The $64 Tomato by William Alexander

Find in catalogCity boy William Alexander and his family move from Yonkers, New York to a small northeastern town, where they find their dream home, a dilapidated fixer upper on a three acre piece of land. The family renovates the house and proceeds to build 22 raised beds for their garden. Alexander battles the yellow clay soil, deer, insects, the weather, and a giant groundhog named “Superchuck” while trying to grow his heirloom tomatoes and other produce. The stories are very funny, and any one who gardens will relate to the author’s trials.
