What better way to learn about the joys of gardening than to hear members of a family sharing their experience? Meet the Gaineses, who had no experience with growing things when they started with "Fern Number One" and then moved on to a houseful, and then to a "yardful" of plants. Along the way, this family shares both the science and practicality of gardening; for example, overhydration equals "too many drinks for a little plant." As listeners learn the basics of gardening, exuberance and enthusiasm shine in the narrators. The pacing and inflection are varied as the production bounces quickly from speaker to speaker. Meet garden heroes (ladybugs) and villains (aphids), composters (worms) and bullies (weeds), and ponder sage tips ("trying and failing and trying again"). A.R.
