I have been re-reading Elliot Coleman's Four-Season Harvest. It makes me want to move to Colorado where I can enjoy cool springs and cold winters. I wish someone would write a book about gardens surviving the hot 6-month summer we have in Central Texas. If you know of one, let me know in the comments!
In the back is a chart for planting dates for winter gardens. It inspired me to get 13 winter vegetable seed packets from Sustainable Seed when they had the $.99 sale a while back. So when we're well in the back-to-school groove but not ready for Thanksgiving, I will be back to planting. Garden 101, round 2!
I finally got Seed to Seed: Seed Saving and Growing Techniques for Vegetable Gardeners. When I made that seed order, I re-ordered a pack of Lemon Cucumber seeds. I mean, how hard can it be to save seeds when they are that big and easily collected? But I didn't. I was so excited to have one thriving plant that I just wolfed them down. But now I have the book and can learn it "officially" for all my plant types.
We're so pleased you are reading Farming Salt & Light! Choose how you live!
