  1. Good for you for encouraging gardening. Everyone should know how and try it. There are so many benefits besides food that a garden can provide. I hope you have lots of sucsess. A lifetime lover of my gardens. Paula

    • Thank you very much Paula 🙂
      We’re actually moving to flat land (instead of a mountainside) this month so we’ll be able to increase home food production even more. I’m looking really forward to sharing how we build our new garden space with everyone.

  2. Hi, Lorna I get interested with your book…but I can’t afford to buy one. But thank you for sharing your beautiful and exciting experience about family food garden. Hope to do gardening very soon…God bless you.

  3. Are you hard copy books no longer available? I may be missing it, but I’ve spent some time on your book page and I just don’t see a button to select to purchase the hard copy. If I click on the book in the e-book section it takes me to a shopping cart — but that doesn’t work for the hard copy. A button that says “Purchase Book Here” would be helpful. A button that says “Purchase E-book Here” would be helpful, too. I’d really like to purchase your book. Would you please explain to me how to purchase it?

    • Hi Laura,

      At this time I do not have a hard copy option for the book, sorry. I’ve been sourcing out printed options and I’m hoping it will be available as a hard copy for Nov/Dec. We’re in the middle of moving our homestead so it had to be placed on the back burner.

  4. Hi! back in August you had mentioned to the previous comment you might get into the Hard Book Copy by Nov-Dec… i was just wondering if you might be selling the hard copies after all? Thank you!

    • Hello!

      Unfortunately some of the images in the book don’t have enough resolution to be print quality. I have to go through the whole process of reformatting the book and adding new photos but I need to take new stock photos as I’m currently out. Not sure if you know but we moved in the summer of 2016 so our garden was very short lived which was a lost opportunity for my photography. I’ll be taking all the new photos with our garden summer 2017. I’m sorry this is such a process! The downside of self publishing 🙁
      I have a second book that’s currently being written and my goal is to get both books in hardcopy by the holidays 2017. I’m sorry…

  5. Hello Isis,

    My wife and I both love your Pinterest page. The information you provide has been very good, and it has helped us make some crucial gardening decisions. However, we still need to learn more. But, then, I reckon we’re always learning. And, that’s a good thing.
    I’m going to show my wife your book when she gets home. I believe this will be a good guide for us to add to our knowledge base. Especially, in our area of the country, the Pacific Northwest.

  6. Also interested in a hard copy… e books are too difficult for this 70 yr old avid gardener. I’m looking to increase food production through extended season and expansion…I’m in northern Ontario zone 4
