my dream library

My dream library would be a place that has all the books I like to read, and some that I would like to read again. Here at Finca los Perezosos it’s almost exactly like the image I have in my mind of the perfect library. It’s not big, but it’s quality. There’s all sorts of books on gardening and permaculture, some of which I have in pdf and others which are impossible to get. Some day I’ll settle down and have something like it, but for now I’ll just enjoy being around this one and knowing that it is possible.

The only thing missing here (apart from some non-agricultural literature) is Yeoman’s Keyline Concept, but I’ll manage to get that for myself somehow, sometime! 🙂

Teaming with Microbes – a great source of information on soil and composting
Rodale’s compost? Wow! 🙂
