Garden books for winter reading

Gardeners in the temperate climates have a hard time over the winter.  How can you garden when there is a foot of snow on the ground?  How can you dig a whole when the soil is frozen solid?  Garden addicts get their fix in the winter by living vicariously through books.
Gardeners leaf through page after page of lush landscapes, fantasizing what plants they will plant in the spring. They get new ideas and inspiration in the winter.
Three great books are reviewed in the following YouTube videos. Enjoy the reviews and let your imagination grow wild.

Building Soils Naturally by Phil Nauta

Any Size, Anywhere Edible Gardening by William Moss

Florida Gardener's Handbook by Tom MacCubbin and Georgia Tasker

Luckily I live in the subtropics of South Florida now, so I get to garden all year long.  The winter days are too short to garden after work though, it is dark.  I miss gardening after work.  It is a great way to decompress before heading into the house to prepare dinner, go through the mail and  do all the many household chores.  Sometimes it is easier to be at work than to be at home in the house.  Thank you for stopping by my blog and see you again soon and at the other social media sites.
