Hello All! One book that I found particularly irresistable was "Garden
Crafts for Kids (Fifty Great reasons to get Your Hands Dirty) "by Diane
Rhoades...it tells how to prepare soil,plant, discusses lunar planting,
companion planting, and includes great recipes, crafts,  and experiments
for all ages. Enjoy! Michelle Maggiore
