Etienne, thanks for telling us about the translation of this book by
Jean-Martin Fortier. I'd love to review it on my blog
www.sustainablemarketfarming.com. I'm interested to read about the
micro-farming method used on the 1.5 acres of La Grelinette.
As you say, there is room for various approaches to small-scale vegetable
production. I hope you will enjoy reading my book this winter. (I've
included metric units as well as US, so it's more accessible to more
people.) My book started with articles I wrote for Growing for Market
magazine (www.growingformarket.com) and grew from there.Updating and
filling out the topics took quite a lot of time! My book includes various
methods suitable for small farms, including those bigger than micro-farms,
which use some tractor equipment.
Another interesting book coming out in Spring 2014 is Grow a Complete Diet
by Cindy Connor.
book is "for folks who want to grow all, or a substantial amount, of
their food and do it in a way that has a small ecological footprint."
Lots of good winter reading
