    1. I must admit that I'm not at all a gardener -- but I *am* a lover of animals and organic foods, which is what inspired me to pick up THE WILDLIFE FRIENDLY VEGETABLE GARDENER when I had the chance to read it for review purposes. I absolutely LOVE the author's attitude and perspective when it comes to co-existing with nature, and she had loads of fantastic ideas that never would have occurred to me -- like planting certain herbs around a garden to entice certain animals, or to use bright flowers t [...]


    2. This book may be a guide to helping gardeners coexist with wildlife, but it doesn’t read like a reference manual. It is almost like a memoir of the life of a gardener. It is full of wonderful ideas for attracting wildlife to your garden, and living cordially with them when you succeed.The author suggests keeping a “nature journal”. The author will sit in the garden with the journal and jot down her observations-- what she did (fertilizing, trimming, planting), what she saw, problems noted- [...]


    3. An inclusive how-to guide on gardening with nature. As the introduction states "is book invites you to expand your relationship with nature." This book delves into making your home a productive animal habitat while providing food crops for yourself. With tried and true methods and advice for everything from preparing your soil to attracting pollinators and welcoming larger animals into your outdoor space. I already employ a lot of the methods discussed in the book, but I found many new things to [...]


    4. The layout is simple and effective with plenty of information in a clearly presented format. The book provides inspiration for a well planned garden without resorting to chemicals that would harm nature. Definitely a good book to have and to read over each year.


    5. The Wildlife-Friendly Vegetable Gardener was a fun, easy read with many organic gardening tips and suggestions offering a variety of ways to live in harmony with the environment plus plenty of cute, whimsical illustrations. The author uses her years of gardening experience on her small farm, a certified wildlife and botanical sanctuary in Colorado, as a basis for the book.The author begins by urging the gardener to observe and understand the wildlife that visit the garden, to rethink our relatio [...]


    6. Beautiful illustrations and a contagious love of nature made this a very pleasant read. Great for a novice gardener needing some guidance (aka me).


    7. I've always loved having a flower garden, but a few years ago I started growing vegetables and was quickly hooked. The problem is that I'm not the only one attracted to the edibles and I soon saw them disappearing just as they were ready to pick. Between tree rats and caterpillars and who knows what else, my garden sometimes became more frustration than relaxation, so I've been searching for ways to eliminate the pests – preferably in a safe way. And if I can attract the "flying flowers" – b [...]


    8. The Wildlife-Friendly Vegetable Gardener: How to Grow Food in Harmony with Nature by Tammi Hartung is a book that can help nature lovers understand how to make their yard and garden friendly to the wildlife around them while still maintaining a vegetable crop of their own. Co-existencebetween man, animals, and the insect world is the goal here, and the book offers some great suggestions for working with nature rather than trying to tame it and trying to force it to fit our vision.The Wildlife-Fr [...]


    9. Rating: 4 of 5I knew there had to be a way to garden WITH bugs, birds, rabbits, etc. WITHOUT going medieval on said wildlife OR losing one's sanity, and this book offered great ways to do just that.What I loved most was Tammi's obvious love of nature, gardening and wildlife - it was contagious and inspirational. She definitely walks the walk! (There's nothing worse than reading a how-to or DIY book and realizing its author probably never actually implemented the techniques they're writing about. [...]


    10. I chose to buy this book partly for the lovely, charming illustrations. I've read several books on wildlife-friendly gardening, and was happily surprised to find lots of inspiration in this, yet another, one. I'm planning to plant a fruit-and-nuts hedge, a wall of distracting sunflowers by the veggies, some wild cherry and plum trees, perhaps a nice decoy mulberry tree by a new Montmorency cherry treee author's friendly tone and personal antecdotes really sparks some enthusiasm . Since the autho [...]


    11. Read my full review: bit/17wqYGmMy opinion: This book would probably be more applicable to the novice gardener. As my husband and I have had gardens for numerous years, the better chunk of the information had already been gleaned from numerous other magazines.The "hand drawn" illustrations in the book were adorable. However, it probably would have been more beneficial to have photographs included of the insects and rodents, so that gardeners would be able to identify them.


    12. Tammi has some great suggestions that I look forward to using in my garden. I especially like the format, with chapters divided into mini-topics. Her plan ideas in the last chapter are presented in pictures which I enjoyed looking at, but also wished for more detailed maps with plant names and sizes. But, then again, I appreciated the simplicity because it leaves the reader to use their own imagination and design based on their own yard.


    13. This was a very informative book. It was very generalized in the ideas and information presented to incorporate wildlife into your gardens. I would recommend it to anyone interested in creating a more natural space that allows nature's creatures to interact with your plants, flowers, and produce. The drawings in the book were very colorful and a delight to look at.


    14. I've put this book on my wish list to own so I can revisit itd I have a LOT of gardening books, so to wedge one more onto the shelf will not be easy. But this is a book worth having. Oodles of helpful hints, absolutely delightful illustrations, and drool-worthy garden design suggestions. I'll be looking for her other books, too!


    15. I like the idea of living at peace with the world, even if that means things aren't always as orderly and within control as we humans like. Some nice tips to try to preserve some of the harvest of a garden, and some sane remarks about the value of living with the wildlife that shares our world.



    16. Great book on attracting and living with wildlife in your garden. Will revisit this once we have a place with a bigger garden.


    17. This book got three stars for great information, another star for not being hundreds of pages and the 5th star for being beautiful! The drawings by Holly Ward Bimba are all frame-able.



    18. Nicely illustrated guide full of useful tips for organic gardens. I particularly like her solution for getting rid of squirrels--hot chili pepper oil! :)



    19. I appreciated her perspective on being aware of the benefits of wildlife and how to "grow food in harmony with nature". Had a lot of good advice.
