    Nah, I get Christmas books like Billboard's Hot 100 of the 70's and 80's, and encyclopedias about baseball and football players & teams. I love statistics and when I was a kid I read almancs for fun. Now that's a nerd!

    I asked for books on


    organic apple orchardkeeping

    an complete encyclopedia of vegetables herbs and fruit

    and another one on birds and bugs



    and if you enjoy insect books, i really would recommend that you get "for love of insects"
    by Thomas Eisner. It is the best- reviewed insect book of pretty much all time and focuses on chemical defense . I love it!

    Keep me updated Finch on the organic apple growing. I have been organically growing veggies for a few years now but am totally ignorant to growing fruit organically. Also a title for the book would be nice .

    I'm still looking for an 11th edition Encyclopedia Brittanica set... I thought I got lucky today and someone was dropping off some "old" EB's. It was the 13th edition! The hunt continues.

    Yes it is! I did not remember the title, glad to hear you like it. Its only one of 4 things i asked for (under pressure at that) so assuming i will get it. If not there are always bookstore cards!

    Sure, if i remember! Im interested most in heirloom apple varieties, but those may not be the best types to grow organically either. Either way I would like to have an orchard sometime in the future. Long-term kind of thing. And geese!

    What veggies do you grow? I can't wait to have a vegetable garden. I always love eating fresh tomato BLT's.
