Stuck inside thinking about getting out into the garden? Here at Meneely farms we’re in the same predicament. While we can’t get into the garden as much as we like right now, not all is lost. Winter is a great time to gain knowledge, prepare for the next season, and enjoy garden fantasies.
Reading gardening/permaculture/growing books is my personal favorite way of indulging in garden fantasy during the off season. Seeing sunshine and green on the printed page warms my soul on cold winter days. Every year I learn so much during the off season, and I get more excited for spring, which becomes an opportunity to apply what I’ve learned from the books from the experience I’ve gained firsthand. While we’ve been reviewing gardening books on this blog/website for quite some time, this winter we will do a biweekly series.
I have some titles in mind already, but I’d love input. What gardening books have you learned the most from? This could be any kind of gardening. Most of the things I have in mind are about edible gardening and permaculture, but I will read up on anything! Hardscaping, Japanese Gardens, Water Features, I’m willing to read and review on any garden or landscaping related topic! I also want to commit to doing at least a few video reviews, even though I really dislike being on video.
Gardening books give me something to look forward to in the winter. Sharing them with you all is also something I’m excited about.
