How to Grow Winter Vegetables 
By Charles Dowding
"All about how to come through winter with plenty of vegetables stored and delicious fresh harvests to make, and covering the hungry gap period with advice for growing small plants to survive winter, for eating during April, May and early June, when there can be plenty of growth but little to harvest from spring sowings... The book’s last section covers a wonderful range of tasty salads to grow in winter, especially with a little protection, such as from fleece and cloches."

God Has a Wonderful Plan for Your Life
By Ray Comfort
"For decades, the world's most popular gospel message has been drawing the lost by promising God's wonderful plan for their life. But behind the facade of the "wonderful plan" message is the reality of the trials, temptations, and persecution that Jesus promised. How can we reconcile the two? 
In this life-changing book, best-selling author Ray Comfort explores whether this common gospel approach aligns with real life - and with Scripture. The vital biblical principles he reveals will force you to reexamine your ideas about the gospel - and will teach you how to reach unbelievers the way God intended. A must-read for all who care about the lost."
~ God Has A Wonderful Plan for Your Life: They Myth of the Modern Message, by Ray Comfort

  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
    By Barbara Kingsolver
    "The family's year long experience leads them through a season of planting, pulling weeds, expanding their kitchen skills, harvesting their own animals, joining the effort to save heritage crops from extinction, and learning the time-honored rural art of unlading excess zucchini. Barbara Kingsolver's engaging narrative is enriched by husband Steven Hopp's in-depth reports on the science and industry of food, and daughter Camille's youthful perspective on cooking and food culture. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life makes a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life, and diversified farms at the center of the American diet."

    1. Enjoying reading your blog! You're a good writer and I like your material. I especially like your writing about aprons - it takes me back to my grandmother's house in North Carolina. I still have one of her aprons, but will now go to see Momo's offerings. Thanks! Have bookmarked your page.
