My Thoughts:

I truly enjoyed learning more about the author and her love of Puerto Rico. She shares stories of her childhood there, where her love of Verdura (greenery) started. Each project is carefully laid out for us to follow along, make notes, and observe our plants and our spaces, whether that is a container garden on our porch or balcony, an in-ground garden, or a window sill filled with happy houseplants.
