  1. Straw Bale Gardens

    Straw Bale Gardens

    The breakthrough method for growing vegetables anywhere, earlier and with no weeding! By Joel Karsten. I love this book! It gives anyone who wants to garden the opportunity to do so; regardless of toxic soils, concrete backyards or lack of space. You can set the bales up anywhere and because they generate heat as the straw decomposes, it gives you a head start in planting and will yield ripe tomatoes weeks before the other gardens in town. Joel shows you how to condition the bales, set up a drip irrigation, and then plant anything that you would in a regular garden. You use very little soil to start the seed or seedlings and the plant will grow right into the fertilized bale. Potatoes gown this way are planted 8-12 inches down the bale, and when it's time to harvest, just knock the bale over and you have the perfectly clean potatoes ready. You can arrange the bales in different ways or even stack them for multilevel or raised bed that is even easy for someone through the winter into a great soil for you to use next year. Straw bales are not full of seeds so you are virtually weed-free in your garden. Softcover 144 pp Learn More

  5. Ducks and Geese

    KEEPING DUCKS AND GEESE

    By Chris & Mike Ashton. While visiting a local garden nursery I saw some Magpie Ducks right in the middle of the garden. The owner raved how they were her best bet for keeping the bugs out of her garden, even following her around waiting for her to lift a tarp so they could reach every last slug beneath it. There are beautiful color photos through the book showing forty of the most popular breeds. This book shows how to select the right one for you, what you need to know to get started and how to care for your birds. Ducks and geese provide tasty eggs, pretty feathers, and the geese will even guard their space. The author also discusses painting eggs, using a quill feather to do calligraphy and some egg recipes.

  11. TOBACCO CULTURE, THE CULTIVATORS HANDBOOK

    TOBACCO CULTURE, THE CULTIVATORS HANDBOOK

    With a reverence for the beauty of nicotiana, Bill Drake writes a comprehensive handbook for the grower of tobacco. In this book you'll find a rich, humorously written, history of the plants in western and eastern cultures. Exposing greed at both corporate and government levels, Drake advises farmers, step by step, on how to produce organic tobacco products for individual consumption, or as a small cottage industry. Although the growing, curing, flavoring, and cutting procedures abundantly described herein are essential to an ingestible product, we found the prose most delightful with records of past practices and the influence of religious and political powers on the distribution of tobacco.
