Great course!

Thank you so much for this class. The amount of information that's compacted in this course is outstanding.

Easy to understand, well-oganized, and applicable for all zones. This is a resource I pull up each season. More than anything, the relaxed and candid approach has really helped me relax and enjoy the journey rather than always striving for a high vegetable yield. The joy truly is in the journey!!! I highly recommend this for new and for seasoned gardeners!

Thank you Mr. Jimerson and thank you Craftsy!
