Here is what Lieutenant Colonel Denny Gillem US Army (retired) has to say about Rick’s new book Operation Rumination…

“I believe that this is the most unique book I have ever read.  Rick never served in our military in any way — yet, he has always been a patriot and a good citizen, and he touched the hearts of those men and women and shares what he learned and experienced with accuracy, dignity, and grace.”

-Denny Gillem Lieutenant Colonel, US Army (Retired) Host, Frontlines of Freedom

Stories and well rooted advice for both your plants and your everyday life amassed over 25 years of live broadcast radio talking to people just like you. A personal and vulnerable book of how both plants and your life parallel in surprising ways. Rick Vuyst just “wet his plants” and now you have permission to wet your plants too. In the words of a guest on his radio show:

“This is not a book about being a great gardener, in fact it is about the process of becoming a joyful gardener. Rick Vuyst has spent a good deal of his life amassing stories, ideas and more importantly, experiences. He shares those freely and allows us to participate in his journeys, his insights and his love of this thing we call gardening. Gardening is not brain surgery, and he encourages to have fun and to experiment. Thank you Rick, I am killing more plants as we speak.”
– Dr. Allan Armitage Professor Emeritus of Horticulture University of Georgia
