Cook Your Own Veg - Carol Klein
SKU: gyov/968/499
Binding: Hardcover: 224 pages

No book has ever made it so easy for the gardener-cook to get the most from fresh veg, herbs, and leaves. Britain's favorite gardener, Carol Klein, considers every stage in the process - from harvesting through storing to cooking. In the first chapter, on gardening, she demonstrates how and when to harvest each plant to get the best flavor while encouraging growth for next year (for instance, use a small fork when unearthing your roots and you'll protect the worms who will give you great soil for next year; leave onions on the soil to dry out before transporting them into the house for storage).This is followed by four seasonal chapters, each covering approx 10 veg, leaves, and herbs. For each food, she details all the parts of the plant you can eat, how to cook the food when its young, how to cook older specimens, and how to store it (usually on the plant or in the soil), enabling you to enjoy all sorts of ingredients you could never find in a shop. Plus there are over 80 fresh and easy recipes, enabling you to make the most of your seasonal produce.

Beekeeping - free ebook
SKU: bk/ebook/000
Six page ebook looking at honey, hives, extraction, etc.

Honey has a long and distinguished history in the human diet. For thousands of years honey hunters have plundered the hives of wild bees for their precious honey and beeswax - a practice still common today.

The most widely used honeybees are the European Apis mellifera, which have now been introduced worldwide. Tropical Africa has a native Apis mellifera, which is slightly smaller than the European Apis mellifera, and is more likely to fly off the comb and to sting. They are also more likely to abandon their hives if disturbed, and in some areas the colonies migrate seasonally.

In Asia there are three main native tropical species, Apis cerana, Apis dorsata, and Apis florea; cerana is the only species that can be managed in hives, but the single combs of the other two are collected by honey hunters.

Beekeeping factsheet - free ebook
SKU: lili/bk/000
The art and craft of keeping the honey bee Apis mellifera. Honey bees are highly social insects, living in extremely well-organised groups; each member has a specific job to do, and no bee can survive without the colony. Beekeepers provide hives for colonies of bees to live in. A hive will have one queen who lays eggs in the brood chambers. The drones’ sole purpose in life is to fertilise the queen, and the rest are workers, who make the cells of the combs, clean them, fill them with pollen and honey, feed and tend to the young bee larvae, guard the hive and forage for nectar and pollen. The skill of the beekeeper is to maintain the colony at maximum strength while they are producing honey, and to prevent them from becoming overcrowded and swarming. Bees only need to be tended in spring and summer; from late autumn and throughout the winter they remain in a state of semi-hibernation. The beekeeper takes the surplus honey and in a good season a single hive can produce up to 80kg - plenty for a large family, with a surplus for local sale or barter. Bees are an excellent enterprise in an urban area, if you have a small garden, or even a rooftop space to site a hive. The bees will thrive on the abundant flowers in gardens and their flight path will be well above human heads.
