A Great Read

July 5th, 2012

I read a lot of books, there’s always a stack on my coffee table of books I’m reading, those to be read, and some that I’ll probably never get around to reading. Most of the books I read are about gardening and permaculture. Some a great, some are OK, and some never get finished. One of my most recent finds is quickly becoming one of my favorite gardening books. It’s an old book, I came across the title while reading The Art of French Vegetable Gardening. The method of companion planting and crop rotation they said she used sounded fascinating.

Companion Planting: Successful Gardening the Organic Way by Gertrud Franck is phenomenal. If you’re into companion planting, organic gardening, permaculture, herbs and gardening in general I think you will LOVE this book. I cannot even begin to explain her methods, they are detailed yet simple. This book will definitely be read over and over again!

Do you have any books you read over and over again? What are they?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
