Introduction
The first time I came across an example of raised bed gardening, my reaction was, that is an extremely sensible way of gardening, you do not have to stoop down to ground level. I was seeing these raised garden beds in a friend’s home. She loved gardening. She also had back trouble. So crouching down in front of her beloved flower and vegetable as well as herbal garden in order to de-weed them was purgatory to her.
And then her handy do-it-yourself practical husband said, “Why don’t we raise the crops and plants in beds which are waist high?” And he immediately set about building 4 feet wide beds, in square shaped blocks with wood. The soil was raised above ground level, and placed in that wooden frame. The results were amazing.
It was only 10 years later that I found out that raised bed gardening was being practiced extensively all over the world. Avid gardeners were making bed frames out of concrete, rock, and even wood. They made the containers to their own particular requirements, with dimensions ranging from 1.0 m to 2 m, depending on the space they had. 

Gardening in containers is all very well, but raised gardening eliminates the use of pots.
And best of all, as my friend told me, “I do the gardening on my raised bed. Himself –(her enthusiastic DIY gardener husband) plans to plant plants which love the shade under the raised beds. In that way, we are utilizing every inch of the soil, as well as lots of space above ground level. What a sensible way to make gardens in limited spaces.”
She has the right of it. And this is possibly the reason why so many people want to know all about raised bed gardening in rich organic compost laden soil.
So as you are one of them, let us start with how we can utilize every square inch of our land, economically and beneficially, by making raised beds, how to make them, how to take care of them and how to enjoy their harvest.
I definitely advocate natural methods for gardening, so I am going to tell you about the best organic and natural gardening practices, which people all over the world have been using for centuries. Take advantage of our technology in other aspects of gardening like watering, etc., but still use the old natural methods for fertilizing the soil.

Introduction
Millenniums ago, a man deciding to build a garden was fortunate because he had all that land right outside his door. All he had to do is clear out a piece of land, and mark it with a boundary wall. After that, he could go hunting for attractive looking plants in the wild, and bring them back home. With a little bit of care and cherishing, he would soon have a tame garden of his own.

But today, a large number of us are not so fortunate. Space is at a premium. Concrete jungles have taken the place of what was once nature’s backyard. And that is why man is looking for easy options to bring beautiful greenery inside his limited space. 
And so this book is for all those, who want to know more about indoor plants, how to grow them, how to take care of them, which are the best plant varieties which flourish indoors and tips and techniques with which you can enjoy not only a relaxing hobby, but also greenery around you.
Until just after the Second World War, indoor household plants were limited to ferns, palms, and potted plants, which flowered in season. Surely plants like aspidistras were also popular for interior decoration but soon more and more wide-ranging varieties and species of foliage parted plants began to be known to keen gardeners.

This change is due chiefly to the architects who designed postwar buildings on severe lines. Gone were the rambling houses with huge gardens. Strictly utilitarian designs were utilized by architects to design these houses and flats. 
Frankly speaking most of them were chicken coops. The introduction of houseplants in a large variety of colors and fonts provided a flash of color to those austere and severe designs. You could relieve the simplicity and the austerity of the home by growing houseplants indoors.
Thanks to the improved heating and lighting systems, many varieties which were once grown in hot houses, greenhouses and conservatories would now flourish indoors as houseplants. There are many plants which are easier to grow, and last for several years.

Introduction
The first time I saw a miniature garden growing in a bottle, my immediate response was “but how did the plants get into the bottle?” Naturally, this amused the gardener very much, and for those people who are not into the secret of how the plants got into the bottle, this feat can only be on par with how did a model ship get into the bottle!
A garden in a bottle has about the same sort of fascination and requires almost that same amount offered dexterity and ingenuity to construct as a ship in the bottle. It is also going to need a lot of patience, because after all, you are gardening in limited space. But once your water garden is established, it can be left for months without attention. In many cases, depending on your plans, it may also not need watering.
So for all those people who have been really fascinated with this conversation piece, when you see people surrounding a glass bottle with beautiful plants growing in it, here is the beginner’s guide to indoor gardening in a bottle.
More than 200 years ago, a London physician named that Nathaniel Ward discovered that mosses, as well as ferns, which never grew satisfactorily in a city full of industrial fumes flourished if they were grown in the protection of a glass sided case. Thanks to his experiments, bottle Gardens developed in Europe, and since then, they have been the rage all over the world for people who are strapped for place, are looking for a new hobby, and also want to achieve something wonderful.
You can use any large bottle. But the bottle has to be made of glass! Carboy glass bottles are normally made for brewing beer, so if you can get them cheap at a nursery nearby, please do so. 
A 5 gallon carboy bottle is going for around USD 48 on eBay USA, but as my gardening books always suggest, follow and advocate minimum of expense and minimum of fuss, you may want to spend some time asking around in your circle of friends and neighbors for large glass bottles, which is they can spare you. 
I have seen some of these bottles kept away in garages, because once upon a time, they were used and the owner does not have any use for them at the moment. He may not want them for another 20 years, either. Please do buy the bottles from your friends! 
Otherwise, a long-lasting friendship can get into jeopardy, when carelessly spoken words of half jesting “Well, he borrowed that bottle from me and what a mess he has made in it.” could cause subconscious rancor and ill will. That is of course if he is not interested in gardening! 
If he is a gardener, he is going to demand his bottle back – along with your bottle garden, - five years down the line!
You may want to tell him the purpose for this gardening experiment. It is possible he may also want to give you some suggestions about plants based on his experience.

Introduction
What do I mean by city gardening, you may ask? There was a time, when people had large open areas just outside their door steps in the town, or in the “country”, and all they had to do was fence it off and try to tame it.
But as more and more people started migrating to cities, the available space for gardening began to be lessened. That was because concrete jungles came up, where once we had green fields. Suburbs on the outskirts of cities still had lots of land where gardens could grow, but for all those living uptown downtown and Midtown in Flats or in closed blocks, limited spaces and detached and semi-detached houses, one had to make do with imaginative and constructive ideas, with which they could still be in touch with greenery around them.
Boxes and plant containers on windowsills have been a part of city gardening. 

You as a city gardener know that you have just limited resources in terms of space. That is why you have been to know how to adapt these limited resources to gain the satisfactory end you desire – that to have a garden in your house, or just outside your window sill, or in a room, or in your backyard.
People are afraid to experiment in looking at all the options open to them, when they want to make a city garden in limited space. So they keep to potted geraniums, some sad looking chrysanthemums and other seasonal flowering plants, and possibly a little creeper.

On the other hand, if you have been brought up in the country, and have spent a major portion of your life surrounded by plants, it is possible that you are instinctively going to have a knowledge of plants and their needs. And you are going to bring this knowledge along with you to the city.
This knowledge does not come innately – you need to be surrounded by gardeners. Also, trial and error on your part and advice from experienced experts who in their time have tried and erred and then imparted that knowledge to you for your benefit, is going to help you make a really nice city garden.
This book is for all those beginners who are dreaming of their own garden in which to relax and also for experienced gardeners, who want some extra tips and techniques with which they can improve their gardens.

Introduction
Millenniums ago, when human beings were still food gatherers instead of food growers, they decided to find out some ways and means in which they could preserve food for a longer time.
Winter was the time when they could not go out and hunt. So was the rainy season, especially they were living in rain forests and tropical areas. So if they found out some way in which they could preserve food, on which they and their tribe members could survive, this would make all the difference between life and death.
And so through a lot of experimentation, the ideas of pickles, chutneys, jams, jellies, preserves, conserves, spiced fruit and other ways of preserving food, as well as fruit and vegetables came into existence.

Today, millenniums later, there is absolutely no fruit and vegetable, which has not been turned into a pickle, chutney, jam, jelly or conserve, by some cook. Even meat in the form of venison and boar has been pickled in the east, down the ages, as well as eggs. Too many eggs, and you are worried about preserving them? Do as the ancient Chinese did. Preserve them in egg pickles.
So this book is going to tell you how to make the best use of all those extra vegetables and fruit in your garden, and turn them into a valuable food source, which can be eaten later.

Introduction
Just imagine a world without herbs. You would be flavoring your food with spices or even with natural minerals, because you did not know all about the value of the plant world to make a difference between a bland dish, and a delicious one.
Also, just imagine trying to get rid of a cold more than 5000 years ago, by rubbing your face with cold water. Until somebody decided that he was feeling really cold and he needed something hot to drink. So he just put some water on to boil, but because he did not like the taste of bland water, he just added some nice green leaves. Hey, this chance combination turned out to be really tasty. It also happened to cure his cold and made him feel really warm.

Believe it or not, most of the herbal lore, which has passed down to us down the ages has been found due to experimentation or by Lucky chances. Also, anything which my goats, sheep, horses and cattle liked may not have suited my innards and vice versa. That is why you do not give your cats and dogs , well spiced food, especially your pizza remains, unless you want them really sick.
At that time people did not know much about writing, because we are talking about prehistoric times. However, down the generations, they passed on this knowledge to the people of their tribe. And when they met up with other people of other tribes, they shared this knowledge.
This continued some sensible person decided that this knowledge had to be stored up for the use of future generations. And so this compile addition of herbal lore and information was born and the teachers, the wise men helped mankind for ages to come.
This included the knowledge of the essential oils in the plants.

Basil and mint essential oils are excellent for cooking and in beauty products.

Many of the herbs and remedies known to our ancestors have been lost with the passage of time. However, a lot of these remedies are still being rediscovered by chance, or through documents, found in excavations. Many of the plants which were so common during the time of the Pharaohs are now extinct. 
Nevertheless, their knowledge can be considered to be the basis of modern medical knowledge. They knew all about how to use onions to cure colds, as well as heart diseases. Thanks to the Eber papyri , modern researchers are researching on the benefit of onions to cure heart ailments.

Facts About Horses

Are you already fond of horses at an early age? If you do, you will definitely enjoy the facts that you will learn about the strongest animal we know. 

How Horses Are Born

Just before giving birth, a young pregnant horse gets into the right position. During its delivery, you will immediately see the first front foot coming out, followed by the second foot, then its nose. After the head is seen, the shoulders and the head are next, and this is known to be the most difficult part. After this challenging part, the hind legs and hips will come out easily until the baby horse, which is called colt (boy) and filly (girl) is completely out.

Popular Terms for Horses

Horse lovers often use terms which only them can understand. For someone, who is interested about horses, here are some common terms that you need to learn:

1. Aged - this is what you call a horse that is more than nine years old already

2. Backyard horse - this is a kind of horse that does not live in a barn. Instead, it lives with its owner or master.

3. Colt - this refers to a young horse that is less than four years old and has not been castrated yet.

4. Dam - this is what you call the mother of the horse

5. Filly- this refers to a young female horse that is below four years old

6. Foal- this is a baby pony or horse that is still under its mother's care

7. Mare - this is what you call a female horse that is already more than four years old

8. Stallion - this refers to a male horse that hasn't been castrated and already more than four years old

How Old Does a Horse or Pony Get?

Unlike people, horses only have short lifespans. Normally, a horse reaches 30 years, but it can still extend up to 40 years old. To determine its age, veterinarians examine and check the incisors (teeth) of the upper and lower jaws. 

It is very normal to talk about a horse' speed. The slowest speed is called walk and a bit faster than this is called trot. If you see a little faster than a trot, it is called canter and the fastest speed is called gallop.

Introduction 

Did you know that even in a small city lot, a large amount of pleasurable and profitable work in growing plants can be possible right where there is some soil available in which to plant things? It does not matter if you just have a pocket handkerchief sized backyard. 

If you want to know more about gardening for pleasure and gardening for profit, this book is going to give you some easy to implement tips and techniques so that you can start up this relaxing and amusing hobby right now. 

There is nothing quite so soul satisfying as getting your hands into rich and fertile earth and soil in order to grow something right now. 

You may make up a flower garden to beautify the outside of your house. A vegetable and fruit garden is going to furnish you with a continuous source of food of the best kind at a low cost. 

Both of these are going to give you plenty of opportunity for healthy outdoor exercise, while furnishing a source of pleasure to the one who cares for them and watches their development throughout the seasons. 

If you have a large yard, the vegetable and fruit gardens are going to yield you financial return, as well as keep your home table, kitchen and cellar supplied with fresh vegetables and fruit produce. 

Before beginning the actual work on planting, it is much more satisfactory to make a paper plan. This can be done in late winter before you intend any work done outdoors. 

Ask the neighboring nurseries for catalogs. You may also want to ask your neighbors about giving you some seedlings from their own gardens. This plan is going to consist of a map of your grounds drawn to a proper scale. This will show the location of the buildings, boundaries, trees, shrubbery, and other plants which have already been planted there. 

For example, this illustration can show you the plan of a herb garden. Along with an outer boundary limit, there is going to be an inner square, a center square, and the herbal bed areas. 

You can make your plan according to your own wish, but it is always sensible to ask the advice of an experienced gardener to look at your land and tell you about the right places where you can plant borders, hedges, beds, walks, and so on.
