Decades before the terms "eco-friendly" and "sustainable growing" entered the vernacular, How to Grow More Vegetables demonstrated that small-scale, high-yield, all-organic gardening methods could yield bountiful crops over multiple growing cycles using minimal resources in a suburban environment.

Today, How to Grow More Vegetables, now in its fully revised and updated 8th edition, is the go-to reference for food growers at every level: from home gardeners dedicated to nurturing their backyard edibles in maximum harmony with nature's cycles, to small-scale commercial producers interested in optimizing soil fertility and increasing plant productivity. Whether you hope to harvest your first tomatoes next summer or are planning to grow enough to feed your whole family in years to come, How to Grow More Vegetables is your indispensable sustainable garden guide.

How to Interpret Your DNA Test Results for Family History and Ancestry: Scientists Speak Out on Genealogy Joining Geneticsby Anne Hart
How do you interpret your own DNA test results? How do you write, tape, and transcribe an oral history? Assuming you're a beginner in genealogy with no science background and interested in family history, where do you begin your search? What's the cultural component behind a trait as biological as your genes? If you're a family historian, an oral history researcher, or a person fascinated with ancestry, here's how to understand the results of DNA tests. Different people have different, sometimes opposite opinions on whether DNA testing is a useful tool in the hands of family historians. If you are a carrier of a genetic disorder, DNA testing is useful in researching your family history to find out who was the first carrier in your ancestry back in time. Here the debate unfolds as scientists, authors, physicians, media people, owners of DNA testing companies, genealogists, historians and researchers comment, write, and opine on DNA testing and genealogy. How do you use DNA testing to interpret family history records? How eager are people to take a DNA test for family history research? Most DNA tests require only that someone swish mouthwash around in his or her mouth and send it for testing to a laboratory. So what can a DNA test really tell you about your own ancestry-distant or not so distant? And most of all, how do you interpret and use the results?
