Outdoors Free Kindle Books 7-25-13

PLEASE. Do everyone a favor and write an Amazon review if you end up reading a book (or trying to and giving up in disgust). It does not have to be much. Just tell what you think of the book. By the way, many times I have found the 1 and 2 star reviews on self published works to be far more revealing about the book than the more stellar reviews.

Most times these books are only free for a day or two, so you have to grab them while you can. Worry about whether you really want to read it later if it seems interesting. And be careful, they can change from free to not free at any time. I have also decided to list books for no more than 3 days in a row to avoid cluttering up the posts, unless there is some reason I think the book deserves extra attention.

From the top 100 free list

Container Gardening: The Beginner's Guide to Planting a Vegetable & Herb Garden without a Backyard (Quick and Easy Series)
How can someone with only a limited amount of space, time, and resources possibly begin to grow their own food?
Container Gardens!

What exactly is a container garden?
These can be described in many ways, but are essentially gardens that are grown in containers and vessels that are big enough and deep enough to provide a suitable replacement for the natural soil and garden environment.

Is it hard to start container gardening?
Absolutely not!  Without any experience, gardening knowledge, or the proverbial green thumb, you can start growing all kinds of delicious foods. Whether you have a tidy little back yard, or you are an urban dweller with only a few large and sunny windows, you can start growing vegetables, herbs, and a few fruits that can supply you with at least a bit of your own food supply.

Why start container gardening?
Not only will these foods taste better that you grow on your own, but they are going to be more nutritious due to their freshness and lack of commercial pesticides, fertilizers, and irradiation treatments. They will also save you a lot more money than you might think, and will probably green up your diet a great deal more too.

What types of containers can I use to start gardening?
Generally, you can use almost any type of container as long as there is:

Enough room for the plant;
Enough space to add drainage;
The ability to drain evenly; and
Is not made of a material that poses a threat because it might "leech" chemicals into the soil and then into the plant.
