From the Author

“Without Joy, my book, Water the Snot Out of It and Other Gardening Tips would never have seen the light of day. I had been nagged for years to write a book, but the idea of condensing 700+ newspaper articles – one a week for 14 years – was overwhelming. Joy was able to take the best of them, organize them, put them in chapters and turn the whole mess into a well-designed book ready for publishing. It took us a while, but Joy is a joy to work with. Her suggestions were right on. Without Joy, the book would never have happened!”
