JANUARY Organic Book of Compost, 2nd Revised Edition

Easy and Natural Techniques to Feed Your Garden Pauline Pears

Whether you have experience with compost or want to learn more, this book provides everything you need to know! From understanding what compost is and how to make it to using and storing it, this detailed guide explains this sustainable, low-cost way to produce rich soil in your backyard. Paperback • 192 pages • 228 x 178 mm IMM Lifestyle Books Home & Garden/Gardening & Landscaping ISBN: 978-1-5048-0123-2 • £14.99 Rights: World

A detailed guide to learn the sustainable, low-cost way to produce rich, fertile soil in your backyard

Perfect for both small-space gardeners in the city or large scale gardeners in rural areas DIY Sectional Compost Bin

1

Cut two boards, each 75 cm long and two boards, each 72 cm long. Cut four lengths of 5.5 cm from the 5 cm x 5 cm timber to make the corner blocks.

Materials and tools To make one section of the box you will need the following: • two 75 cm wooden boards, 7.5 cm wide, minimum 1.5 cm thick • two 72 cm wooden boards, 7.5 cm wide, minimum 1.5 cm thick • four 5 cm x 5 cm wooden corner blocks, 5.5 cm long • twenty 3.6 cm screws, size number 8 • screwdriver, drill, and saw Total materials for 10 sections: 30 metres of 7.5 cm x 1.5 cm timber; 2.2 metres of 5 x 5 cm timber; 220 screws.

The following instructions describe how to make a moveable, wooden compost box consisting of identical interlocking sections that are stacked one on top of the other. As you fill the bin, sections can be added to the box; as the contents decay the volume will decrease, so the top sections of the box can be taken off and used to build up a new container. Make a few extra sections and you will have a very flexible composting system. Keep the rain out with a wooden lid or polythene sheet.

2

Take one of the two shorter boards and place it in position on two of the corner blocks. The ends of the board should be flush with the blocks; the blocks should be offset so that they project 2 cm beyond the edge of the board, as shown in the diagram above.

3

Hold the board in position on the blocks. Drill three holes, 3 cm deep at one end of the board, through the board and into the block below. Fasten with three screws.

4

Size These instructions will make a compost box 75 x 75 x 75 cm. The dimensions can be adjusted to suit the materials available, making it ideal for using reclaimed timber such as floorboards or pallets. The example given uses boards that are 7.5 cm wide but they can be any width you like, as long as all the boards in one section are the same width. Adjust the length of the corner blocks to suit (approximately 2 cm shorter than the width of the board).

Repeat steps 4 and 5 at the other end of the board.

5

Now repeat steps 4–6 with the second shorter (72 cm) board. For the next stage you may need someone to hold the pieces while you fix them together.

6

Stand the two shorter boards (with blocks attached) on their ends, approximately 75 cm apart, with the protruding ends of the blocks away from you. Place a 75 cm board on top of these vertical boards to form the third side of the section. Ensure that the ends of the longer board are flush with the outer edges of the vertical boards.

7

Drill and screw each end of the 75 cm board, as in step 5. Use two screws only this time.

With charming, personal anecdotes from the author, helpful tips and variations, and historical fun facts interspersed throughout, this delightful guide is an engaging and insightful source of inspiration from start to finish! Paperback • 192 pages • 228 x 178 mm IMM Lifestyle Books Food & Drink/Cookery & Drinks ISBN: 978-1-5048-0122-5 • £14.99 Rights: World

An essential guide for gardeners who grow more produce and herbs than they know what to do with

A collection of over 90 easy-to-follow recipes for jams, jellies, marmalades, pickles, chutneys, ketchup, cordials, vinegars, oils, and even liqueurs and breads

A proper Devonshire Cream Tea You will need • Scones freshly baked (page 186) • Clotted cream in liberal quantities (or heavy cream) • Homemade jam strawberry for preference (page 26), with raspberry a close second (page 24) • A large pot of leaf tea freshly brewed

My culinary roots are pretty confused. Part of me hankers after goulash, sauerkraut, and yeasted cakes filled with poppy seeds and dark plum paste; but I can’t escape the fact that my tastebuds received their early education in the south-west of England, home of the cream tea. “Give ‘em a Gurt Big Dollop” was the 1970s slogan of Devon’s dairy marketing board, advertised in huge letters on the sides of double-decker buses, urging people to pile on the (clotted) cream. Clotted cream is made in the West Country and until relatively recently, most of it stayed there, although you could order it by post if you were in the know. Nowadays it is available in many supermarkets, though you can still have it mailed direct from the farm. For me, the best clotted cream must be thick, supremely unctuous, yet grainy, and with a decent crust on top. It has a very high fat content (minimum 55%). Don’t let that bother you, though. This is the stuff of treats, not for everyday. If you cannot get hold of clotted cream, use the thickest, unsweetened, heavy cream you can find (whipped cream is not dense enough). Or try beating together one part mascarpone to two parts thick, heavy cream with a tiny bit of confectioner’s sugar. And now to the cream tea: served in any number of cafés and teashops in the UK, all too often it falls short of expectations. The worst and most widely perpetrated crime is to skimp on the amount of jam and cream. The best ones come with mountains of the stuff—a school friend once took me to a teashop on Dartmoor, warning me with delight, “They challenge you to finish the cream.” If you can find such a place, that’s wonderful. But I believe the best cream teas are made at home. Get out your best china. Take the tea with milk. Spread the jam and cream on your scones as generously as you like. The Devonian way is to put the cream on the scone first and the jam on top. The Cornish do it the other way around. Either way, you won’t be needing dinner.

The true line of the template edge isn’t always easy to see. To make sure it’s right, trace along the edge on a piece of paper. The traced line will reveal ripples and nicks that need smoothing.

Make the apron from a long board. Extend it off the benchtop; then stick the template to it with carpet tape. That way you can cut the arch using a saber saw and router and not damage the bench.

An exciting beginner-friendly craft book featuring 19 mosaic projects for the garden

Understand the materials, tools, and techniques necessary to get started

Create stunning works of mosaic art using ceramic, vitreous glass, marble, mirrors, or granite tiles 2

1

Draw the design in reverse on a piece of brown paper cut to the size of the floor tile. You can trace the design from an enlarged copy of the template on page 124 or copy it freehand with charcoal or pencil. Remember that in the indirect method the image you draw will be the reverse of the finished mosaic. Also bear in mind as you draw the size of the mosaic tiles so that where possible the different elements of the pattern can be cut easily from halves and quarters. At this stage you should also select your colours. The bird and twigs are made from unglazed ceramics, while the sky is made from vitreous glass. Small pieces of vitreous glass are also used for the blue in the feathers and around the eye.

3

Start with the head of the bird. When making a creature of any kind it is always a good idea to start with the head as this will give it character and life from the start. Apply a small amount of washable PVA (diluted 50:50 with water) to the brown paper with a small paintbrush.

5

When the tiles are fixed to the paper and the glue is dry, fix the mosaic to the ceramic floor tile. First, mix the grout with water into a thick paste and spread it across the back of the mosaic, using your hands protected in rubber gloves, working the grout into the joints between the tiles. Sponge the back of the tiles clean with a damp tiler’s sponge. Always use a clean face of the sponge for every wipe so as not to spread the grout back on to the tiles. Set the mosaic to one side.

4

The body of the bird and some of the wings are made of long, narrow strips of unglazed ceramic. These are most easily cut with double-wheel tile cutters. Further shaping and the nibbling required to make the curved ends of the feathers is best done with tile nippers.

The twigs are also made with narrow strips cut with the double-wheel tile cutters. The strips are more effective if they taper slightly as this creates a line of uneven thickness that suggests the organic growth of the twig. The lines of laying for the sky follow the lines of the twigs, reinforcing the dynamic angled flight of the bird. It is made up of slightly skew-cut halves, which makes it possible to follow the slight wobbles of the twigs.

GARDEN MOSAICS

Mix the cement-based adhesive to a thick paste and spread onto the ceramic tile with a notched trowel to achieve a regular thin bed of adhesive across the surface. This can be tricky as the adhesive does not want to stick to the smooth surface of the tile. If the mosaic is not too large it is possible to place the substrate on top of the mosaic. First slip a small board under the mosaic, then carefully turn the tile over and place on top of the pre-grouted mosaic. Hold the board and tile tightly together and turn them over so that the tile is now lying on the work surface and the paper facing upwards.

You can now damp the paper and press the mosaic down onto the tile. A mixing trowel is used here as a tool with which to apply the necessary firm and even pressure. Keep wetting the back of the paper with a damp (but not wet) sponge until the water has penetrated and the paper turns a darker colour. While waiting for the water to sink in and the glue to dissolve, run some adhesive around the vulnerable edge of the mosaic to strengthen it.

Lift an edge of the paper and pull it back, parallel to the surface of the mosaic so as not to pull the tiles upwards and out of contact with the adhesive. When the paper has been removed, gently sponge the face of the tiles clean while the grout is still wet and the excess can be lifted easily. Re-align or recut any pieces now, if necessary. When the adhesive is dry cover the area with a thick paste of grout, and work it in with your fingers protected with rubber gloves and then sponge clean with a damp tiler’s sponge as before.

ITEMS NEEDED • Several 3”-16” smooth stones • Various colors of acrylic paints • Paintbrushes • Pencils • Paper towels • Garden hose

It’s always a nice when you can combine form and function in your garden space by creating a useful object that also adds a decorative touch to the area. DIY garden markers are one of the simplest and most enjoyable projects you can create. Your creations are limited only by your imagination, and the materials required are minimal and inexpensive. With this project, we hope to provide you with some inspiration and ideas for creating your own garden markers made from stones. The process is fun and relaxing, and especially good for a group of gardeners to do together—perhaps a fine indoor project for a rainy day that is keeping you out of the garden, or a winter pastime that you can do while planning next year’s garden (“I think we’ll plant some onions this year—let’s make an onion stone!”). There is, of course, no right or wrong way to design these rocks, but hopefully you can use our examples as guides and either try to copy them or use them as jumping off points for your own designs. The specific steps are here to help ensure that your garden marker rocks turn out properly. Once you’ve painted all of the fruits, vegetables, and herbs in your garden, take your stones outside and put them to work! Have fun.

GA R D E N D I Y

STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1: Gather rocks�

Obviously you can utilize any size stone you would like for this purpose, but we chose some fairly flat stones about 6”-10” long for our garden markers. You can obtain stones from many possible sources, but we gathered ours from the borders of our farm fields, where farmers in years’ past built large piles of stones while clearing the fields and plowing. When you choose your rocks, try to visualize how they will sit on the ground and envision which shapes will make good markers with enough room for painting. Also keep in mind that a detailed design won’t turn out as well on a rough rock as it will on a flat one.

Step 2: Wash and dry rocks� Odds are that stones straight from the outdoors will have bits of sand or dirt stuck to them, so a quick washing is a good idea. You’ll probably want to do this outdoors with a hose and not inside at a sink! Once washed, leave the stones to dry thoroughly before attempting to work with them. Flip them over halfway through the drying time to allow the undersides to dry properly as well.

• Rug size: 72 x 72cm

Cut the blanket fabric into strips about 1.5cm (¾in) wide, using the rotary cutter and cutting mat. Using the rug hook, pull a short strip of fabric through the canvas first to ensure that it is of the correct width to fill each hole in the canvas. If it is not wide enough, it will slip out of the holes; if it is too wide, the canvas will distort.

Check the underside of the canvas periodically to make sure that the loops are lying flat.

Using the rug hook, work the border first, starting in the middle of one side and working all the way around. Work along the rows, changing colour wherever this is indicated on the pattern. When a strip is finished, pull the end to the front of the rug and start working with a new strip. Insert it through the same hole as the end of the previous strip to ensure a firm fit.

MAKER’S TIP

This rug is hooked with heavy wool blanket material that has been dyed and felted. Since the rag strips are so heavy, rug canvas has been used instead of hessian. The loft of the blanket wool holds the rags in place.

T

he Stiefelgeiss, the Booted goat, is a robust and hardy breed and well suited to life in its harsh mountain habitat. It could until 1920 be found in the uplands of St Gallen in Glarus, Switzerland, but by the 1980s the breed was on the verge of extinction, and so ProSpecieRara took control. The Booted Goat Breeders Club of Switzerland has now taken over management of the breed and farmers all over Switzerland are being actively encouraged to breed the Stiefelgeiss for its milk, meat and fibre. Their appetite for leaves, buds and bark makes them an ideal tool to preserve the quality of pastureland. They also make ideal surrogate mothers. Their colour ranges from a light greyish brown to a dark reddish brown. They have beards and longer hair on their back legs which is usually a different colour, hence the “boots”.

Appenzell Characteristics Weight: male 143 lb (65 kg), female 99 lb (45 kg). Height: male 29–33 in (75–85 cm), female 27–31 in (70–80 cm). Usually without horns.

T

his is a beautiful pure white dairy goat: a native of Switzerland usually found in the cantons of Appenzell and St Gallen, and a rare and endangered breed dating back many hundreds of years. In the 1980s it was infected by a terrible disease, Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE), which forced it to the point of extinction. In 2000 only 677 were registered, and in 2011 this had increased to 1,479. This was due to the help and support of the FOA, the Swiss Goat Breeders Association and ProSpecieRara, the Swiss Preservation Foundation which supports the breeding and cultivation of traditional animals and crops. They are bred mainly for their milk, which contains 2.9% fat and 2.7% protein, a perfect base for cheese-making. In close cooperation with ProSpecieRara and the Coop supermarket of Switzerland, innovative cheese-maker Matthias Koch has created a new cheese made solely from Appenzell goats’ milk, which has been extremely successful. With a guaranteed market for the milk the farmers are enlarging their herds to keep up with increasing demand. The beautiful Appenzell is now out of danger.

Reed Boat Schon als Kind liebte ich es, mitSpielzeugbooten in der Badewannezu spielen. Diese Faszinationhabe ich off enbar vererbt,auch meine Jungs spielen gernemit Booten. Oft spielen sie natürlichmit dem Playmobil-Schiffoder mit dem motorisierten Polizeiboot.Am meisten Freude habeich aber, wenn sich die Kindermit einem selbst gebauten Bootim Spiel verlieren. Meiner Meinung nach ist die Hauptschwierigkeitbeim Basteln einesBootes der Rumpf. Erstens ist esoft schwierig, geeignetes Materialzu fi nden, und zweitens ist es vielArbeit, den Rumpf in die richtigeForm zu bringen, wenn man nur einTaschenmesser zur Verfügung hat.Einfacher ist es deshalb, einenRumpf aus Schilf zu fertigen. In derfolgenden Anleitung möchte ichzeigen, wie das geht.
