family and a farm and is free to borrow with Kindle Unlimited. Here's a
short selection to tantalize your taste buds:
Something of Value
I watch his eyes as we unload my truck
of junk I’m getting rid of, to see
each piece’s value to him. Copper
to melt and render out of an old
telephone, steel at five dollars a hundred
pounds, a fan he’ll fix up and use, a mattress
for his drunken brother-in-law, Jake.
In the same pale blue eyes I’ve seen my own
value rise and fall, fluctuate from
potential drinking buddy before
he got saved and quit, through farming partner,
fellow herb gatherer when times were hard.
In his scarce world, nothing is ever
wasted, and no one completely useless.

thrilled to announce that my newest paperback is now live
The Ultimate Guide to
Soil is a hefty book, full of all of the tidbits I've learned over the
last decade about improving and maintaining soil in a no-till garden.
There are sections on soil testing, no-till management, and
remineralization, plus an encyclopedic overview of organic soil
amendments including everything from manure and straw to bokashi bins,
black soldier fly compost, and humanure.
geared the book toward both beginners and advanced gardeners alike,
including highlights of my own garden's growing pains so you won't have
to repeat those mistakes. I also included my successes of course, along
with tips for turning problematic dirt into prime garden soil. Then I
rounded it all out with the experiences of other gardeners and a hefty
helping of library research.
I've been amazed and
gratified by the public reaction to Half
Wolf, the first book in my Alpha Underground series. Over 6,000
sales and borrows in the first three months --- wow!
