Green Resources: Compost, Vertical Gardening, Sheet Pan Suppers, Food in Jars

Hello friends (=

It’s nice to see some new followers. I noticed you all are kind of green-geeks like myself. Welcome!

I work at a home improvement store and they have a book station with some really home-y books. I skimmed through some of them as deeply as I could before my shift – the 4 books I will be sharing with you are my favorite; they are projects that I can accomplish since I live in a small space and are highly encouraging because I don’t even own a fraction of an acre of land – at least in the United States.

My advice: Don’t strictly follow any book – be the half blood prince(ss) you are and use your imagination. Trial and error. Make a mistake. Trust yourself.

I have provided online shopping links for the books below! Who wouldn’t want to learn the art of composting? Do you live in a small home and are you craving to garden – well you might want to consider vertical gardening because you can save tons of space. Sheet pan suppers are a great idea for quick, fun, tasty dinners. I saw they had a whole section on appetizers. You could even come up with your own recipes! And wait wait wait, you cant forget about food in jars – that’s not only adorable – but delicious, precious, and artistic!

Here we go!!


“The authors describe a natural six-way basic compost gardening system to achieve a compost-rich garden that requires less digging, hauling, weeding, mulching and even less plants” (Acres USA, Web).

“Vertical gardening guarantees a better outcome from the day the trowel hits the soil–by shrinking the amount of “floor” space needed and focusing on climbing plants that are less prone to insects, diseases, and animal pests” (Walmart, Web).

“The virtue of cooking on a sheet pan is two-fold. First there’s the convenience of cooking everything together and having just one pan to clean up. Then there’s the cooking method―roasting, baking, or broiling―three techniques that intensify flavors; in other words, food tastes better when cooked on a sheet pan (move over, slow cooker)” (Amazon, Web).

“Popular food blogger Marisa McClellan takes you through all manner of food in jars, storing away the tastes of all seasons for later. Basics like jams and jellies are accompanied by pickles, chutneys, conserves, whole fruit, tomato sauces, salsas, marmalades, nut butters, seasonings, and more” (Amazon, Web).
