          Beyond the polished and predictable grocery store display of Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples, a veritable treasure trove of beautiful and uniquely flavored North American varieties awaits the curious. Up for discovery is a fruit with striking watermelon-colored flesh; a prized cider maker with a rough, russet texture and deep historical roots; an apple that tastes "tart as an unripe persimmon"; and the lost-and-found plight of countless more. Names like Smokehouse and Wolf River even evoke other times and places. These fascinating, unfamiliar apples are poised to become new favorites and banish our apple tunnel vision forever.

          There is no better person to bring you into this world than Tom Burford: apple enthusiast, propagator, and savior. His stories of this rich apple culture span generations (the Burford family has produced fruit in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia since 1715) and follow the apple's waves of popularity in America. The book is brimming with beautiful portraits of heirloom and modern apples of merit, each accompanied by distinguishing characteristics and common uses. As the view broadens to the orchard, you will find information on planting, pruning, grafting and more. The exploration of the apple culminates with an overview of the fruit's transformative capabilities when pressed, fermented, cooked or dried.

          This wonderful reference will encourage you to seek out new flavors and give the apple the respect it deserves. It may even inspire you to carve out the space for an orchard of your own.

          Intended for both small- and medium-size gardens, Improving Your Soil reveals the steps to take to achieve the perfect soil base in which to grow plants. With directions on amending poor soil, modifying mediocre earth, aerating compacted topsoil and substrates, and testing pH levels, this book enables gardeners to nurture their plants and promote more abundant growth.

          The features of good soil include proper structure and nutrients that encourage healthy plant growth. Soil in "good tilth" is loamy, nutrient-rich and friable, because it has an optimal mixture of sand, clay and organic matter that prevents severe compaction. Improving Your Soil shows gardeners how to improve the soil in their garden to encourage good seed bedding and a strong root system for proper nutrient disbursement throughout various soil depths.

          Flower gardeners and vegetable gardeners will all benefit from the tips and methods in Improving Your Soil.

          Topics include:

          • What your soil can tell you about how you need to manage it
          • Soil texture and structure: building soil tilth
          • Using amendments to correct soil problems, such as clay or sandy soil
          • Creating a good environment for plant growth in different situations
          • Providing the right amount of water for plants
          • The teeming microscopic world of soils
          • Building soil organic matter
          • Crop rotations
          • Types of compost and how to make good compost
          • Managing soils to minimize pest and disease problems
          • Feeding the plants: the nutrients they need, and how to get them there
          • Overcoming common nutrient deficiencies
          • Organic vs. mineral fertilizers.

          The detailed information is complemented with line drawings, diagrams and illustrations that demonstrate various soil issues and how to resolve common problems. With information on remedying specific problems with particular plants, Improving Your Soil will be an often-consulted resource for all gardeners.
