CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

North American’s love gardening but what could be worse than convincing them that growing their own food is difficult. With the world at or beyond peak oil, and the threat of climate change demanding we eat closer to home there has never been a better time to start growing vegetables. The great news is that it really is easy and a huge source of joy and accomplishment for gardeners to start turning backyards into produce departments. Previous limited space and intensive gardening books make gardening look difficult. There’s too many charts. Too many checklists to tick off. Too much talk of trace minerals and hard to find soil supplements. Growing vegetables is not hard. In fact it’s hard not to do it well, so a book shouldn’t intimidate people. That’s why The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook is such a breath of fresh air.

It assures people there’s nothing to it, but they should just get out there and do it. With basic tips and techniques it provides some tools but not to the point of keeping people out of the garden all together thinking they’ll miss some important part of the “system”.

As a motivator it provides some background on how energy intensive the North American diet is and how fossil fuel resource depletion will lead to us spending an every increasing percentage of our incomes on food. With many hard hit by the economic crisis, growing your own food simply makes economic sense. To further motivate readers The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook gives readers the incredible health benefits of each of the vegetables and fruits they grown. Sure, Grandma always told us to eat our vegetables but as adults it’s nice to know about all the incredible health benefits of each item you’re growing. Suddenly the cancer fighting properties of the broccoli provide a whole new motivation to start growing it yourself. And having strategies for harvesting rainwater, watering with drip irrigation and dealing with some of the challenges our changing climate may throw at you help you helps taylor the information to each readers unique growing circumstances.

Whether you’ve got a small city lot, a typical suburban backyard or a large country property The All You Can Eat Gardening Handbook is the tool you need to get motivated to start growing healthy, local, inexpensive and soil and soul enriching vegetables today!

Winter and early spring require a different kind of gardening than the summer months: Not a lot grows at this time, but a well-planned plot may nonetheless be quite full.

This book explains how to have plenty of vegetables to eat during the winter months, both stored and fresh. Through winter, soil is cool and transforms the plot into a large outdoor larder where many vegetables keep healthy and alive, ready for harvesting when needed.

In the pages of this book, you'll discover:

  • How to grow your own food for the "hungry gap" from April to June
  • How to store food for eating in winter
  • A monthly sowing, planting and growing calendar
  • Harvesting advice from garlic in July to spring cabbage and pea shoots in May
  • Stunning photographs from the author’s garden
About the Author: Charles Dowding has grown vegetables and salads organically for more than 25 years in Somerset, England, using surface composting methods. He started growing vegetables commercially in 1982 with one of the first vegetable-box schemes, and is currently farming an acre, selling about 200 salad bags of different sizes every week. He has written about surface composting in his book Organic Gardening: The Natural No-Dig Way.

GARDENING WITHOUT WORK

Ruth Stout
Paperback

Price: $18.95

Garden expert and lovable eccentric Ruth Stout once said, "At the age of 87 I grow vegetables for two people the year-round, doing all the work myself and freezing the surplus. I tend several flower beds, write a column every week, answer an awful lot of mail, do the housework and cooking-and never do any of these things after 11 o'clock in the morning!"

How does it work? "And now let's get down to business. The labor-saving part of my system is that I never plow, spade, sow a cover crop, harrow, hoe, cultivate, weed, water or irrigate, or spray. I use just one fertilizer (cottonseed or soybean meal), and I don't go through the tortuous business of building a compost pile. Just yesterday, under the 'Questions and Answers' in a big reputable farm paper, someone asked how to make a compost pile and the editor explained the arduous performance. After I read this I lay there on the couch and suffered because the victim's address wasn't given; there was no way I could reach him."

Regardless of topic, Ruth Stout's writing is always about living a joyous and independent life, and Gardening Without Work is no exception! This book is a treasure for the gardener and a delight even to the non-gardener. First published in 1961, this is an exact reproduction of the original edition, with illustrations by Nan Stone.

About the author:
Ruth Stout, who, in her teens helped temperance activist Carrie Nation smash saloon windows, could turn any aspect of life into an adventure. She may have been the only woman who both gardened in the nude and wrote a book on being a hostess, Company Coming: Six Decades of Hospitality. She died in 1980 at the age of 96.
