Yesterday afternoon I posted this:
Beneath the video, commenter Greg C wrote:
“I just bought the book, mainly to support your efforts.”
Then, a little while later he posted again:
“It is an excellent book. I am in the process of buying a place in Florida but there are few 2+ acre options in 9b,10a, but plenty in 9a (in my price range). I have been weighing the cost of the greenhouse in the north vs the higher property cost in the south. So far everything I have read is spot on info I need. Thanks! :D”
Then, over at Gab, Rich Williams writes:
“Just bought it, and have already read from the Forward to the first chapter. It has been worth the price just finding a kindred spirit in the war on meringue-ruined pie. Look forward to reading the rest, and will write a review when finished.”
Meringue is definitely overrated.
The book is funny, smart and will change the way you look at tropical plants and the potential in your backyard.
As someone who’s got Breadfruit fruiting in January in Fort Lauderdale, I love the idea of pushing your zone and planting for the climate to come.
Wherever you live, this book has great information and is well written in an entertaining way. You’ll learn what you need to know, and you’ll also applaud the common sense of David’s wife.
We need more of these kinds of books. Up until very recent history, humans have always directly participated in growing their own food. Preserving or relearning how to do grow food is vitally important to mitigating climate change, creating resilient communities, healthy citizens and having fun along the way. Now, I’m off to make some elderflower champagne. Get this book because you’ll refer back to it again and again as a reference.
Beautiful – thank you. Would you be able to post that on Amazon?
Just putting this information out there, for other Linux operating system users. I don’t have a Kindle device, and wanted to download the App, to read David’s new book on my computer. Only, the App for PC, only applied to Windows or Mac. I registered an account with Amazon Kindle Cloud however, and can now read the book from my chosen browsers (in this case, Firefox) online.
I’m going to enjoy reading the book I’m sure, because I’ve always been pushing the zone, wherever we’ve lived. It’s always good to read of others experience, in this green alchemy too.
Very good – thank you for the report. My kindle broke late last year and I did the same thing on my cheap smartphone – now that’s my ereader.
