        Based on the James Beard Award–winning blog The One-Block Diet, this all-in-one home gardening, do-it-yourself guide and cookbook shows you how to transform a backyard or garden into a self-sufficient locavore’s paradise.

        When Margo True and her fellow staffers at Northern California–based Sunset magazine walked around the grounds of their Menlo Park office, they saw more than just a lawn and some gardens. Instead, they saw a fresh, bountiful food source, the makings for intrepid edible projects, and a series of seasonal feasts — all just waiting to happen.

        The One-Block Feast is the story of how True and her team took an inspired idea and transformed it into an ambitious commitment: to create four feasts over the course of a year, using only what could be grown or raised in their backyard-sized plot. She candidly shares the group’s many successes and often humorous setbacks as they try their hands at chicken farming, cheese making, olive pressing, home brewing, beekeeping, winemaking and more.

        Grouped into gardening, project and recipe guides for each season, The One-Block Feast is a complete resource for planning an eco-friendly kitchen garden; making your own pantry staples for year-round cooking and gifts; raising bees, chickens and even a cow; and creating made-from-scratch meals from ingredients you’ve grown yourself. Chapters are organized by season, each featuring a planting plan and crop-by-crop instructions, an account of how that season’s projects played out for the Sunset team, and a multicourse dinner menu composed of imaginative, appealing and ultra-resourceful vegetarian recipes, such as:

        Butternut Squash Gnocchi With Chard and Sage Brown Butter, Egg and Gouda Crepes, Whole Wheat Pizzas With Roasted Vegetables and Homemade Cheeses, Fresh Corn Soup With Zucchini Blossoms, Braised Winter Greens With Preserved Lemons and Red Chile, Summer Lemongrass Custards, Honey Ice Cream

        Generously illustrated and easy to follow, this ultimate resource for today’s urban homesteader will inspire you to take “eating local” to a whole new level.

        Recommended Product for Wiser Living: Today, more than ever before, our society is seeking ways to live more conscientiously. To help bring you the very best inspiration and information about greener, more sustainable lifestyles, MOTHER EARTH NEWS is recommending books to readers. For 40 years, MOTHER EARTH NEWS has been North America’s “Original Guide to Living Wisely,” creating books and magazines for people with a passion for self-reliance and a desire to live in harmony with nature.

        Daughter of Iowa farmers, Missouri homesteader and mother of five, Diane Ott Whealy never anticipated that one day she would become a leader in a grass-roots movement to preserve our agricultural biodiversity. The love for the land and the respect for heirloom seeds that Ott Whealy shared with her husband, Kent, led to their starting Seed Savers Exchange in 1975.

        Seed Savers Exchange, the nation’s premier nonprofit seed-saving organization, began humbly as a simple exchange of seeds among passionate gardeners who sought to preserve the rich gardening heritage their ancestors had brought to this country. Seeds that Ott Whealy herself inherited from her paternal grandparents were the impetus for the formation of Seed Savers Exchange, whose membership has grown from a small coterie to more than 13,000. Its influence has been felt in gardens across America.

        Ott Whealy’s down-to-earth narrative traces her fascinating journey from Oregon to Kansas to Missouri then back home to Iowa where, in 1986, Heritage Farm became the permanent home of Seed Savers Exchange. Her heartwarming story captures what is best in the American spirit: the ability to dream and, through hard work and perseverance, inspire others to contribute their efforts to a cause. Thus was created one of the nation’s most admired nonprofits in the field of genetic preservation.

        A windowsill is among the best possible places to put a plant that provides ample sunlight, brightens the look of your home from the outside, and adds what amounts to a filter to the air coming in and out of your home. In winter, they can add a touch of color to an otherwise drab view, and in summer they thrive. But not every plant grows well in these conditions: According to Garden Guides, as many as 40 percent of most houseplants don't need nearly that much sunlight. The selection of the right houseplants for your windowsill is a necessary step to ensuring they survive and thrive.

        This book will guide you through the steps needed to select the perfect plants for your windowsill and cultivate them to both fit in with your space and to survive the conditions, whether inside or outside. You will learn everything you need to know to effectively plant windowsill plants and improve how your home and your windows look to the world outside. You will learn, through a series of detailed charts, which plants are best suited to the cramped space of a windowsill and which ones will only give you problems. You will learn how much light each plant needs and how much water and food they need and whether you need to supplement natural provision of these resources. You will learn how to care for your plants while keeping away pests and animals that may eat the leaves or dig up the dirt.

        Top experts in gardening have been interviewed and their insights will help you learn what works and what doesn't work for your windowsill plants. From first planting, whether by seed or potted plant, you will have every resource you need to keep your windowsill plants alive and thriving in their new environment with this book.

        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.
