In November, I posted about garden planning. Here are a few additional posts and tools I’ve run across that might help that winter project:
December Frugal Action Item: Plan Next Year’s Garden – Grow more food at home
Get Growing in December – A local gardener’s advice for beginning gardeners
And since we’re being frugal by growing our own, why not splurge on a few gardening goodies?
Garden Scribe is a garden notebook for the plant addict. Set up like a DayRunner, it has space for photos and data on every plant in your garden.
The Gardening Notebook is a printable e-book with all of the charts that veggie gardeners learn to keep over the years. What did I plant in that flat? When is danger of frost past? Accessorize it with your own 3-ring scrapbook or binder.
New Book: Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces – From one of my favorite garden bloggers, a beautiful new book out in Feb 2010. Includes info on growing, storing, and preserving.
Finally, two well-loved schools of thought on home vegetable production:
Square-Foot Gardening – raised-bed system of no-till, intensive growing
How to Grow More Vegetables *(and fruit, nuts, berries, grains and other crops) than you ever thought possible on less land than you can imagine – biointensive gardening approach focused on building soil fertility
