        CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

        In the latter half of the twentieth century, the percentage of the total American population living in suburbs grew to nearly 50 percent. Fossil fuels were cheap and plentiful, and car-dependent, energy-intensive lifestyles came hand-in-hand with this demographic transition. In the age of Peak Oil, environmental catastrophe and a failing economy it is imperative that we transform the suburbs into sustainable communities.

        Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs envisions a suburban evolution -- from isolated cookie-cutter houses with manicured lawns and 2-car garages to small, closely packed, productive, interdependent homesteads. This guide to simplifying suburbia and adopting a lower energy lifestyle breaks down all our basic needs and describes how they might be met after the loss of the modern conveniences we currently take for granted. From small-space gardening techniques and a guide to small livestock, to tips on cooking, heating, and sanitation options and much more, this is a complete guide to becoming more self-sufficient wherever you live.

        Required reading for anyone interested in increased self-reliance and a lower carbon footprint, Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs will help you look past the white picket fence to a new world of possibilities.

        CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $24.00. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

        Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory is a must-have reference for all backyard fruit growers and commercial orchardists who care about the rich diversity of fruit, berry and nut varieties offered by mail order nurseries in the United States This comprehensive “catalog of catalogs” is now available in its newly updated fourth edition, which lists 280 nurseries offering nearly 6,000 varieties of fruits, berries and nuts — everything from apples and bananas to tangerines and buartnuts.

        The information presented in this book is so unique and invaluable that fruit growers everywhere will turn to it again and again, looking for sources that offer rare nineteenth-century apples, or for descriptions of newly bred grapes, or even for unusual varieties of tropical fruits. Where else could you find sources for Maiden Blush apple (1817), African Rhino Horn banana, Leningrad Giant currant, Adriatic fig, Pineapple grape, Dr. Beaumont macadamia, Choctaw pecan or Yellow Egg plum?

        Backyard and commercial growers concerned with the loss of biodiversity will deeply appreciate Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory. Fruit breeders, plant collectors and amateur growers can tell quickly which varieties are being offered by only one or two companies and need to be purchased while sources still exist and permanently maintained to prevent being lost forever. Everything commercially available can be scanned to find varieties perfect for specific climates or resistant to local diseases and pests. Northern and high-altitude growers can use the book to find exceptionally hardy, short-season varieties that will survive and mature in their locations. Orchards, nurseries and botanical gardens can use it to find sources for unique plant material.

        The fruits, berries and nuts available today are the result of centuries of collection and amateur development, further refined by the world’s finest breeding programs. Growers and breeders have developed regionally adapted varieties with superior taste, disease resistance and countless other virtues. Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory opens the orchard’s gate and invites us to discover them.

        CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $14.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

        Although the garden may beckon as strongly as ever, the tasks involved — pulling weeds, pushing wheelbarrows, digging holes, moving heavy pots — become increasingly difficult, or even impossible, with advancing age. But the idea of giving it up is unthinkable for most gardeners. So what’s the alternative?

        In Gardening for a Lifetime, now in paperback, author Sydney Eddison draws on her own forty years of gardening to provide a practical and encouraging roadmap for scaling back while keeping up with the gardening activities that each gardener loves most. Like replacing demanding plants like delphiniums with sturdy, relatively carefree perennials like sedums, rudbeckias, and daylilies. Or taking the leap and hiring help — another pair of hands, even for a few hours a week, goes a long way toward getting a big job done. Or maybe it makes sense to get rid of high-maintenance trees, shrubs, or perennials.

        The paperback edition features a new chapter in which Eddison’s struggles with hip and back problems force her to walk the walk. As a friend of hers says, “Last summer you wrote the book. Now, I’m happy to see that you’ve read it.” Gentle, personable, and practical, Gardening for a Lifetime will be welcomed by all gardeners looking to transform gardening from a list of daunting chores into the rewarding, joy-filled activity it was meant to be.

        For the food-loving gardener, Mark Diacono has a new mantra: Life is too short to grow ordinary food.

Selected for their deliciousness and ease of growing, the fruits and vegetables in the book come with straightforward gardening advice and detailed information on how and when to harvest.

        Everyone wants healthy children who choose potatoes over chips and oranges over Oreos, but it isn't always easy to convince a picky child to try something new.

        The Family Kitchen Garden integrates the garden and kitchen in a simple, fun way that parents and children can enjoy together. By teaching kids how to garden, they will be more likely to eat what they grow — what a rewarding way to encourage healthy foods!

        Unlike other guides to gardening with children, these are not simple projects just for kids. Rather, the authors believe that kids can do — and will enjoy — the same type of gardening that adults do. Part One focuses on the nitty-gritty of gardening with kids: how to keep sessions short, tips on how much to grow, and important safety precautions. Part Two is a month-by-month guide on what to sow, plant, harvest, and eat. Seasonal recipes include nutritious, kid-friendly foods like parsnip chips, rhubarb cake, and homemade ketchup. Part Three is an A–Z guide to vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers. Icons note which are plants particularly easy to grow and suitable for young children.

        The Family Kitchen Garden is for parents who want to get their kids outside and for families looking for simple ways to lead a healthier life. Grab your kids and get gardening!

A chapter on seeds and germination will encourage gardeners at any level to try their hand at propagation, while discussion of soil, pests, and diseases adds to the skills of all gardeners. The final sections of the book take a closer look at biodiversity, ecology, genetic engineering, and nomenclature.
