  4. Growing Organic Food

    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

  11. Self Watering Containers

    INCREDIBLE VEG FROM SELF WATERING CONT ***sold out***

    by Edward C Smith. The biggest problem with growing vegetables in containers is the soil dries out and loses nutrients quickly. After extensive experimentation, Ed Smith developed his "amazing POTS System" to solve those issues. POTS stands for portable, organic, trouble free, and secret soil formula. Self-watering containers, which can be bought or made, are key factors. They have water reservoirs and false bottoms that separate soil from the water, allowing air to reach the soil. Wicking systems move water from the reservoir to the soil. It's important to pair the right sized pot and reservoir capacity with the specific crop, along with an appropriate soil mix. Smith details the specific needs of a wide variety of vegetables, offers advice of best varieties for container growing and provides organic pest and disease solutions. Softcover 254pp. Learn More

  12. 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.
