What People are Saying About The Beetless’ Gardening Book:

“To cultivate a sense of humus in your soil, now is the time to dig this book!” – John Jeavons, author, How to Grow More Vegetables than you ever thought possible on less land than you can imagine

“If you say you want a revolution in gardening, come together and get this book. It will tell you how to improve the soil in your octopus’ garden so you can enjoy your strawberry fields forever.” – Grace Gershuny, author, Start with the Soil, coauthor, The Soul of Soil, coeditor, The Rodale Book of Composting

“Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!” – David Katz, Ag Access

The Beetless Gardening Book catches the same mix of silly, profound spirit I feel sniffing compost or watching peas grow. As the song says: ‘ Ooo, then I sensed you were near me, Ooo, and I wanted you to hear me.’ So pass it on to every compost sniffer you know.” – Jim Nollman, author, Why We Garden

“Dear Sir or Madam, can you spare that book?
Do you have any more? Can I take a look?
Others use newspapers, cardboard too
But I’m a frustrated writer
So I want to be a paperback mulcher
Paperback mulcher”
– Pear Machete, in “Paperback Mulcher”
