New and Expanded Growing Vegetables In a Raised Bed and Straw Bale Garden combination - The R S Combo Previous Version buyers please note - this is a significantly expanded edition of the previous book of similar title. Over 20% new material and over 40 pictures and illustrations are included within. Growing vegetables organically by sustainable means is taken to a new level, with this concept of an RS Combo (Raised Bed Straw Bale Combination). By combining these two popular gardening techniques, you can have the best of both worlds and grow a virtually limitless array of vegetables and other plants. The inherent weakness of growing veggies in straw bales, is the fact that they will only last 1 season, or 2 at most. Growing perennials such as rhubarb, strawberries, Asparagus or berry bushes is also a no-no because of this short-lived aspect. With Raised Beds, they can be expensive to build and fill with compost regularly as the material reduces through natural depletion. However combine the two, forming an RS Combo and you have a 'gardening revolution.' As you will learn from this book, incorporating the idea of the RS Combo means that each concept compliments the other very well. The RS Combo(TM) combines the strengths, and effectively neutralises the weakness of the individual ideas, to produce an all-round vegetable gardening solution to suit every need. Click on the 'Buy Now' to see how you can benefit from this 'New' vegetable gardening revolution.

Building with straw bales is being embraced by amateurs and professionals for its versatility, comfort, environmental friendliness and high insulation. New methods should expand its growing worldwide popularity. In Practical Straw Bale Building, Murray Hollis uses simple, easy to understand language to describe the established techniques of straw bale construction and ways in which they can be improved. He also presents a new straw bale construction system that has substantial benefits over current methods. This system incorporates a new tensioning system that replaces the use of fence strainers for tensioning the hold-down/compression wires and eliminates uneven tensioning on opposite sides of the wall. It also allows for fabricating wall modules on-site as horizontal modules that are then swung into the vertical wall position after fabrication. Aspects of structures other than walls are addressed only to the extent that they are relevant to the use of straw bales, e.g. issues such as types of floors, roof structures and methods of heating or cooling. The innovative methods in this book will help to progress straw bale building technology and move it into the mainstream of the building industry.

Focusing on containers, trellises, and raised beds, this book shows how everyone can garden, including those with physical limitations like arthritis or location limitations like apartment-dwellers without backyards. Knowing where our food comes from is a huge issue; food safety and costs seem to figure more prominently in our lives all the time. Many people would like to grow their own vegetables but don’t know how to begin—digging, plowing, planting, weeding, and watering a large plot can be daunting. Stand Up and Garden shows how everyone can garden, including those with physical limitations like arthritis or location limitations like apartment-dwellers without backyards. Imagine harvesting radishes, carrots, and strawberries in the spring; herbs, tomatoes, and cucumbers all through the summer; beets, spinach, and even potatoes in autumn. By focusing on containers, trellises, and raised beds, Master Gardener Mary Moss-Sprague has improved upon traditional gardening by developing ways to grow plants that produce large amounts of food—enough for canning and other preservation—in small vertical spaces. New gardeners will find basic planting and growing information for a wide range of vegetables and herbs. Experienced growers will find economical, space- and energy-saving ideas. In addition to vertical gardening techniques, there are tips on overwintering plants and details on sustainable and eco-friendly gardening practices. Step-by-step illustrations and supply lists of inexpensive materials make projects like building a trellis or constructing a raised bed using straw bales accessible to everyone, regardless of ability or skill. There’s even a chapter on installing a micro-drip irrigation system—a very helpful innovation that eliminates the need for heavy hand-held watering devices. Use this great reference for inspiration and instruction on sustainable and economical gardening practices and techniques.
