Try Orach theWay they are. Accord- late Sauce; Rosemary Vin- ly precedes spring by a few weeks. This year, the tables have turned and spring is way ahead of the game. Heaven only knows what the rest of the season will bring, but with late spring bloomers burst- hag forth already, can gar- dening be far behind? It's probably well past time to get your g/'een thumbs in gear, break out the roto-til- ler, the garden books, and leap into acfion...at least with the early, "cold weath- er" plants. It pays to plan ahead, so, before you begin dig- ging in the dirt, assess the situation. First of all, if you have deer, check out Rhonda Massingham Hart's Deerproofing Your Yard & Garden. She deals with Surefire Plants Deer Truly Hate; Homemade & Store-Bought Deterrents That Really Work; Innova- tive Fencing & Netting Op- tions; and Up-To-Date In- formation on Lyme Dis- ease. She also tells you why deer might find your yard more attractive than your neighbor's; what deer like and don't like for dinner; and some of the things that will steer them away - if not from your yard, at least from the plants you'd rather not share with them. If the object of this gardening endeavor is the next book on your list should be Rodale's The frugal Gardener - How to Have More Garden For Less Money by Catriona Tudor Erlor. You'll learn how to save cash by sav- ing your seed, propagat- ing new plants from cut- tings, and swapping seeds and plants with neighbors and friends, but that's just part of what will make that garden pay off. To get the best results from all your efforts, you need to know what to plant where; how to make your soil the best it can be for the plants you want to grow; how to con- trol those devastatingly vo- racious bugs; what tools you'll need to get more with less work; and how to cut the costs of mainte- nance. Parragon brings you Grow Your Own Food - The Perfect Compan- ion to Growing and Us- ing Your Own Fruits and Vegetables. In the sec- tion, Food Gardens, the authors go into planning and preparation; design- hag and starting a kitch- en garden; growing root vegetables, bulb crops, leaf vegetables, rotation crops (like legumes), sal- ad crops, container gar- dening, growing fruit and herbs, and the care and maintenance of all of that. The section on Seasonal you have to do in each sea- son, and that includes ear- ly-mid-and-late-winter. By the way, there are sowing and planting opportunities in late fall that you might consider taking advantage of too. The Vegetable Gar- dener's Bible, by Edward C. Smith introduces you to the author's W-O-R-D sys- tem for all North Ameri- can Gardening regions. It's short way of remem- bering Wide rows- Or- ganic methods- Raised beds - and Deep goil. The publishers, say the book is popular with gar- deners because of, "its friendly advice, vegeta- ble specific information, and unwavering commit- ment to organic methods." There are sections on com- post, "Bugs, Slugs, and Things that Go Chomp in the NighL" diseases and solutions, and a wonderful plant directory with plants that are familiar and unfa- miliar. Ever heard of sal- sify? It's also known as oyster plant because it tastes something like scal- loped oysters. You can learn all about it on page 290. Somebody last sum- mer brought Tomatillos to the produce auction. They popular in Latin cooking. Read about them on page 306. Like spinach but can't grow it in hot weather be- (sometimes called Moun- tain Spinach) which, says the author, tastes some- thing like the plant af- ter which it's named but comes in a variety of colors and tolerates hot weather. Find out about that one on page 270. Lewis Hill and Leon- ard Perry's The Fruit Gar- dener's Bible - A Complete Guide to Growing Fruits and Nuts in the Home Garden will help you choose the right varieties for whichever part of the country you plan to raise them in. Youql also learn, among other things, how to prune fruit trees, vines and shrubs to get the best harvest; and how to create edible landscapes. Should you want to try growing some of the native fruits that you don't, as a general rule, find at area farmer's markets, check out pages 196 and 197, where youql discover, or re-discover, mulberries, pawpaws, and the American persimmon. Considering the price of pecans and walnuts, and other nuts these days, you might want to try growing your own. They aren't the comparatively instant-grat- ification kind of crop that vegetables are, but ff you like nuts, it's one that will either make or save you a lot of money in the long run, if prices keep going ing to the map in the back of the book, Kentucky is in growing-zone-5 which is apparently for plants that can survive to 10-be- low-zero. It's been known to get colder than that around here, and there's no telling what it willdo from one winter to the next, but we know we're good for black walnuts, hickories, hazelnuts, and butternuts and, according to the table on page 201, at least some varieties of almonds, Chinese chest- nuts, filberts, nut pines, and pecans. Another money sav- er is the herb garden, which allows you to use fresh herbs, or to dry your own supply for win- ter. Aside from person- al use, many people use herbs as crops. You can test the waters either way with Charles W.G. Smith's The Beginner's Guide to Edible Herbs- 26 Herbs Everyone Should Grow & Enjoy. Among those 26 favorites are basil, garlic, mint, oregano, lavender, rosemary, sage, tarragon, thyme, parsley, lemon balm, cilantro/coriander, bee-balm, and marjoram. Youql also find how to use them in the kitchen in things like Roasted Bell Pepper and Cilantro But- ter; Thyme and Cheese Biscuits; Minted Choco- egar; and Old-Fashioned Herbed Candies. More can be learned in Tammi Hartung's Homegrown Herbs - A Complete Guide to Growing, Using, and Enjoying More than 100 Herbs. As you can see, there are any number of garden types you can grow as well as a variety of ways those types can be enjoyed. The New Gardener by Antho- ny Atha, Jane Courtier, Margaret Crowther, Sue Hook, and David Squire, deals with many of the is- sues covered in the oth- er books here, but also addresses sheds, paths, and electricity in the gar- den, and things like build- ing a scented seat, erect- ing a trellis, and crealLrtg hard surfaces; while edi- tor Melinda Rathjen's At Home in the Garden is composed of a series ot essays, poems, recipes, and beautiful photographs about gardens and life en- joyed in them Your garden is what your effort and skill make it. What you put into the former is up to you; the lat- ter can be developed with some wen-chosen books from your local library, and with some sound ad- vice from the Herb Lady, who, it is hoped, will be paying Bath County a visit again this year.
