Birds provide a most effective ecological control of insects, weeds, and small rodents in the gardens and orchards. In the spring, with young in the nest, meat-eating birds feed voraciously on the insect and grub population.
During late summer and autumn, there are many seed-eaters that do a handsome job of cleaning up the weeds. The result is a naturally healthy garden.
Birds can be attracted to your home if you offer food, water, and shelter. This e-handbook can show you what to do, from the choice of bird food and feeders to bird houses and landscaping. Includes recipes for bird food, instructions on how to build bird houses and a list of common bird varieties and how best to attract them. With this handy guide you can create a haven for your favorite birds.

From Asparagus to Zucchini answers the question of what to do with your armloads of greens, exotic herbs and never-before-seen vegetables, with recipes that are as concise and doable as they are appealing.

Soap is supposed to cleanse and soothe skin, but what's available in stores often just dries and irritates. With The Natural Soap Chef anyone can quickly learn how to make all-natural soaps that gently wash even the most sensitive skin. Not only are these soaps good for the body, they beautifully dress up any home with their delicious scents and colors. This book will show you the way your great-grandma made soap, by using the cold process method and the basic components of soap: lye and oil. With easy-to-follow instructions and photos that guarantee success, you'll be a soap-making expert in no time.
The Beekeeper's Bible is as much a guide to the practical essentials of beekeeping as it is a beautiful almanac to read from cover to cover. Written by Richard A. Jones and Sharon Sweeney-Lynch, it's part history book, part handbook and part cookbook. This illustrated tome covers every facet of the ancient hobby of beekeeping, from how to manage hives safely to harvesting one's own honey, and it features ideas for how to use honey and beeswax. Detailed instructions for making candles, furniture polish, beauty products and nearly 100 honey-themed recipes are included. Fully illustrated with how-to photography and unique etchings, The Beekeeper's Bible will provide any backyard enthusiast or gardener with the confidence to dive into beekeeping (or simply daydream about harvesting their own honey while relaxing in the comfort of an armchair).
