Perennial Vegetable Gardening with Eric Toensmeier (DVD)
Manufacturer: Chelsea Green Publishing
Imagine growing vegetables that require just about the same amount of care as perennial flowers and shrubs, need no annual tilling or planting, yet thrive and produce abundant and nutritious crops throughout the season. In this DVD a culmination of workshops recorded in Mexico, Florida, and Massachusetts plant specialist Eric Toensmeier introduces gardeners to more than 100 species of little-known, underappreciated plants. Ranging beyond the usual suspects (asparagus, rhubarb, and artichoke) to include such delights as ground cherry, ramps, air potatoes, the fragrant spring tree, and the much-sought-after, antioxidant-rich wolfberry (also known as the goji berry), Toensmeier explains how to raise, tend, harvest, and cook with plants that yield great crops and culinary satisfaction. Toensmeier also takes viewers on a plant-by-plant tour of his garden in Massachusetts.
Zenchantment presents Zen Garden- Autumn Meditation, a sublimely beautiful relaxation DVD capturing the many moods of Autumn found throughout Japanese gardens. Colorful leaves (koyo) are to the Japanese Autumn what cherry blossoms are to Spring. During the peak of autumn, it is customary to set aside time to quietly observe the simple beauty of a fall landscape filled with maple trees, and contemplate the changing of the seasons. Traditionally in Japan,autumn was celebrated to pray for a good harvest and to celebrate the local Shinto gods. Zen Garden- Autumn Meditation captures the serenity and contemplative spirit of fall season in a Japanese garden, as the landscape transforms into a vibrant palette of autumnal colors. Maple trees turn to fiery oranges, flaming yellows and shimmer in a slight breeze. A golden hued branch is reflected in the quiet ripples of a tranquil koi pond. A cluster of brilliant ruby red leaves flutter vibrantly against a blue waterfall. Produced by Zenchantment, Zen Garden â€“ Autumn Meditations is a pure visual journey embracing the passing of the fall seasonâ€¦a simple reflection on the ephemeral nature of life. Directed by Milos Kuhlman, and captured in high definition wide screen, Zen Garden â€“ Autumn Meditation DVD is authored to loop automatically, endlessly. Just simply load the DVD and enjoy.

In this DVD, finishing expert Michael Dresdner shows you what you need to know to become a proficient wood finisher, starting with classic surface-prep problems and their solutions -- how to recognize and remove dents, how to recognize and fill gouges, how to pre-raise wood grain to get the best results under waterborne finishes, and, most important, how to sand wood. You'll learn how to apply a simple wax finish, shellac-and-wax, and a polyurethane with only a rag for a tool. It's a simple process: rag on your finish, wipe it off, let it dry, recoat. You've got to see this to learn how little you have to do to get a classy, silky, surface thats ideal for most indoor furniture. Next, Dresdner visits woodfinishing expert Chris Minick, who teaches you how to brush on a flawless polyurethane varnish finish. Finally, Dresdner explains the simple principles of spray finishing and guides you through the potentially confusing landscape of modern spraying tools. You'll find out how to set up each type of spray equipment, how to adjust spray patterns, and how to apply all the major coatings to a variety of furniture types -- a chair, a tabletop, a bookcase -- and to a guitar. This DVD is a compilation of three Video Workshops (Starting to Finish, Three Simple Finishes, and Spray Basics) and a segment from The Woodfinishing Video.
