Selous's Bookshelf III

Reading is something that I enjoy, so I like to add to my Library of knowledge as often as economically possible.

One area of major interest is in securing a unending food supply via Permaculture, Edible Landscape, Food Forest and Aquaponics. Pursuing self sufficiency as a Survivalist or just a common sense Prepper will entail much labor to secure your food supply against those who would enjoy the fruits of your endevor without your consent. If you hide it in plain sight by using uncommon food plants, they may never know what is really in that patch of weeds or flower bed that surrounds your house.

Recently added to the library:

Paradise Lot: Two Plant Geeks, One-Tenth of an Acre, and the Making of an Edible Garden Oasis in the City
    Toensmeier, Eric

Aquaponic Gardening: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Vegetables and Fish Together
    Bernstein, Sylvia

Patriot Dawn: The Resistance Rises
    Velocity, Max
(good storyline, characters were wooden, no "color" to the story, buy it anyway and support the author for his contributions to the community. More of a tactical manual hidden within a story)

 Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long, 2nd Edition
    Coleman, Eliot

Secret Garden of Survival: How to grow a camouflaged food- forest.
    Austin, Rick
(Halfway thru it, will give a more in depth review when I have finished it)

Ulsterman, D.W.
(Halfway thru it)

Waiting for:

Wildwood Wisdom
Jaeger, Ellsworth

Permaculture Design: A Step-by-Step Guide

Recommended Video:


I was really impressed with this video and highly recommend watching it.

Update: 7/30/13
Finished Dominatus and received my other books. I plan on finishing Secret Garden and then starting Permaculture Design to get some basic grounding in this practice. I have been collecting the books but have not started reading all of them.
