  • Storeys Illustrated Guide To Poultry Breeds

    $24.95

    Farmers and fanciers keep an astonishing variety of poultry breeds in North America. These birds provide meat and eggs to nourish us and feathers to keep us warm. Their quirky personalities and charming good looks make them barnyard favorites. They inspire passionate devotion from show breeders and provide a living for farmers.

    Presented here, breed by breed, are more than 120 barnyard fowl – from chickens and turkeys to emus and pheasants. For each animal, readers will find stunning color photography, a brief history, and a detailed description. The identifying characteristics included for each breed are: class (standard and bantam); size (for cocks and hens); appearance of comb, wattles, and earlobes; color (everything from black-breasted red to silver laced); place of origin; conservation status; and special qualities (including longevity, size and quantity of eggs, quality of meat, and other relevant uses). Author Carol Ekarius provides enough information to satisfy both the dedicated browser and the serious farmer weighing the pros and cons of multiple breeds.

    In 2005, Storey’s Illustrated Guide to 96 Horse Breeds of North America celebrated horses in a coffee-table reference that captivated enthusiasts of all ages. Now farmers, breeders, backyard chicken keepers, and unabashed poultry fanatics will have a definitive guide of their own. If it’s poultry – fair or fowl – it’s in this book.

  • Root Cellaring : Natural Cold Storage Of Fruit And Vegetables

    $16.95

    Anyone can learn to store fruits and vegetables safely and naturally with a cool, dark space (even a closet!) and the step-by-step advice in this book.

    Root cellaring, as many people remember but only a few people still practice, is a way of using the earth’s naturally cool, stable temperature to store perishable fruits and vegetables. Root cellaring, as Mike and Nancy Bubel explain here, is a no-cost, simple, low-technology, energy-saving way to keep the harvest fresh all year long.

    In Root Cellaring, the Bubels tell how to successfully use this natural storage approach. It’s the first book devoted entirely to the subject, and it covers the subject with a thoroughness that makes it the only book you’ll ever need on root cellaring.

    Root Cellaring will tell you:

    * How to choose vegetable and fruit varieties that will store best

    * Specific individual storage requirements for nearly 100 home garden crops

    * How to use root cellars in the country, in the city, and in any environment

    * How to build root cellars, indoors and out, big and small, plain and fancy

    * Case histories — reports on the root cellaring techniques and experiences of many households all over North America

    Root cellaring need not be strictly a country concept. Though it’s often thought of as an adjunct to a large garden, a root cellar can in fact considerably stretch the resources of a small garden, making it easy to grow late succession crops for storage instead of many rows for canning and freezing. Best of all, root cellars can easily fit anywhere. Not everyone can live in the country, but everyone can benefit from natural cold storage.
