This very touching narrative made me laugh and almost cry at times as the author revealed her attempts to understand her nonfunctional family relationships in light of her gardening successes and failures. Her efforts to try to heal herself & her family by restoring a neglected Seattle plot are also motivated by her desire to provide a nurturing & enlightening environment for the younger generation. (It also inspired me to think about MY yard again.) Furthermore, there were interesting little tidbits about Seattle history such as the origin of the P-patch, CityFruit, & Carkeek Park.
