Gardening with Jerry Baker

Jerry Baker is my kind of gardener. Instead of ranting and raving about how the environment is slowly being destroyed by evil corporations, he's quietly concocting homemade herbicides and pesticides in his kitchen using any number of combinations of ammonia, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, tobacco dust, dried bloodmeal, mouthwash, cola, etc. and dishing out good old tried and true gardening advice. Visting his website or blog is like taking a trip up state to grandpa's farm. He reminds me of what gardening should be-fun, relaxing, inspiring, life-affirming-an escape from the annoyances and hardships of daily life. Don't talk about politics or global warming, or your fibromyalgia in my garden or I'll chase you out with my pruners and my shuffle hoe! Happy weeding.
