The Contrary Farmer
By Gene Logsdon
"Once upon a time people thought gardens were flat, rectangular, and planted in rows. People grew vegetables such as lettuce, carrots, and tomatoes. Then Gene Logsdon, the self-proclaimed dean of American curmudgeons, came along to smash the concept of garden to smithereens. Gene Logsdon is an American original, a farmer who thinks, and a writer who gardens."
