"It's hard to resist a gardening book that's both chock-full of information and fun to read. It doesn't matter if you are a novice gardener or more experienced, Annie shows the way to growing and enjoying a natural, sustainable, organic garden."
-Nell Newman, cofounder and president of Newman's Own Organics

"Annie Spiegelman (aka the Dirt Diva) understands what gardening is really about: having fun . . . even when you aren't having fun! This book is laugh-out-loud useful and smart. Frankly, it's the best book on organic gardening that I've seen in 11 years (since mine came out). The Dirt Diva Royal Horticultural Society is the only gardening club I really want to be a member of."
-Maria Rodale, CEO of Rodale Inc., MariasFarmCountryKitchen.com

"Talking Dirt is wonderful-even for those who don't have a garden . . .yet."
-Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

"Fun, factual, and filled with ideas. What sets Talking Dirt apart from all other organic gardening how-to guides is Anne Spiegelman. Her writing has an easy style, is easy to understand, and makes organic gardening easy to put into practice. The information is presented with personality and wit, making this book a must-have resource for the aspiring organic gardener."
-Michael C. Metallo, president of the National Gardening Association

"What Skinny Bitch did for vegetarianism Talking Dirt may do for organic gardening. Annie Spiegelman's book is the perfect primer for a generation raised on supermarket food and flowers but who are searching for something fresher and more satisfying. As comfortable among the cabbages as she is in a fashion boutique, Spiegelman succeeds in making the intricacies of gardening without toxic chemicals exciting and rewarding. With a light, swift tone and ample instruction, this is the organic gardening book for busy people."
-Brian Clark Howard, environmental journalist and web editor for The Daily Green

"Beautifully combining passion, humor, and a deep-rooted care for the planet, Spiegelman is the organic femme fatale. She understands the importance of our own backyards to build a better future, one shovelful of compost at a time. What a fantastic book."
-Helge Hellberg, executive director of Marin Organic and host of An Organic Conversation Radio Show

"Spiegelman's tone is reminiscent of the 'Samurai Shopper' column in the New York Times... entertaining and effective."
-Brian Halweil, author of Eat Here and senior researcher for World Watch Institute

"Spiegelman tells the lighthearted story of her own transformation from weekend gardener to a 'Dirt Diva.' Talking Dirt is full of tips all gardeners should take to heart to make their plot organic and nurture their plants the way nature intended."
-Tom Szaky, CEO and founder of TerraCycle Inc.

HASH(0x915a4aa4) von 5 Sternen If you are new to gardening, it covers it all...If you are a pro, you'll still learn lots 22. März 2010
Von Chandler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am in a major gardening and landscaping obsession right now as my reviews and purchases note. Consequently, my reading is consisting almost entirely of books on the subject.

Most books, however, are geared towards the writer's personal style, interests, or region. I was so impressed that this book was uber thorough in capturing it ALL. What I mean by this is that our front yard is very formal and traditional, yet our backyard is ALL native plants to our region, some xeriscaping, waterfall, organic veggie garden and only native groundcovers as opposed to grass in "grassy" areas. Yes, we have covered it all. And so did she. This takes the reader from garden design, to composting, to compost tea (your plants will love it), to laying out a vegetable garden, to really, really super gardening tips, to formal and traditional gardening to worm beds to weeds to proper pruning to zen gardens.

zzzzz. That sounds so boring. Expecially to anyone not yet INTO gardening. And that's the best pard. This book is funny and entertaining. NOT boring.In fact, I typically go through gardening books looking for info on what I'm focusing on at the time, but this is one of the very, very few that I actually read cover-to-cover and word-for-word. I lost the book for 3 weeks (had it in a bag in my pantry, I still don't know why...) and I actually felt like I had misplaced an action novel in the midst of coming to the climax of its plot. That sounds crazy to say about a gardening book...but the style is highly unusual, full of upbeat and "real" wit and wisdom and, most importantly, I learned a tremendous amount in spite of already thinking I had mastered the art.

I'll be honest, I opened the book and didn't expect to be "wowed". I am a visual person and it contained no pictures. (It does have drawings of various plant species) I am extremely visual in learning. So I went in with a negative mindset. ...Until I began reading. That says a lot.

Honestly, I think if I had to pick one book to hand to friends who want to learn the art of gardening, whether just a small container or herb garden on a balcony, to a massive spread like we took on at our own home, I think this would be the book I'd hand off and suggest. It's fun and funny to read, (imagine if Erma Bombeck told you how to garden...somehow I retain more when it's done in that tone, maybe because I enjoy reading it more that way.) but contains almost 300 pages of a ton of information that is really important stuff. It's obvious she's done this awhile.

Like me, she has found the art of gardening that actually requires no need for synthetic fertilizers and petrochemicals due to "feeding the soil instead of feeding the plant" and, consequently, (if only feeding the plant with chemicals) killing the good microorganisms in the soil which inevitably make gardening harder. Yeah, she "gets it". It took me a long time to learn this. She breaks it down so it doesn't. In fact, she passes on wisdom that makes your garden WAY less work and WAY more productive. Impressed. Organic gardening, in the end, makes your garden work for you even when you sleep, rather than you constantly working to keep it alive...if you do it right.

I'd give it more stars if I could. VERY helpful to us. In fact, we used her exact layout of a vegetable garden diagram for our organic veggies.

HASH(0x915a4af8) von 5 Sternen Best organic gardening book I have seen! 26. Februar 2010
Von Willa M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have been making sad attempts at organic gardening for years, and I have used many resources (books, websites, magazines, etc.) and after reading just HALF of this great book, I am convinced it's the best I have come across. The author's informative and funny style makes for an enjoyable AND practical read. There is some great information about urban gardening, container gardens and small plots as well as the more traditional gardening tips. I have more ideas now and I am more confident about my chances of success for this summer's garden. I plan on getting copies for all my gardening friends!

HASH(0x915a4dd4) von 5 Sternen Edible Dirt 17. März 2010
Von Gwyneth Horderpayton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Talking Dirt is the perfect gardening book for the beginner or amateur gardener. It is entirely approachable, inviting, downright edible. And you feel really good and wholesome after consuming it. It is stuffed with practical tips, facts that are both ethically and practically relevant, and personable insights on how to make the creation of a perfect ecological garden in your own backyard really fun. The book is just the kind that will end up stained and dog eared, for years floating around the kitchen, the garden, the tool shed. The young kids growing up with this book will perhaps go off to some urban college, make their way in an urban landscape for years, then one day in their forties, they will spot this filthy book in the corner of someone's house in the suburbs. They will exclaim, 'oh my God, I remember this book!', then curl up and consume it, dreaming of one day making their own garden wherever they have a little bit of dirt.

Von Jenn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is a great read for anyone who is new to gardening in general or simply organic gardening techniques. It is a quick read and not so technical you could not read it at the beach or on vacation. However, there are some things that you should keep in mind. The author lives in California. The growing season is a lot longer and subject to more droughts than someone in New England or the Great Lakes region. Winter tasks are listed several times in the book which obviously are not possible if your garden is covered in 6 feet of snow at that time. Gardeners with a shorter growing season should realize they will have to start seeds indoors if they want any chance of a spring or summer bloom the first year. In addition, if you have no experience with organic gardening you may fall for some of the 'traps' the the author simply glosses over. Such as her suggestions to purchase seeds which are resistant to powdery mildew or using potting soil. Although it is possible to purchase organic seeds that are resistant to some diseases it's also highly likely that resistant seeds are the result of genetic modification which is not organic. You may also find organic potting soil at your garden center but unless it is labeled 'organic' it is most likely convential soil with fertilizer encapsulated in plastic for slow nutrient release. The book does certainly have helpful suggestions as well, such as saving your trees only during a drought since it takes a lot longer to replace a full grown tree than a perennial or annual. However, have an educated eye when you read the book. Make sure you know your USDA hardiness zone so you know if they author's plant suggestions will grow in your region.

I like that this book gives you information that you otherwise would not know if starting a garden whether it be flowers or a veggie one. I belong to the town's garden club and by reading this book it will help me not only with my own personal garden but I can share some of the ideas with the other ladies in the club. Thanks
