Free Gardening Guide--In a New Format

Just a quick update on my new Little Farm gardening e-booklet: Little Farm in the Garden: A Practical Mini-Guide to Raising Selected Fruits and Vegetables Homestead-Style...It's now available in PDF on my website. Just visit for your free copy!

Blueberry Picking Tip:

Blueberry season has just started here in the Foothills. Picking blueberries the other day, I was keeping in mind that even the blue ones can be sour. So I'd like to share a tip for finding the sweeter berries:

When it's early in the season, you're probably trying to select the ripe berries when there are still so many white ones on the shrubs. Here's what you do: just look for the clusters of berries where all but one or two berries are blue. Select the largest berries in the cluster, and you'll be sure to end up with more sweet ones!

If you like reading on your Kindle, iPad or other device, the Little Farm gardening guide also available on Amazon, Apple, Kobo, and all other online retailers. I hope you're enjoying your summertime garden! PS...I'm adding a quick note today, September 10...with fall just arounnd the corner, you'll find plenty of useful suggestions for your cool season gardening and preparation for next year's crops in Little Farm in the Garden!
