We’re having a slow spring here in Northern California — rain still falling from the sky and all the vegetable crops late to get started, but Spring is at its height and it’s green all around. In the garden, we are starting to see raspberries and strawberries, the lettuce has been out for weeks, the fava beans are nearly done (or we are nearly done with them!), brassicas and cucumbers and beans and tomatoes are all rooting in. The cold weather isn’t so great for these warm weather crops, but we never complain about rain in Northern California–we always need it and it’s always welcome. Wherever you are, we’re hoping you’re either planting or planning your garden, and the other homescale ecological projects you’re going to put into action this year.
Our book sales are going great and we are already going into a second printing. There is now a kindle version available on Amazon (though we don’t much recommend it as it in is black and white) and our Amazon ranking,which changes daily, has been as high as #16 in books on Gardening & Horticulture. If you can’t find the book locally, ask your indie bookseller to stock it — this helps spread the word about the book into your community. You can also purchase a copy for yourself or anyone else you love from this website. If you already have a copy and are enjoying what you’ve read, please consider offering a short review of the book on Amazon.
