This set is a match! Get two books that have a plethora of information and knowledge to share for a great price! The Mother Earth News Almanac is a seasonal guide with subject matter that any passionate DIYer, homesteader, or environmentally aware reader will appreciate. You'll find recipes, money-saving tips, and homesteading techniques, such as illustrated directions for tying a timber hitch, cat's-paw, sheepshank, and other knots; folk medicine treatments and preventatives; tips on raising chickens and keeping bees; plans for building three kinds of kites; complete instructions for fast and easy compost; and much, much more! Building Soils Naturally gives gardeners a hands-on plan for creating productive, living soil by using a practical, holistic approach – crafted right in your garden. In an organic garden, plants in optimum health thrive abundantly, produce harvests with amazing taste, and possess the ability to fight off plant predators. When they don't, there's often something lacking in their proper nutrition. Maybe they are missing beneficial microorganism companions, or perhaps they are short of the energy needed to reach their full nutrient-dense potential. The solution is to "start with the soil," but healthy soil doesn't happen just by composting, fertilizing, or companion planting alone. The solution can be found in Building Soils Naturally.
