I love the story of Little Dorrit. Not one of Dickens most well known novels, but it should be. It took me quite a while to get through this novel (my first doorstep size book of the year) and often found it difficult to keep the characters straight. The dull parts are detailed and long, but the intresting and romanctic parts are wonderful. Little Dorrit is my second Dickens, Great Expectations was my first, and I think it is far superior. Dickens fans need to read Little Dorrit.
This book lays out a very nice range of garden plans, including ones for beginners and very small gardens, to huge gardens for pros. Most are multi-year plans, a huge plus, so that you learn as you go. Includes detailed lists for supplies, seeds, and plants for every project, a timeline, and how-to info. Additional sections on organic gardening in general. A great resource if you don't know how to start, or if you need to have the possibilities reigned in (that's me!).
