Free ebook on growing vegetables – Useful guide to producing loads of green stuff





Everything you need to know to produce superb vegetables yourself:

In this free PDF file which I would convert to a proper ebook format at once with Calibre, you will be treated to a very broad  range of highly practical advice on how to grow vegetables properly.

Not many pages….. But tons of information:

It covers in its 36 pages an amazing amount of detail about the specifics of growing all manner of vegetables, each individual vegetable having its own page, so you may print that page out and have it beside you as you work away in your garden with your trowel in hand if you prefer to work that way, rather than risking getting your trusty ereader all covered in mud and worms.  You can do all your planning comfortably in the house with your ereader and then take the paper version out  into the mud and slush of the garden………..

It is produced by a rather good website (USA Gardener) that deals with all aspects of gardening, in itself well worth a visit for any serious gardener I would say, as you will find advice on just about any branch of gardening there.

The vegetables it covers are as follows:

Asparagus
Bean, lima (bush)
Bean, snap (bush)
Beets
Broccoli
Carrot
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Chard
Corn ‐ 18 (ears)
Cucumber, slicing
Cucumber, pickling
Garlic
Eggplant
Kohlrabi
Lettuce, head
Lettuce, leaf
Muskmelon
Mustard greens
Okra
Onion, bulb
Pea
Pepper, bell
Potato, sweet
Potato, white
Spinach
Squash, summer
Squash, winter
Tomato
Turnip

Phewwww…….

Surely enough to satisfy any serious gardener I would think!

Apart from all this specific advice on each of the named veggies, it also has a wealth of advice on more general aspects of planning and looking after your vegetable garden, and absolutely unmissable ebook I  would say, and all of this is free……

I have read it carefully, and as a non-gardener (as my wife knows all too well) I have to say I found it fascinating reading, and now know all manner of things about Spinach that I never knew before……  If this is a good thing for me, I am not sure, but I am convinced that for any real gardener, this is a small jewel of an ebook.

Here is the link to the ebook: http://usagardener.com/free-gardening-ebook.php

If you download this ebook and read it, I would love to hear your impressions of it, equally if you know of any other gardening ebooks that you think other readers would appreciate reading, do share them with us here.

Kindle Pictures Feature. .2 Free Tools that Convert Images to Kindle format.

Kindle 3 and Kindle 2 with same screen-sleeper
UTILITIES FOR PUTTING PHOTOS (not Screensavers) ON A KINDLE, USING THE RIGHT FORMAT
  (Windows utilities, though the first one can be done via a website.)

As Kindle owners learn quickly, Kindle screensavers (really, screensleepers) are not officially replaceable by our own images (unless one uses a 'hack' and that can be problematical in a few ways although some find it worth doing...and re-doing with each Kindle software upgrade).

  I don't recommend it, and only the computer savvy should tackle it; even then, there are disclaimers by the utility makers that your warranty can be voided if a problem occurs during installation.  It's not super-difficult but no one is going to be responsible for anything going wrong on it, so I don't get into the details.  You can always google kindle screensaver hack to see what's involved.  I personally don't think it's worth it.

 And now the latest Kindle (with Special Offers and ads) shows Amazon had a specific reason for not offering "screensavers" that could be customized by the Kindle user.

It'd be nice if Amazon were to offer customizable screensleepers for their higher-cost Kindles without ads, at some point. (The sad dream that never dies.)

Your Photos on your Kindle in the Pictures Folder - a Kindle Feature
In the meantime, Kindle owners CAN put favorite photos or illustrations on the Kindle in a special Pictures folder, and I've found that many don't know this is possible.

  The instructions for this are in the Kindle User's Guide (which is placed by Amazon on each Kindle during first wireless sessions and is also available for your computer in PDF format -- see Kindle User Guides at the Amazon help pages).

  Remember that Kindle books or files can be Searched for words like "pictures" and sometimes that makes it easier to find a feature.

  A Kindle customer posted step-by-step instructions at the Amazon Kindle forums.  In reply to an earlier post on Feb 9, Anthony Hansen wrote (slightly modified) :

' If you would like to add photos to your Kindle 2, it's pretty easy to do.  Here are a few short steps to getting some pictures onto your Kindle.

1. Connect your Kindle to your computer with the Kindle USB cable.
2. Go to the file folders for your Kindle on the computer and add a new folder called `pictures' (without the quotes).
3. Within the new `pictures' folder that you just created, create other folders which will be used to store your pictures.  The names of these sub-folders should describe what type of pictures will go into the folders.  These sub-folder names are what you will see on the Kindle's `Home' page and are the photo albums that you will put pictures into.
4. Add pictures into the newly created sub-folders (albums).
5. Safely remove your Kindle from the computer.
6. Go to the `Home' page on your Kindle and press Alt & Z keys together (alt-z) to see the photo albums.
7. Go down to the photo album that you want to view using the 5-way button [or the Kindle-1's mercury-like rolling column-cursor] and then select the album to view the pictures.

That's it.  This should take no longer than five minutes to do depending on the number of pictures your adding '

KINDLE IMAGE CONVERTER

This is a nicely easy-to-use tool that converts almost any image you have (size does not matter much) to a Kindle-compatible black & white version in the right size and orientation for the Kindle display.  It works for 6" Kindles and the 9.7" Kindle DX's.

It does convert 'up' to larger sizes rather well, to my surprise, but sharpness and clarity will be more likely when you send a larger photo to convert 'down' (and something to remember if doing this for the larger-screen DX).

  It's also very fast, even using the method as seen in the image of the webpage above, uploading a photo to the website for conversion -- probably the way to do it for Macs.

  But the link below the uploaded filename field is for a download of the executable (a Windows file), which means you can have the tool on your Windows computer and do it without uploading the file to the webpage.

  If you decide to try it, let us know how that works for you.

E-NKI MANGA, COMICS, AND GENERAL BULK IMAGE CONVERTER FOR KINDLE
I haven't had a chance to try this one.  E-nki describes it this way:

"E-nki is an image processor designed for latest Kindle.
  "It converts common image documents (JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP) into optimized PNG files for e-ink displays, and more important, you can convert your compressed archives directly. (CBR and CBZ too!)
"

  There is also a link to the FAQ, which does answer questions not addressed on the main page.  E-nki is a downloadable file and there's no web-style conversion tool.

On what, specifically, the utility does:
1) Converts pictures to grayscale
2) Tries to remove white borders
3) Resizes pictures while maintaining the aspect ratio
4) Rotates the pictures

  Author E-nki is on vacation but checking mail, so you can send questions to the e-mail address given at the webpage.

  As mentioned, I haven't tried it.  So, it's not a recommendation but a suggestion.  If you can, let us know (in the Comments area) what you think if you try one or both of the tools mentioned here.
  The feedback and useful info (and some raves) on SendtoReader (to Kindle) were very helpful.

As ever, when you enjoy and regularly use a free utility, support the software developer with donations if they feature a donation-method.  That tends to support improving the product and time giving user support.  That includes the popular Instapaper, which itself is used in a few other tools.

Free Kindle book – Student Travel Guide to Europe, 2011


Let’s Go Europe 2011 - Normally .95, FREE currently

Let’s Go Europe 2011: The Student Travel Guide (Kindle Ed.), is authored by Inc., Harvard Student Agencies whose Kindle books with more specific European locations cost between .66 – .99.  They’re providing this Kindle book for .00right now, on what is likely a temporary ‘price.’

Released in January 2011, it has 9 customer reviews with 4 stars out of 5. It’s quite large (at 1,232 pages), as most Kindle books that are mainly text average less than 1 meg, and this one is about 3 megs and will take longer to load, which indicates it has more than the usual number of images. Product description:

‘ From Portugal to the Ukraine, from Norway down to Greece, Europe is a lot to take on.  Luckily, the student adventurers behind Let’s Go Europe 2011 know that any traveler can handle it — with a little help.  Whether whipping through London, Barcelona, and Prague in five days or spending a leisurely year abroad, travelers get all the info they need from Let’s Go.  Their wit and irreverence can brighten even the drabbest Renaissance museum — if travelers didn’t take their advice to skip it.  From German beer halls to Roman ruins, Let’s Go Europe 2011 is the ticket to adventure. ‘

CAVEAT The two Kindle book reviews I see (the rest are paperback reviews) say it’s well worth downloading as a free book, but is written by Harvard students for other students and one reviewer thinks it’s mainly for students with money to spare — I used to go on the /day books :-) And the paperback version had less information on hostel locations than a couple of people wanted.

On the other hand, another reviewer says:

‘ However, to be honest, the listings for stuff like accommodations and nightlife are just UNBEATABLE, so I’m willing to deal with the flaws in order to get those recommendations.

I was trying to keep to a budget, so maybe I’m biased, but when I opened the Lonely Planet and Frommer’s guides in the bookstore, their idea of “cheap” was like…65 euro a night. Even the “shoestring” book was borderline. That’s just not the sort of budget I’m operating on.
Let’s Go, on the other hand, listed hostels and cheap mom-and-pop places that got me through most of Western Europe on 20 euro or less a night. No complaints about those prices. ‘

Some think the writing is fun while others find it geared toward those who look for drinking places.  The maps and even some icons are said to be very hard to read on the Kindle (I recommend viewing these in Landscape mode, which may handle better some bad layout problems mentioned.)

For .00, it’s worth a look.
