Spring is in the air and that means it’s time to till the ground and order seeds. I know that our northern readers are still sipping coffee by the fireplace and waiting for the snow to melt, but here in Texas we’ve already planted spring crops. Just yesterday I seeded my backyard garden and today we’ve been blessed with a long light rain.
This time of year I read lots of gardening books, flip through catalogs and spend way too much money at the garden store hoping it will all pay off come harvest time.
To celebrate the planting season we’re giving away six fabulous garden and backyard farming books!
1. The Quarter-Acre Farm: How I Kept the Patio, Lost the Lawn, and Fed My Family for a Year by Spring Warren. Value $17.95
2. Your Farm in the City: An Urban-Dweller’s Guide to Growing Food and Raising Animals by Lisa Taylor and The Gardeners of Seattle Tilth. Value $18.95
3. The Weekend Homesteader: A Twelve-Month Guide to Self-Sufficiency by Anna Hess (Read our interview with Anna here). Value $17.94
4. Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre by Brett L. Markham. Value $18.95
One lucky Mom Prepares reader is going to win all of these books!
