My trifecta of favorite things to do are gardening, needlepoint, and reading. So when I get to combine two of them, I just about can't stand it. A couple of weeks ago Dominique Browning reviewed the season's new gardening books in the New York Times. Oh my. If only I had the time/money to get and read all of these.

If I were forced to choose only one, I'd have to go with Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yard (Timber Press, paper, $19.95) That's 'cause reading about it is as close as I'm going to get to having chickens!
