Complete Organic Gardening was Jonathan Sturm's first book, published in 1992 by Southern Holdings. It had its beginnings as a comprehensive series of facts sheets I called OGNotes.

This strategy appears to have worked; my readers still regularly telephone to congratulate me. And ask where they can get a copy.
