If you’re new to TMG and don’t know about the book the following will be helpful to you:

Organic Gardening – Cutting Through the Hype to the 3 Keys to Successful Gardening, does just what the title says

It cuts through the hype of 4 popular things you don’t have to fuss with unless you want to. 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 simple information you need, in a book you can easily carry with you.

You don’t need to buy much to garden the way I do.

Harold, who subscribed in 2021, wrote to me recently giving a great account of what happened when he started using my methods.

“….. back in January of 2021 I sat down with (my wife) and worked out what my monthly gardening budget would be since I “thought” I was going to have to buy bagged soil amendments, blood meal, bone meal and Lord knows what else I had in my head I was gonna need to be able to garden successfully.

“Today I look round my yard (one acre) and see everything I have available to use in my garden to build amazing soil that only costs me a little sweat equity.

“And —, I’m seeing how almost everything in our modern lives is designed to make someone money at our expense and has nothing whatsoever to do with our well being.

“I sincerely thank you for opening my eyes to how free I can actually be if I only pay attention. “

Here are 3 comments from other readers:

I have finished your book and am so excited to get to work on preparing my vegetable garden — Your book is full of such great information and takes so much of the “mystery” of gardening out of the equation.

Last fall I found TMG and purchased your book. I took to heart your wisdom and applied it to my garden. I added lots of leaves and organic matter. After I planted my garden and applied lots of mulch I have done nothing but harvest. My garden is not perfect but my family is eating, tomatoes, potatoes, squash, okra, cucumbers and swiss chard. That is a complete 180 (degrees) from the previous 2 years. Real soil works, mulch works! If you are a new reader to TMG …unplug from Big Food and the chemical marketing matrix!”

I directly credit the MAJOR increase in productivity in my garden to you. —-(it) is amazing compared to how my garden used to operate.”

  • My comment arrives late and I see that there are only 2 books left! If any one is new here and still can’t decide whether to buy the book, I assure you that you won’t regret getting it. If you enjoy and resonate with what you read on TMG, you do want the book! I would say that it is Theresa’s most important knowledge and philosophy condensed in one place. I found so much value on it. Get it before it’s too late!
    I would recommend also the Secrets for Seeds Starting Success book: I thought I didn’t need it as I was already growing from seeds, but as always, thanks to Theresa’s tips and knowledge I was able to improve my practices – achieving more success with less efforts!
