5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Outstanding! 24. Oktober 2010
Von Amy Crawford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Incredibly this book does it! It goes into understanding what is going on and why you are doing things...

it's NOT a cookbook recipe but instead covers what it's all about and what makes it work (or not). Most garden books tell you to plant so deep, so far apart, and when. Deppe explores the "why" you plant at a particular depth (how you could alter it depending on your particular set of environmental constraints). Here you learn the intelligent approach to working within your food growing set-up.

Deppe expands the "how and why" depending on the particular planting style you utilized. Do you use a rototiller, a sm tractor, or hand tools?

The creme-de-la creme, is that she discusses growing methods, using the products, and appropriate storage techniques without it being boring and dry.

I'm so tired of the usual: take potatoes and store them. Hmm, how, and what makes a difference on getting a potato to store one month vrs 6 months.

How do I get them out of the ground without damaging them, what does light actually do to them, what can I do with potatoes that start to sprout, etc. are all questions that are covered in her topic discussion. What are the nutrient values, why would I grow this vrs another crop in terms of protein and calorie count. What about water needs: when, why, and how, instead of " water as needed".

Deppe, in essence (AND in a very readable format), brings her depth of knowledge and experience to the table, sharing it so that I have the informational tools to make intelligent decisions. I am able to fine-tune my food production, as needed, to my particular setting. That builds in the resilience that makes my process adaptable to changing conditions... some people would label it as "increased food security"!

This is one book that will fill a huge hole in my gardening library, productively speaking (pun intended)!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Guerilla Gardening at Its Best 3. November 2010
Von Story Circle Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf
I have been looking for a book like this one for several years, so the publication of The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain Times gives me cause for rejoicing. Carol Deppe (whose earlier book, Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties, should be on every gardener's must-read list) brings us practical, common-sense garden wisdom and comprehensive, detailed advice for producing our own food staples. She's funny, too, and her wry humor goes a long way toward lightening her serious subject.

Carol Deppe is a long-time gardener and plant breeder (in Corvallis, Oregon) who specializes in developing open-pollinated, public-domain food plants for organic gardens. The Resilient Gardener encourages us to redesign our gardens for hard times. Its first focus, Deppe says, is on achieving greater control over our food supply, rather than relying on fossil-fueled industrial agriculture to supply our staple foods. Its second focus: on surviving the natural and personal disasters (droughts, family emergencies) that can wreak havoc in the garden. Its third: on gardening not just in the good times, or even in the hard times, but "gardening in mega-hard times." And not just gardening for ourselves, either, but for others: "A gardener who knows how to garden in both good times and bad can be a reservoir of knowledge and a source of resilience for the entire community." The bottom line, for Deppe, is the awareness that a time may come when our gardening pastime turns into a basic survival skill. Natural disasters, widespread resource depletions (fossil fuel, water, soil), or a catastrophic economic downturn may require us to grow our food, she says, so it's a very good idea to learn how to do this before we have no other alternative. To which I say "amen."

The first four chapters expand Deppe's definition of resilience and self-sufficiency in the context of climate change, possible food shortages, and personal dietary needs. The next three focus on gardening essentials: labor and tools, water, and soil fertility. There's lots of important basic information here, and I found myself frequently underlining and taking notes. Her chapter on the laying flock (although it feels a bit interruptive to me, coming as it does between potatoes and squash) fits neatly into her DIY food philosophy. Home-grown protein-rich eggs are an important addition to our diets, and even urban gardeners are finding ways to raise backyard poultry these days. I learned from her discussion of ducks and, while I'm a chicken person, I have to admit that it made me nostalgic for the ducks I've raised in the past. I had to smile, too, at the love and humor evident in the song she sings when she tucks her ducks in for the night: "It's Great to be a Ducky in the Rain."

But the really good stuff in this book happens in Deppe's chapters on potatoes, squash, beans, and corn--staple foods that do not receive enough attention in our arugula-centered gardens. Because Deppe is a plant breeder, she knows these plants from seed to harvest and beyond, and offers an extraordinary amount of valuable planting, culture, harvest, and storage information. Although some readers may not feel they need all the technical advice on plant breeding, Deppe's guidance on the selection of varieties, on garden layout and planning, and on pollination is basic, helpful, and encouraging. As well, she is an enthusiastic cook and relies on each of these four staple crops in her own diet, so she includes some excellent recipes and cookery information, as well. There's more to corn than roasting ears, and more to squash than zucchini!

It has been very good to see the recent swing away from ornamental to vegetable gardening. Some garden writers are beginning to pay serious attention to the practical business of raising our own groceries and are encouraging us to become less dependent on the supermarket as our sole food supplier. But Carol Deppe's book stands out among the current crop of vegetable gardening guides in the same way that a 10-foot stalk of Aztec Red Mexican corn stands out in my garden. If you're looking for help in growing staple crops at home, put The Resilient Gardener at the top of your list.

5.0 von 5 Sternen INCREDIBLE! 29. Oktober 2010
Von Market Gardener - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Bar None, the best gardening book I've ever read. And I've been into this for 30+ years.

The information is readable, oft times humorous, exacting and easy to remember.

I pre-ordered it. I waited impatiently for it to arrive. Then I had a "Lost Weekend" reading it straight through. I'm on my 3rd re-read. And (I'm not sure why my first post of this incredible readable didn't show up?)

I was wowed by Chapter 4, "Diet and Food Resilience". Especially what she says about wheat sensitivities. Definitely worth paying attention to. The specific chapters on which types of corn, beans, squash and potatoes are worth seeking out.

The only snag, so far, is her website is not up and running. Or I'm not able to access it from here.

I strongly recommend you get this book. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Resilient Gardener 12. Januar 2011
Von George E. McLaughlin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I wish I could eloquently sum up this book. Actually, the title does that about as well as anyone could. But I'll give you a couple reasons why I'm so excited about it. There are more good points to make. But I can't take the time to get them all into this review.

1) This book pretty well nails what has been my wife's and my passion in almost everything we do related to self-sufficiency. That is, it addresses something larger and broader than just growing things. It addresses *production for consumption, survival and happiness.*
2) Carol writes uniquely. One does not learn what she has to teach without learning about her own journey. I find this very helpful, as the context helps explain the content. I also find Carol, in her books, to be a delightful person.
3) This book addresses other areas of production, which, in my mind are closely related to gardening, though often not considered so. For example she writes on poultry and other forms of meat production. To me, this is just a logical step from gardening and very important.
4) Carol is a "duck-aholic" and so am I. Okay, so she isn't into Muscovies, like I am. But her Anconas sound like excellent birds. I cannot understand why so few Americans like duck and even fewer like their eggs. Yet, ducks are probably the most practical of all poultry, with the potential of being raised where chickens can not.
5) Carol writes about growing and raising things because they make one feel good. I grow certain crops which I call "feel good crops." That's because, they are dependable and productive and, for one reason or another, when I grow them and am around them, I am happy. Carol expresses this very well.
6) Carol has celiac disease. Because of her wheat intolerance everything she produces is slanted toward a wheat free diet. My wife and I love wheat. But we greatly appreciate Carol's perspective. She has focused on corn, which for the home grower much easier to process. Being a plant breeder, Carol has actually developed some varieties of corn, special for the homesteader type. Also, we know a number of families with celiacs in them. We couldn't resist, we had to send them copies. We can't send out more now. But this book is very high on our list as a "must have," for several reasons.

In this book Carol is partly retracing steps of some of our ancestors, in the quest for food security. In part also, she is breaking new ground. I've been gardening for over 40 years and seed saving since the 80s. I have learned quite a bit from this book. Yet, it is written both simply and in a detailed manner. I had a copy sent to a friend who is brand new in gardening and know that she will greatly benefit from it.

If one goes to Carol Deppe's web site it is possible to download a copy of the table of contents and the first chapter, for free. This, in itself, would probably sell the book to most who would examine it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book....but 20. März 2011
Von Woodswoman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Given the economic forecast and world events, the self-reliant part of me readily ordered this book. As one who has homesteaded for 40 years, I won't say any blinding light bulbs went off, but there is a lot of good information here. This book could be especially valuable to a beginner homesteader. I like how she writes, i.e. her personality and idiosyncrasies come across nicely, something I like in a book. I like a chuckle with my meat. The reason I gave this 4 stars (instead of 5) is because the book description does not indicate that many parts of the book are related to her own climate and her own health issues. Examples include: the overwintering of plants in the northwest, variety of seeds, ducks are a better choice than chickens because they forage better over the winter (I read that while sitting in northern New England looking out at my three feet of snow still on the ground), how she adapts her garden to manage her celiac disease, weight management, and restless leg syndrome... etc. You will also find that some of her set-in-stone practices are in direct opposition to other writers, such as plant spacing, raised bed containment, mulch use, etc. In other words, don't get swept up into thinking this is the bible or last word regarding your own gardening/farming practices. As the years pass, we all grow into what works for us best through our own practice. Having said that, this old-timer learned a number of things from this book, is going to try some of her ideas on my farmstead this year, and very much enjoyed reading Carol's book. Gotta go... another overly-wintered squash to bring out to the chicken coop... great idea, Carol!
