    By dogs see for me
    Since I just got this book, I haven't have time to try the recipes and projects yet. But, from having done previous gardening and animal husbandry, the book adds sensibly to what I know. Well written to be used as a resource and guide, readers such as me should find it easy to start and finish projects.
  • Excellent review!
