Gardening and Farming Books


It is that time of yearthe snow is flying and it seems like the gardens and fields are all sleeping. It is winter. Actually the snow really is flying outside right now. We have about 18-inches of it on the ground and the skies are full of it. As I sit inside snug and cozy with my cup of coffee flipping through our collection of gardening books, I can't help but wonder if spring will ever arrive.

I happen to be a bit of a brown thumb myself but after reviewing all of the amazing books (over 50 titles) I'm feeling very inspired. And from what I gather, now is the ideal time to plan your garden and get yourself geared-up for a successful growing season! We've got a terrific collection of books, and in the month of February, we're offering a sale on all of the titles on the Gardening and Farming shelf.

Beginning today and running through February 28th, all of the Farming and Gardening Books are 30% 0ff. You can take advantage of this sale in the store or online! I've included cover photos of a few of my favorite titles here to pique your interest.

In our gardening section, you can pick up how-to books on everything from designing
your garden to gardening in small spaces, keeping chickens or bees, opening a flower farm for profit, filling your root cellar, or even building houses for your animals! Perhaps you're not into gardening and you just want a nicer lawn. Maybe you have a lot of bugs and pests, or you really just want to know how to compost. We've spent a lot of time hand-picking the best books on all of these and more topics because of their exceptional information or for their excellent writing . . . or both!

With the slow food movement in full swing, this collection is sure to entice even the least likely brown thumbs to get their hands dirty. And these books make great Valentines Day presents for those loved-ones who don't enjoy romantic movies, chocolates, or sweetheart candies.
It's like giving flowers, but they'll need some time to bloom.
