Spring is in the air! This time of year really gets me motivated to try new things…or at least read about trying new things. Are any of you planning on taking on new spring projects? Container Gardening? Preserving? Maybe home brewing?
I’ve always found homesteading practices to be interesting and this year I want to learn how to make preserves and start an herb garden for my kitchen. It’s such a great time of year to get outside, get inspired, and get growing! Even if you don’t adopt a homesteading lifestyle, or find it daunting, you can always pick and choose from the many great (and green) ideas these books have to offer:
Apartment Gardening, by Amy Penington: Plants, Projects, and Recipes for Growing Food in your Urban Home (eBook)
Fresh Food from Small Spaces, by R.J. Rupenthal: The square inch gardener’s guide to year-round growing, fermenting, and sprouting.
Teach yourself Bee Keeping, by Adrian Waring
Good things come to those who wait:
