-to-be gardener that’s tired of wondering what you’re doing wrong and what you should be doing? Are you sick and tired of a lot of complicated information and too much to buy?
Or maybe you’re a long-time reader of TMG and just want the information in one place that gives you a good foundation to success in the garden.
Sandra, a reader of TMG, has written to me several times and told me, “One of the things that sets you apart is that you know the difference between tried and true advice as opposed to the stuff we read in those ‘generic’ learn-to-garden books.”

And then it gives you the details on the 3 simple keys to successful gardening. It gives you tried and true advice and the easy way to be successful with organic gardening.
It’s the information you need, packaged in a size you can easily carry with you.
