It’s Friday and I have absolutely no motivation to work so thought I would share my book list. I believe if you want to do a good job at something you need a good resource library – or maybe I just like to buy books :-)! Anyway, here is what I’ve been buying lately:
Crisis Preparedness Handbook (Jack Spigarelli) – a good resource for food and water storage and other stuff
Gardening When it Counts (Stteve Solomon) – promotes tilling, not raised beds
Small Batch Preserving (Ellie Topp & Margaret Howard) – lots of simple recipes for preserving what you grow
Root Cellaring (Mike Bubel) – looks good, haven’t read it yet
Lasagna Gardening (Patricia Lanza) – promotes raised bed, not tilling – somebody help me make a decision!!!!
How to Grow More Vegetables…(John Jeavon) – promotes double-digging 24″ deep beds – NO THANK YOU!! but has lots of other good information
Seed to Seed (Suzanne Ashworth) how to save seeds from what you grow – looks good, haven’t read it yet since I haven’t grown anything yet!
Gaia’s Garden (Toby Hemenway) on permaculture
Square Foot Gardening (Mel Bartholomew) DVD – haven’t watched it yet, but the concept looks good
another heirloom seed source – Bountiful Gardens – great 2009 catalog
Have a great day – keep it simple
