Books That Can Help Get You Through Autumn and into Winter

 Here at HMCPL, we have so many informative books on anything you would want to know about preparing for our fickle autumn weather down south.  These are some things you could begin working on even before the first leaf falls.

Canning and Preserving Books

If you haven’t already purchased your canning jars, you should put an order in soon.  They are more difficult to find this year with gardening becoming more popular this past spring.  Come check out our collection on canning and preserving.  Below are some you can place a hold on now.

Books on Flora and Fauna Winter Prep Work

If you were one of the many people this spring who invested in a chicken or rabbit coup, backyard bee hives or you spend more time out in the garden and you don’t know what to do next with your plants, we have some books for you.

Books about Seeds for Next Year

Soon your luscious garden will gradually produce less and less and you will know what plants you want to grow again next year.  Harvesting the seeds from your own garden to keep for yourself or to trade with other amateur horticulturists is a great way to know what will work next year.  We can recommend some books for you below.

Composting Books

As your garden and summer flora dies back, now is a great time to add some nutrients back into the soil.  Composting is a cheaper and organic way to keep our garden soil rich with nutrients.  Whether you are a long time composter or are just looking into it, we have books on it!
