I have four gardening books that I refer to constantly. Two are by Steve Solomon (Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades and Gardening When It Counts). Steve started the Territorial Seed Company but later on became disenchanted with politics in the US and up and moved to Tasmania where he writes books on how to garden down under. He also moderates the Soil and Health Yahoo discussion group and owns an internet library of important but out of print books on the subjects of health, gardening, homesteading and personal sovereignty. As an avid follower of the Soil and Health discussion group I feel like I’m in contact with Mr. Solomon on a daily basis along with an interesting group of gardeners and health nuts and, as might be expected, just some who are nuts.
A young Tasmanian farmer has started a new gardening website and has been able to get Steve to sit down and talk. Here are the videos he’s made so far. They are short.
The last two give glimpses of Steve’s home garden:
Insurance against hard times
Compost is not enough
You are what you eat
A curtain of beans
The best eating tomato in the world
Carrot Density Planting
