Fresh Food from Small Spaces: The Square-Inch Gardener's Guide to Year-Round Growing, Fermenting, and Sprouting - by R.J. Ruppenthal
One of the best things you can do for your health, pocketbook, and the planet is to grow some of your own food. This may seem impossible if you're an apartment-dweller or you've got a postage-stamp yard, but R.J. Ruppenthal's "mini-course in urban food production" demonstrates how even a rooftop, windowsill, or counter can be enough space to provide home-grown food. In addition to fruits, vegetables, and herbs, you can also provide your own grains, mushrooms, fermented foods (like yogurt), and -- as yard space and local laws allow -- honey and eggs. If you're looking to cultivate a more sustainable lifestyle, you should check out this inspiring and practical book.
