New Gardening Books Cropping Up at MCPL
July 12, 2010
I can’t say that I enjoy gardening or any type of farming, except in the virtual world of Facebook’s Farmville. To be honest, I’ve even lost a few crops on Farmville. My idea of enjoying the summer bounty is going to my neighborhood Farmers’ Market on Saturday morning and selecting the fresh, homegrown fruits, and vegetables that hard-working local farmers offer throughout the growing season.
For those of you who prefer to get your hands dirty and be one with the earth, there is a large variety of vegetable gardening books available at the MCPL. Some of the newest titles are:
- The Everything Grow Your Own Vegetables Book: your complete guide to planting,tending and harvesting vegetables by Catherine Abbott
- One Magic Square: the easy, organic way to grow your own food on a 3-foot square by Lolo Houbein
- Talking Dirt: the dirt diva’s down-to-earth guide to organic gardening by Annie Spiegelman
- The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible: discover Ed’s high-yield W-O-R-D system for all North American gardening regions by Edward C. Smith
- Grow Great Grub: organic food from small spaces by Gayla Trail
I am grateful that I can rely on the hometown farmers to share their love of gardening with local citizens like me. I may not be motivated to grow fruits and veggies myself, but I can help you find new and up-to-date resources available to assist you in growing the very best. Come visit your local library and share in these rich resources!
