    By Eric Franks and Jasmine Richardson. This expanding style of gardening has become very popular and demand has increased our own seed section of microgreens. Eric and Jasmine were first introduced to microgreens while staying at Elliot Colemans 4 Season Farm in Harbourside, Maine. After they left, they traveled to coastal California to start their own farm. Land was hard to find so they started with a small mountainside place growing microgreens for local restaurants. In this book they share with you how to plant, grow and harvest the most nutrient dense greens available. You will find that they can be easily grown in pots or trays on your porch, patio, deck, balcony or windowsill and enjoyed with recipes from some of Californias Big Sur chefs.

In this marvelous look at herbaceous plants, Carol Klein categorizes them by personality traits and shows how mixing diverse personalities makes a vibrant garden.

Also to be found are the Will-O-the-Wisps and Wafty Whisperers that add light and movement, Prickly Customers and Soft Touches, that add texture, and the Dainty and Detailed. Making bolder statements are the Gatecrashers, uninvited self-seeders, the Seductive Sophisticates, subtle yet charismatic, and those Drama Queens that demand attention.

Each plants personality is further showcased in exquisite close-up color photographs (most full page) that are works of art themselves and would be lovely framed.

    by Anne Halpin. Ahh - to be lucky enough to have to deal with issues of gardening by the seashore! However, envy aside, seaside gardening has many difficult issues - strong winds that blow in a brace of sand and drying salt, sandy soil, fog, cool springs, fall hurricanes, and winter Nor'easters. The solutions involve growing adaptive plants and creating sheltered havens for less hardy plants. Halpin first offers a brief geography lesson of the area covered in her book, Maine to the Carolinas. Then she discusses planning, design, structures, hardscapes, planting, care, and winterizing for seashore gardens. Then comes the fun part - garden profiles of gorgeous seashore gardens - interesting stories and gardens to lust after! You'll enjoy visiting these gardens and viewing color photos of the lovely landscapes. Another 80 page section showcases trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses that are proven seaside survivors.

  10. Solar Gardening


    Growing Vegetables Year Round the American Intensive Way. By Leandre Poisson and Gretchen Vogel Poisson. After reading their initial tirade on ecological doom if we don't develop an organic "solar peasantry", one discovers that the Poissons are really quite amiable people and ingenious farmers. In their 20 years of gardening and research, with a goal of self sufficiency they developed "American Intensive Gardening" - a continuous food producing system in which deep fertile soil and heat assisting devices optimize growing conditions year round. Their extensive findings cover: continuous food harvests in all US zones, soil improvement (with a detailed analysis of soil additives), planting, propagation, harvest, storage, seed saving, and growing over 90 vegetables. Their true genius shines in their "appliances" - several simple, do-it-yourself passive solar devices. They give detailed direction for building your own. Softcover 288pp. Learn More

  11. Solviva


    How to Grow $500,000 on One Acre & Peace on Earth By Anna Edey Isn't that title a grabber? What more could one ask for? Wait, there is more in the second subtitle: "Revealing the Truth About How We Can Provide Electricity, Heating, Cooling, Transportation, Food, Solid Waste and Wastewater Management in Ways that Reduce Pollution and Depletion of Resources by 80 percent or more, and that At The Same Time Reduce Cost of Living and Improve Quality of Life". At first glance, Anna Edey may sound a little 'out there', but isn't that what we need; people who venture beyond conventional thinking to solve problems? Edey has been working on these solutions from her farm in Martha's Vineyard since 1977 and has developed a remarkable "solar dynamic, bio-benign" living system. Edey wisely began her book with a lengthy section of color photographs of her farm, greenhouse, and waste management system that will convince you it exists and works. It will also make you envious of her lifestyle with year-round tomato plants and a salad garden in the kitchen, and a greenhouse that produces 1600 servings of her famous organic salad mix a day; without an artificial heat source! Edey relates the remarkable story of the development of her farm, her research and experiments with greener living designs, and the details of constructing and maintaining them. She also issues a "Call to Action" where she envisions grander uses for her designs; greener schools, businesses, municipal solid waste facilities, even the White House! Softcover 224 pp Learn More
