The resurgence in home food production has generated a dramatic increase in interest about growing under cover. The season is far longer (year-round for salads and some vegetables) and you can grow exciting fruit and vegetables that aren't viable outdoors. Thanks to the polytunnel, covered growing is now available to all. And sales of polytunnels are burgeoning, as gardeners and allotment-holders realize that they could be growing more food (and more exotic food) on a smaller plot, whatever the weather outside is doing. The Polytunnel Book is the first comprehensive, practical illustrated guide to polytunnel gardening, for both beginners and experienced gardeners.

Anneli Carter-Sundqvist, the co-owner of Deer Isle Hostel, recently released her new book A Homesteader's Year on Deer Isle. This collection of blog posts originally published on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS website takes readers through a whole year of living on an off-the-grid homestead.

Carter-Sundqvist and her husband, Dennis, grow a year's supply of food, raise pigs and chickens, and produce their own building materials, garden amendments and energy. Here, she recounts the day-to-day stories about digging out new garden space, swimming in the pond, chasing the pigs and preserving 150 heads of cabbage. She also shares her political and philosophical reasons for why, in the 21st century, homesteading and living off the land is not just something from the past but rather a sensible, dignifying and viable option for the future.

When Tony Avent announced that he was quitting his job to build a specialty nursery, his former horticulture professor begged his student to reconsider, telling him he couldn't possibly make a profit "without doing something illegal." More than 10 years and 20 nursery catalogs later, Avent owns a thriving national business with nearly 30 employees. He wrote So You Want to Start a Nursery to debunk myths about the ornamental-plants nursery business and what it takes to succeed, whether you're a backyard hobbyist or a wholesale grower. (And he still has a clean arrest record.)

Assuming that the reader has some basic knowledge about how plants are grown, Avent focuses on the business and planning concerns of the nursery owner. While recounting humorous stories of his baptism by fire as a beginning nurseryman, Avent also provides a primer on the nursery industry as a whole, with discussions of the merits and disadvantages of retail, wholesale, mail-order and liner operations, to name just a few. Readers of this book will obtain the tools they need to make a business plan of their own. This book is a must-read for horticulture students, industry insiders and advanced gardeners who dream of turning their passion for plants into a job they love.
