“The Dirt On Jane” is Jane Fishman’s anti-memoir. It’s a tale of aging, a style of gardening, a rage at having to wear two pairs of glasses to read a map in the car.... More > It’s a meditation in maintaining a sense of humor when visiting her mother in the assisted living facility and hearing someone ask, “When did you move in?” It’s a prayer for patience when her mother says, “All I want for Mother’s Day is for you to polish your nails with some Iced Mocha I bought on sale.” It’s a look at a life that is haphazard, loopy, fun and always in need of straightening. As a judge in the Savannah Garden Exposition once said of her ten-foot-by-twelve-foot faux garden entry: “Delightful! Shows one doesn't have to spend a lot of money to enjoy gardening.

She is the author of “Everyone’s Gotta Be Somewhere,” a collection of newspaper columns. She lives in Savannah, Georgia. ISBN 978-1-4675-0404-1< Less

Paperback: $15.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
If you’re looking for how-to manuals on gardening—what to plant when and where—this is not the book for you. If you’re looking for permission to have fun in your garden,... More > accept the unexpected and dabble in a new art form—look no further. “I Grew It My Way, How Not to Garden” is just that: one person’s wacky account of all things natural. When it comes to gardening, Jane Fishman has re-written the rule book. She’s a master at cutting her losses. For her there is no beginning or ending to gardening. It’s all a process. When someone walked off with one of those expensive gazing balls, she came back with bowling balls. The same round shape, right? No one wants to take those. When the noxious stinging nettle appeared, she embraced that too. It’s good for the compost, an antidote to arthritis and makes a pretty good lasagna. Fishman likes to share in her plant swaps, in the column she writes for the Savannah Morning News and in her new book, a poetic, practical, beautiful approach to gardening. 9781495194696< Less
