Free sample

Microgreens, the young seedlings of herbs, vegetables, beans, seeds, and grains, contain four to six times the vitamins and phyto-nutrients found in mature leaves of the same plants. This comprehensive resource explains how to grow microgreens at home, both inexpensively and easily. It provides detailed instructions for selecting seeds and soil, along with guidance on proper temperature, light, and ventilation. Also covered are methods for both small- and large-scale growing of microgreens, how to extend harvests, and techniques for preventing contamination by bacteria and mold. 

Filled with how-to information and vibrant full-color photos by the author, the book explores every aspect of this unique form of gardening. Included is a helpful guide to 55 species of microgreens, which profiles each green according to its flavor, preferred cultivar, special handling needs, and more.

Good Girls on Bad Drugs portrays the shattered lives of girls next door who became crack, coke, opioid, and heroin addicts, and who in their hustle for drugs became streetwalkers and internet escorts. In jailhouse journals and interviews, they confess with candor and courage to their sex work and drug crimes amid two Connecticut mega-casinos and the three nearby small cities. Doomed by their addictions, most girls never recover, while others die young from AIDS, OD, or murder. Here a spotlight is shined upon 22 lives. One chapter, one life. And sometimes one death.

Living and dying on the fringes of society, four fatally overdosed, one of them a 17-year-old internet escort whose death exposed a prostitution ring. Three were murdered by johns. One was an accessory to two murders. Another, after her prison break, was hunted in two states. Another robbed six banks in three states in six consecutive days. All their photos and interviews are included in these dramatic true crime stories about some guys’ lust for sex and these girls’ thirst for drugs.
