          A Gardener's Notebook is designed to become a family heirloom, its pages filled with the story of your life in the garden. It is a story you will write, about dreams and hard work, setbacks and victories. Whether it's a tiny patch or grand acreage, it's yours and you love it (most of the time!). No doubt, friends, dogs and family will make appearances in your journal too, and that's as it should be.

          When organic gardeners Doug Oster and Jessica Walliser wrote their book, Grow Organic, they hoped to also create a companion book, a garden journal that conveyed the same helpful, neighborly spirit. And so, here it is, A Gardener's Notebook, with occasional appearances by Doug and Jess, dropping off some tips and stories of their own … like making your own ''compost tea,'' planting veggie seeds that thrive, keeping the bad bugs away and inviting the good bugs in.

          But most of all, it's about simply enjoying life in your garden

          THE SEED UNDERGROUND

          Across the country, a renaissance of local food, farming and place-based culinary traditions is taking hold. And yet something small, critically important and profoundly at risk is being overlooked in this local food resurgence: seeds. We are losing our seeds. Of the thousands of seed varieties available at the turn of the 20th century, 94 percent have been lost forever.

          With a signature lyricism that once prompted a New York Times writer to proclaim her the Rachel Carson of the South, author Janisse Ray (Ecology of a Cracker Childhood) brings us the inspiring stories of ordinary gardeners whose aim is to save time-honored open-pollinated varieties like Old Time Tennessee muskmelon and Long County Longhorn okra-varieties that will be lost if people don't grow, save, and swap the seeds.

          From rural Maine to Oregon's Palouse, Ray introduces readers to dozens of seed savers like the eccentric sociology professor she dubs "Tomato Man" and Maine farmer Will Bonsall, the "Noah" of seed saving who juggles hundreds of seeds, many grown by him, and him alone. And Ray tells her own story: of watching her grandmamma save squash seed; of her own first tiny garden at the edge of a junkyard; of falling in love with heirloom and local varieties as a young woman; and the one seed (Conch cowpea) that got away from her.

          With a quiet urgency, The Seed Underground reminds us that while our underlying health, food security and sovereignty may be at stake as seeds disappear, so, too, are the stories, heritage and history that passes between people as seeds are passed from hand to hand.

          In his influential A Sand County Almanac, published at the beginning of the environmental movement in 1949, Aldo Leopold proposed a new ecological ethic to guide our stewardship of the planet. In this inspiring book, Sarah Hayden Reichard tells how we can bring Leopold’s far-reaching vision to our gardens to make them more sustainable, lively and healthy places. Today, gardening practices too often damage the environment: We deplete resources in our own soil while mining for soil amendments in faraway places, or use water and pesticides in ways that can pollute lakes and rivers. Drawing from cutting edge research on urban horticulture, Reichard explores the many benefits of sustainable gardening and gives straightforward, practical advice on topics such as pest control, water conservation, living with native animals, mulching and invasive species.

          The book includes a scorecard that allows readers to quickly evaluate the sustainability of their current practices, as well as an extensive list of garden plants that are invasive, what they do and where they should be avoided.

          People have always grown food in urban spaces—on windowsills and sidewalks, and in backyards and neighborhood parks—but today, urban farmers are leading an environmental and social movement that transforms our national food system. To explore this agricultural renaissance, brothers David and Michael Hanson and urban farmer Edwin Marty document 12 successful urban farm programs, including an alternative school for girls in Detroit, a backyard food swap in New Orleans and a restaurant supply garden on a rooftop in Brooklyn. Each beautifully illustrated essay offers practical advice for budding farmers, such as guidance on composting and keeping livestock in the city, decontaminating toxic soil, and even changing zoning laws.

          Nicholas Culpeper's The English Physitian: or an Astrologo-Physical Discourse of the Vulgar Herbs of This Nation is more commonly known as "Culpeper's Complete Herbal." It was first printed in September 1653 (Culpeper died in January 1654) and immediately became a classic reference that is as fascinating today as it was more than 350 years ago. Breverton's Complete Herbal is a reworking of that classic text for a modern-day audience. The book identifies each of Culpeper's herbs and spices, with a description of their appearance and Latin name/family, plus descriptions of the herbs' uses in medicine, dyeing and/or cuisine from the Greeks to the present day. Informative and entertaining, this book is packed with interesting facts associated with herbs. For example, most herbs have their uses attached to their old names: Lungwort cured lung illnesses, Fleabane was strewn to get rid of fleas, Wolfbane poisoned wolves, and Henbane killed chickens. Arranged alphabetically, Breverton's Complete Herbal describes 250 herbs and spices while containing feature sidebars and spreads on scented herb/medicinal gardens, the great herbalists, and New World herbs.
