James reviewed Berries (Firefly Gardener's Guide) on
From the succulent taste of an early-June strawberry to the welcome sweetness of an October raspberry, berries are an evocative, memorable food -- the essence of an unforgettable blueberry pie or a jam that transforms ordinary toast into a winter-morning feast.
This gardener's guide is a collection of essays on the delicious rewards of berry cultivation. Edited by Jennifer Bennett, this guide contains expert advice on cane, bush, ground and wild berries, as well as practical direction on planting, care and maintenance and harvest. An annotated species list, compiled by seasoned berry growers and beautifully illustrated, completes a book that will be a welcome addition to every gardener's reference library.
