Get Ready for Spring!



I have a giveaway to tell you about that you are going to love!  Timber Press has put together a generous Edibles Prize Package that includes:

  • 5 books 
  • 35 packages of heirloom vegetable seeds
  • 1 bareroot fruit tree

The Books...
Fruit Trees for Small Spaces includes garden plans and suggestions for having a single dwarf peach in a container or an entire mini orchard on a small lot.  Who couldn't get excited about that?

The Beginner's Guide to Heirloom Vegetables lists 100 easy to grow heirlooms, including cultivation information about each plant.  Also included are the interesting stories behind some of the heirlooms.

Sugar Snaps and Strawberries is about growing edible plants in small spaces.  There is lots of gardening how-to, plant profiles, an intro to guerilla gardening, and more, all brought to life with beautiful photos.

The Edible Front Yard makes you want to take all your grass out and plant fruits and vegetables.  You get design tips and suggestions for making it all beautiful as well as useful/edible.

The Kitchen Garden Handbook is divided by season, making suggestions for vegetables, herbs and edible flowers you can grow during each one.  I'm inspired to think of a progression of edibles all year long.   Timber Press has sent a copy of this my way so I can tell you more about it later.

The Seeds and Fruit Tree...
 are from Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply.  They are an online source for all sorts of ornamental edibles, including dozens of types of fruit and nut trees.
