Cover image of The Truth About Organic GardeningNext week I’ll be reviewing The Truth About Organic Gardening by Jeff Gillman, and Jeff will be critiquing my use of a common herbicide. To add to the fun and excitement, Timber Press and I have joined forces to give you another chance to win a free book. One copy of Jeff’s book, The Truth About Organic Gardening, will be awarded to someone who correctly answers all the questions in this quiz provided by Timber Press.

Please note the contest is over. Take the quiz for your own entertainment.

Yes, I’m assuming that at least one person will answer them all correctly. The answers are only true or false, after all. If more than one person gets them all right, we’ll do a random drawing from all the correctly answered quizzes. If no one gets them all right, we’ll do a random drawing in that case, too. Someone will win the book, so even if you feel kind of shaky on your organic gardening facts, don’t be afraid to try.

The answers will be posted when the winner is announced a week from today.

I guessed on more questions than I care to admit!

I definitely need to read this book. I could only guess at most of the answers. No book for me, I guess! I have a lot to learn.

Right or wrong, your answers are safe with me. No one is being graded, I assure you! But I hope your curiosity is whetted!

I took the quiz but I had to guess on a couple of
the answers because I haven’t read the book. So I hope you don’t post our ‘gradens’.
