About the Book

This book is a result of three and a half years of weekly columns in the Newark (Ohio) Advocate many years ago. It was very well received, and I often got comments from people I came across about a certain article that was helpful. I simply wrote about the things I did, learned, and failed at over that time. Gardening can be funny, you will learn in this book. My husband was a major asset in gardening and in providing funny situations, but I think he liked getting hit in the head often. As for content, the articles follow the seasons of Ohio which came as I wrote them, but my sense is they can be far more widely applied in other areas of the country. I hope you learn from and enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Happy gardening! Jo Ann Wiblin

About the Author

I have always been interested in plants. My grandparents were avid vegetable gardeners, and when they came to our place to plant, I was right behind them. After marriage, my mother-in-law often came out to help in our garden, teaching me as we went. As our family grew, I had time to take the Master Gardener’s program, and they encouraged us to spread our knowledge to the community. We did, and often. As a writer and English teacher, I decided to propose a weekly column to the Newark Advocate. They accepted, and it led to 3 1/2 years of weekly columns. The result of that is this book. Understand that the chapters will be rotated as the years go, season by season. Ohio, by the way, has four seasons….. I hope you not only learn from this effort, but that you enjoy the humor it contains. PS You will see that pruning is one of my passions. I hope it becomes yours too!
