[Self Reliance in Troubled Times] More gardening titles

In addition to the Square Foot Gardening title we are re-reading, we picked up a copy of Ruth Stout’s “No-Work Garden Book” from the local library book sale for $1. A fascinating title that claims that you can garden with little effort, we have come to believe and agree, although her ideas on composting in place have not taken hold here, as we enjoy our composting bins and the dark earth that results, and use the end product where it’s needed. Much like Gus Portokalos from My big Fat Greek Wedding’s use of windex on everthing and anything, Ruth’s answer to every gardening ill was mulch, to great success. A wonderful review of this great lady and her ideas can be found at Homestead.Org
