    YOUR FARM IN THE CITY

  2. Giant Pumpkins

    WORLD CLASS GIANT PUMPKINS

    By Don Langevin. This is the forth book that Don has written on giant pumpkins. Here, Don takes a new, organic approach to growing them and also introduces the concept of the Soil Food Web for maximizing the potential of plants. He gives you a complete history of giant pumpkin growing since the rise in weights in 1857 and the modern history starting in 1976. The lineage of the Atlantic Giant Pumpkin, (which we sell) the only variety used by competitive pumpkin growers, is explored in a way that shows the genetics of the present day Atlantic Giant and also gives information on soil preparation, seed selection, seed starting, protection, critter control, pollination, insects and diseases, estimating weight, lifting and more. Since Langevins first book in 1993, the world record has gone from 827 pounds to 1689 pounds with more that 135 1300 pound pumpkins sanctioned at regional weigh offs. This book also includes many colorful photos of the pumpkins and the people who have grown them. Softcover 194 pp Learn More

  3. Wisdom of the Last Farmer

    WISDOM OF THE LAST FARMER

    By David Mas Masumoto. In this book, the author chronicles the three generations of farmers in his family who have been shaped by the land, and their ideals, to bring us a meaningful and and thoughtful view into the world of modern farming. We go to our local grocery store and buy a peach, take it home, and hope it will soften and ripen without spoiling. Very few of us know the difference between a store bought peach and the exquisite experience of biting into a juicy heirloom peach that has been picked at full ripeness. This is the story of David Mas Masumoto and others like him who have kept alive farming traditions that offer us treasures like this so all of us may enjoy some of lifes simplest pleasures, even in the face of mounting costs, pressure from large companies and shrinking profitability. A reminder of the important and thankless job small farmers have in the modern agriculture world. Hardcover. 239 pp. Pub at $25.00. Learn More

  4. Wildlife Gardeners Guide

    WILDLIFE GARDENERS GUIDE

    by Janet Marinelli. This Brooklyn Botanic Garden Guide is just packed with specific suggestions for attracting wildlife in all regions of the country. The author says she found most wildlife gardening guides too general, so she developed 10 projects with step-by-step directions for each. They can be incorporated into existing gardens or started from scratch. The projects are: Bird Gardens, Stopover Gardens for Migrators, Evergreen Refuges, Flower Borders, Container Gardens for Wildlife, Butterfly Gardens, Water for Wildlife, Beneficial Insect Buffet, and Housing Projects. They focus on using native plants since wildlife have co-evolved with natives and are more attracted by them. Each plan lists plants for each region of the country. Superb color photos offer close-up views of the wonders of wildlife gardening. Softcover 119 pp. Learn More

  5. Wild Moments

    WILD MOMENTS

    by Ted Williams. Ted Williams, the environmental and nature writer (not the Bosoxs "Splendid Splinter") shares here a collection of his seasonal observations. Williams is a keen observer and each essay is about a single moment he has witnessed. He explains the natural phenomena behind these moments and tells readers where to go and what to look for so they may also try to observe such events. Along with teaching about various plants, animals, birds, and insects, Williams is also showing the reader how to "see", how to observe the marvels of the natural world. His essays follow the cycle of one year and included instances witnessed in all parts of the country. He calls these moments "retreats into what is pure and clean and right with the world". Reading these beautifully composed essays indeed refreshed the spirit. Hardcover 192pp PUB at $22.95 Learn More

  7. Water Gardens

    WATER GARDENS

    by Yvonne Rees and Neil Sutherland. Water gardens, once a rarity, are available to any energetic do-it-yourselfer. Materials can be obtained at most garden centers or around the house. We like this book because its 16 projects are on the simpler end of the water feature scale. Most are in containers - water gardens, bog gardens and fountains. Others involve adding novelty water features or a waterfall to the garden. The book also has much other useful information for water gardeners. It covers the basics such as styles, liners, edgings, and installing water pumps, filters, and fountains. It also has an extensive plant section beginning with waterlilies, other floaters, and oxygenators and spreading out to the marginal moisture loving plants that help fit the water garden in the landscape. Numerous color photos adorn each page. Hardcover 140pp pub at $22.95 Learn More
