  • Duck Eggs Daily by Lisa Steele

    Award-winning garden blogger Lisa Steele writes about the next big thing for urban farmers and foodies alike: ducks and duck eggs. This entertaining, authoritative guide to raising backyard ducks is a companion to Steele’s popular chicken care book, “Fresh Eggs Daily.” In “Duck Eggs Daily” Lisa provides an information-packed, beautifully photographed how-to for raising – and living with – happy, healthy ducks. She examines every aspect of her ducks’ lives: as hatchlings and chicks, in the duck house, in the run, in the pool, feed and treats, health care, duck behavior, and blending ducks into a chicken flock. And as foodies and chefs are embracing the appeal of duck eggs, Lisa also includes a selection of favorite recipes with duck eggs.
  • The Cancer Survivor's Garden Companion by Jenny Peterson

    Jenny Peterson is a breast cancer survivor. Her long road through cancer treatment was hard, emotional and often deeply depressing. The one thing that pulled her out of the darkness was her desire to be able to garden again. Peterson credits her garden with clearing her mental fog and overcoming her depression, physical limitations and pain. The Cancer Survivor’s Garden Companion explores the therapeutic benefits of this vital “earth connection.” With gentle empathy, beautiful photographs and easy how-to steps, she shows others how to create their own backyard haven for healing – a personal restorative garden – with a bonus of well-grounded guidance about diet, exercise, mental focus and spiritual renewal.
