Who doesn’t love illustrated books? “Kiss my Aster - a graphic guide to creating a fantastic yard totally tailored to you” (Storey Books) by Amanda Thomsen is like “Where the Wild Things Are” for grownups. Grownups who garden or wished they gardened, or wished they were wild.
The book covers the basics: digging into the soil, picking plants, battling weeds, plus coloring pages are included to keep you engaged. Typical chapter—“Shrubs: the khaki pants of the landscape” is stuffed with a stick-on tattoo for you to use.
To win this book for yourself or someone you know who is just starting out - get in on the action in the comments section. Tell us about your most reliable shrub - or secret tattoo. Hey - what happens at Dirt du jour, stays at Dirt du jour. Just saying….
A winner will be chosen at random, eyes closed, pinkie promise.
