There was a wooden picnic table under the grape arbor, where Zelma sat all day when she wasn't actively gardening. She shelled peas, wrote letters, and mended clothes there. The older she got, she said, the less she wanted to be inside. Following Zelma's model, I will age ungracefully until I become an old woman in a small garden, doing whatever the hell I want. There was a time when this would have sounded unfulfilled to me, if not downright depressing, but now I look forward to it. Robin Chotzinoff From the Introduction
One of the latest trends in home horticulture is regional gardening, but most popular garden books and syndicated columns are written by authors on the East or West coasts. 'Possum in the Pawpaw Tree' is aimed at the heartland of the United States, where 'normal' weather means bitter winters, torrential spring rains, and summer drought. The material here is arranged to provide a handy month-by-month guide for indoor and outdoor gardening activities, both for the novice and the more experienced gardener.
