And those tomatoes and zucchini and basil and cucumbers have nourished countless families, neighbors, and friends with delicious, fresh produce. The Vegetable Gardener's Bible is essential reading for locavores in every corner of North America!

Do we have to rely on megafarms that use gasoline-powered machinery to grow and harvest crops? With every difficult question, more people think, ÒMaybe I should grow a few vegetables of my own.Ó This book will continue to answer all their vegetable gardening questions.
Praise for the First Edition:
"In every small town, there is a vegetable garden that people go out of the way to walk past. Smith is the guy who grew that garden." Ñ Verlyn Klinkenborg, The New York Times Book Review
"An abundance of photographs . . . visually bolster the techniques described, while frequent subheads, sidebars, and information-packed photo captions make the layout user-friendly . . . [Smith's] book is thorough and infused with practical wisdom and a dry Vermont humor that should endear him to readers." Ñ Publisher's Weekly
"Smith . . . clearly explains everything novice and experienced gardeners need to know to grow vegetables and herbs. . . . " Ñ Library Journal
"this book will answer all your questions as well as put you on the path to an abundant harvest. As a bonus, anecdotes and stories make this informative book fun to read." - New York Newsday

Salatin, hailed by the New York Times as "Virginia's most multifaceted agrarian since Thomas Jefferson [and] the high priest of the pasture" and profiled in the Academy Award nominated documentary Food, Inc. and the bestselling book The Omnivore's Dilemma, understands what food should be: Wholesome, seasonal, raised naturally, procured locally, prepared lovingly, and eaten with a profound reverence for the circle of life. And his message doesn't stop there. From child-rearing, to creating quality family time, to respecting the environment, Salatin writes with a wicked sense of humor and true storyteller's knack for the revealing anecdote.
Salatin's crucial message and distinctive voice--practical, provocative, scientific, and down-home philosophical in equal measure--make FOLKS, THIS AIN'T NORMAL a must-read book.
It burns its supply of hydrogen, using the power of fusion, to radiate light and heat out into space. The earth soaks up only a small portion of this solar energy. An even smaller part of that solar energy falls on your house. The amount of solar radiation that lands on you house is minuscule in relation to the total amount of solar energy the sun generates. However, that power is still ample enough to power numerous solar power devices in the home.
The sheer number of solar powered devices for the home is staggering. From solar attic fans to space and pool heating the number of ways to utilize solar energy, appear almost endless.
Where do you start? This book should provide some of the basic information the homeowner needs to decipher some of the solar powered devices designed for the household. These devices range from items as simple as solar powered lights to complex systems designed to power an entire house.
The purpose of this book is to provide the average homeowner with the basic information about the various solar devices available. This is not a technical guide. Rather use it as a “discovery resource” to explore the various solar products on the market for the home. It should help you determine how you might best use solar energy to bring the power of the sun into your house.
