Miss your garden? Plan in Winter for Planting this Spring

Courtyard Gardens


Whether you have a windowbox, balcony containers, victory garden or back forty, plantings can always use a little planning.  We have just updated our entire gardening and garden design books at The Community Library.  While the snow still falls outside, you can peruse lush photos of Mediterranean patios, explore permaculture options, read about edible front yards, and find non-genetically modified heirloom seed sources.  At our GoodReads site, you can read the reviews on some of the newest gardening additions to the health and lifestyle shelf, including Courtyard Gardens, The Organic Seed Grower, The Vegetable Gardener’s Guide to Permaculture, The Beginner’s Guide to Growing Heirloom Vegetables, and Garden Spaces; Simple Solutions for Planning and Design.

Edible front yard

Whether or not you want to turn your front yard into a No-Mow xeriscape, there are many options for learning locavores to grow the new victory garden in creative spaces, thereby saving water and your carbon footprint, even while saving consumer spending and improving your health and lifestyle.  Moreover, if the snow keeps falling, there is something very optimistic about paging through the warm gardening photos and looking forward to the growing season.  Spring will roll around soon!

  1. Don’t forget to check out the books for getting the kinks out of your back when you lift one too many bags of organic top soil for your raised beds. 🙂

    • Ah, for that go to 617.5 BRO in the health section for “Healing Back Pain Naturally”… and then find someone burly to do the heavy lifting!
