  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. Let it Rot

    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.
