I like how this book was made in a loose-leaf fashion.
Aren't these little girls adorable?
These two pages tell you how to make a terrarium. You can click on them to enlarge them for easier reading:
The next two books are not vintage, of course, but I wanted to show them to you anyway. This Mary Engelbreit Outdoor Companion book is my favorite books to sit down and look at:
The book below is the only one that really does me any good out of all those shown above; living here in La Pine. We have a very short growing season, and it can freeze any night of the year here (yep, even in the middle of summer). Gardening can be done, but you really have to learn about how to do it. That is where Linda Stephenson comes in. Linda and her husband Sonny own L & S Gardens. Linda wrote the book below in 1996, and she also holds classes to help us newbies. Thanks, Linda!
This year is the first year that I am going to make a vegetable garden here in La Pine. I wanted to do it last year, but we barely got a summer and I ran out of enthusiasm.
