    Summary: 
    Warren recounts her efforts to take control of her family's food choices and create a garden in her suburban yard. Here is the story of bugs, worms, rot, and failure; of learning, re-planting, harvesting, and eating. All-in-all, she did what she set out to do--grow 75 percent of all the food they consumed for one year.
