It’s going to hit about 95 degrees here today, which is way too hot, way too early as far as I’m concerned. What it means is that I’ll do what needs to be done while it’s coolish, and then . . . I’ll be inside.
So, what’s a gardener to do when they have to stay inside?
Read gardening books.
With that in mind, I’ve got a list of free and cheap ebooks that are currently available. I can’t make any claims for their content because I haven’t read them (yet), but, again, they are free or cheap, so . . . Surely you can find something to add to your gardening library.
