I read Fresh Food from Small Space by RJ Ruppenthal while nursing a head cold.  I wish I’d been sitting at the computer because there are little website gems tucked throughout the book. Dennis, here’s a sustainable way (http://www.cowpots.com/) for you to do your starts without killing the peat bog!  I’ve always wanted to do sprouts – well, there’s a section on How-To and web references to get you started (http://www.sproutpeople.com/).  He covers fruit trees, bees, chickens, crop rotation, vertical growth, self-watering planter boxes, yogurt, mushrooms, etc.  I don’t want to give it back to the library!
