  3. Country Living


    Updated 10th edition By Carla Emery This is a remarkable book in many ways. Its sheer size is impressive, an 8 1/2 x 11 inch format with 885 pages. The fact that it is the effort of a single author is even more noteworthy, especially when you learn that Carla Emery spent 30 years working on this book, while at the same time, homesteading and raising seven children! She has accumulated the information for at least a dozen books in one volume. We were continually amazed at the breadth of information included here. In chapters on vegetables, herbs, and fruits, there were far more varieties mentioned than in entire books we carry on those subjects (124 herbs, for instance!). There is a very complete chapter on raising a wide variety of grasses, grains, and canes that include: amaranth, millet, quinoa, rice, sorghum (with broom-making directions) sugar cane, wheat and much more. There are also extensive sections on farm animals: poultry, goats, cows, home dairying, bees, rabbits, sheep and pigs. Favorite recipes and further resources are scattered throughout. In a time of too many slick publications, Carla Emery's sincerity is truly refreshing. This expanded updated edition includes mail order source information with email and website addresses. It also includes more of Emery's personal advice, reflections and antidotes. Softcover 885 pp? Learn More

  5. Exotic Planting


    by Christopher Lloyd. Christopher delighted and shocked some summer visitors when he replaced an 80 year old Lutyens-designed rose garden with his exotic one. He used bold combinations of palms, cut leafed sumac and arching New Zealand flax with cannas and dahlias, which were woven with verbena and annual climbers. This combination added dazzling color from June until the first frosts. His book starts with hardy structural plants, then adds exotic perennials and shrubs. He continues his garden explosion with annuals and then finishes with exotic edibles in pots. He gives generous information about these plants to encourage you to try an exotic oasis for yourself.

  7. Food Not Lawns


    by H.C. Flores. Heather Flores has a vision - of healthy, connected communities that expand to create a healthier more connected world. It's a big vision, so where to start? Flores starts with out lawns, big or small, your own or shared space. She proposes that if we use this space to grow our own food, or even better share that food, we have begun the process toward healthier community, both physically and spiritually. To get us started, she devotes a good portion of the book towards gardening. She is a certified permaculture designer, so her gardens are designed to be low maintenance, edible ecosystems that engender ecological health. Her book is bursting with concrete ideas for attaining such systems - ecological soil building, water recycling, and much more. She also believes gardening should be low cost and has great ideas for scrounging and adapting. After the garden section, Flores pushes us to go beyond the personal to reduce our collective impact on the world by re-examining life styles and consumer choices. (Flores manages to live happily on $6,000 a year.) She offers great ideas for creating stronger community through gardening and low impact living. Softcover 334pp. Learn More

  9. Four Season Harvest


    by Eliot Coleman. When Eliot Coleman claimed that in mid January in Maine (where it gets down to -20 degrees F), he harvests 18-20 fresh vegetables, it seemed unbelievable. Take a closer look and you'll discover he opened up a whole new venture in gardening. Note he says 4 season harvest, not growing. His system depends on constantly clearing out spent crops, and replanting with crops appropriate to the coming season so that one always has a fresh crop to harvest. His system for extending the harvest season is based on the use of cold frames, plastic tunnels, root cellars, and hardy vegetables. Coleman does not use a greenhouse or any fancy heating systems. His aim is for utmost simplicity in achieving his goal of fresh, flavorful vegetables year round. Softcover 236 pp. Learn More

  11. Food From Small Spaces


    by R.J. Ruppenthal. When the author says "small spaces" here, he's talking "square inch" city gardening. Ruppenthal, a longtime city gardener, claims that an urban apartment dweller can grow 10-20% of their families fresh food (more with a backyard or patio) without resorting to energy intensive hydroponics or indoor greenhouses. How? First, he discusses growing vegetables in available space and light levels. He shows how to build self-watering containers, use vertical space and reflected light, cycle crops, extend the season and grow fruits and berries in containers. Other options for producing your own food are also explored. These include sprouting seeds, making yogurt, kefir, and fermented foods (culturing foods increases their nutritional value), and cultivating mushrooms (great for dark spaces or shady yards). He even discusses raising chickens for eggs and honeybees. Many cities zoning laws do in fact allow a limited number of chickens. Another section explores composting and worm beds and a final chapter offers tips for getting along during resource shortages in the city. Softcover 240pp. Learn More
