New Garden Books, Sprouts & Herbed Marinated Dried Tomatoes
New Garden Books
We are constantly searching for useful and affordable gardening books for you and have come across a couple from the UK that really fit the bill. Both of these are what we consider “foundational” books, meaning that they help build the foundation of understanding and knowledge in and about your garden.
“Earthworms: Nature’s Gardeners” shows the natural history of these extremely useful animals, and how to harness their activities to benefit your garden and the environment. Practical advice on harnessing the composting benefits of earthworms, so that household waste can be converted to marvelous fertilizer.
“Garden Beetles” takes you through the ecological services they provide which give them keystone positions in the complex networks of food chains. Some of those services include dead matter disposal, pollinators and beneficial predators. This is a very good introduction to the beetle driven microcosms that are vital components of garden ecology.

Fresh Sprouts for Fall
Have you thought about starting to grow something fresh and tasty this fall, but just don’t know where to begin?
We have found a way to start small that has an excellent success rate and is delicious.
Sprouts can be grown in any climate, at any time of year, with no soil, sunlight or space requirements and contains more nutrients per calorie than any other type of food. Four square inches on a countertop is all that they need.
Sprouts are nutritional powerhouses- packed with minerals, protein, amino acids and the enzymes needed to digest them. All of this is available in 4-6 days for smaller sprouts or 7-8 days for larger, leafier, greener sprouts, also known as micro-greens.
