UPDATE: The GLC Giveaway books for April are gone. Congrats to Adrienne, Cindy and Diana — enjoy your books! | Spring is here. It’s garden season and the GLC has a few useful books to send your way to help get you started. The first person to write in and request one of the books linked below gets it for free during our fourth Monthly GLC Giveaway of 2006. Limit one per person — and you must request a specific book. First come, first served. You also must include a snail mail address — but we won’t use your email or postal address for anything other than sending you the book.

Gone! Claimed by Cindy of Sioux Falls, South Dakota!
The Kitchen Garden (Month-By-Month) | “Just like the other books in the month-by-month series, this book by Andi Clevey puts you on the right track by providing a timetable for all the necessary chores in the kitchen garden. As timing is crucial for sowing and planting, this book is a very handy reference. The author is a well known expert in this field and the book is a clear and concise guide to beginners and pros alike.” — (List price: $27.75)

Gone! Claimed by Diana of St. Paul, Minnesota!
Kitchen Harvest: A Cook’s Guide to Growing Organic Fruits, Vegetables, and Herbs | “This is a bright, gorgeously designed book with vivid color photos and charming illustrations. A worthwhile addition to your collection if you already have some knowledge or experience with container gardening, however it lacks depth on certain matters and concepts… Still, I found the short blurbs on each type of plant helpful, right down to which exact hybrids grow best in pots and what kind of yield to expect. This is the first container gardening book I’ve come across to include potted trees, although I was a little disappointed to find no citrus plants were included.” — (List price: $22.95)

Gone! Claimed by Adrienne of Mulberry, Florida!
Rodale Organic Gardening Basics: Vegetables | “Nothing beats the taste of vegetables from a home garden — especially if they are organically grown, and it’s never been easier. [This book] includes chapters on preparing the soil, choosing the right varieties for different regions of the country, the latest tools, and new vegetable breeds with increased phytonutrient and vitamin content.” — (List price: $14.95)
