  1. Growing Organic Food


    by Tania L K Denckla. When Tania Denckla started to garden organically in the early 1900's, she couldn't find one source that gave her all the information she desired. So she started researching and compiling a database of the knowledge she felt she needed. After four years, she had a book. We're glad to see it came together because it's still hard to find a good, complete reference. And this one has it all! For each vegetable, herb, fruit or nut, she provides all the vital information - temperature for germination and growth, seed starting dates, soil, water, and fertilizer needs, planting depth, root depth, plant spacing, support and pruning (if needed), pests, diseases, companion plants, cultivation, harvest, and storage. She also describes outstanding varieties of each crop. Additionally, 140 pages address organic remedies for "macro and microdestructive agents" (bugs etc). Denckla has indeed created the reference she needed. Softcover 485pp Learn More

  7. 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.

  9. Let it Rot


    by Stu Campbell. The modern practice of composting is little more than speeding up and intensifying natural processes. With landfills overflowing it just makes sense to compost. Not only does it reduce waste - but it also builds up the soil tremendously. In this book, Stu Campbell explains how composting works, different types of composting, different organic materials, methods to speed up decomposition and how it helps your soil. Compost also has the ability to suppress plant diseases such as damping off, powdery and downy mildews and late blight of potatoes. You also have trouble shooting tips throughout the book to help with any problems, but as Stu tell us - successful composting requires the realization that no matter what you do, no matter how many mistakes you make, you are still probably going to come up with reasonably good, usable compost.
