spring fever reading list

gardening, green living, lifestyle January 2, 2014

Here are the books I am paging through while I get organized for early spring plantings:

Gaia’s Garden
We have to conserve natural resources, and permaculture is a great inspiration in multi-purpose planting. This is a good introduction, is easy to read, and provides lots of information.

Natural by Design
I haven’t received my copy yet, but I am a big fan of Judith Phillips and look forward to landscaping our dusty outdoors with this book as a guide.

The Edible Front Yard
We live in a ‘grow food not lawns’ time! With the exception of planting our native grasses meadow, we plan on focusing on edible landscaping this season.

Square Foot Gardening
This book got me started in earnest vegetable gardening. We got a hand-me-down from my husband’s former boss and will no doubt continue to use it for guidance. My family still makes our own ‘mel’s mix’.
