Reading is Good

Yes, reading is good. That's why I, in the last few years, became a reader. I just ordered the following books from Amazon.

The Essential Earthman by Henry Mitchell
Green Thoughts by Eleanor Perenyi
The Gardeners Year by Karel Capek
Farmers of Forty Centuries by F. H. King
The New Farmers Market by Vance Corum
The Dirty Life: on farming, food and love by Kristin Kimball
Wisdom of the Last Farmer by David Mas Masumoto
The One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka
Goat Song by Brad Kessler
One Mans Garden by Henry Mitchell
Deeply Rooted by Lisa M. Hamilton
From the Ground Up by Amy Stewart

These should keep me busy! The one that I am most excited about is The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball. I just love reading about other peoples experiences in the farming and gardening life.

There should be plenty of inspiration in the pages of all these.


Jan@Thanks for today. said...

Wow, that's quite a list! I need to spend more time with gardening books. I'm not into the farming/veggie gardening that you are but I do enjoy gardening in general and it looks like several of those would be ones I'd like. I'll add them to my list of future reads;-) Hope you are having a good winter. Less than 40 days until spring! Hooray;-)

Have you ever read The $64 Tomato? It's a horticultural memoir centered around the author's backyard garden, and is very entertaining!
