  2. Four Season Harvest

    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

  4. Food From Small Spaces

    FRESH 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
