The Admission Funnel: How to Streamline the Private School Admission Process
I wrote/edited this book for Independent School Management, my employer. What I had in mind was a "bible" for private school Admission Directors, something that would provide the nuts and bolts of operating an efficient and effective Admission Office. I compiled and rewrote the material from articles and workshop materials that ISM has developed over the past few decades.

More Veggies in Less Space
Everyone who grows vegetables, particularly the home gardener with limited space, looks for ways to get the biggest harvest possible from every bit of space. Succession planting is the most effective and efficient method of doing this. When a crop is harvested, itís immediately replaced with another crop. In most of the United States and Canada, this means you can grow two or more crops in the same space each growing season. . . .

Grow the Best Root Crops (E-Book Projects)
Learn how to grow, store, and use beets, carrots, celeriac, rooted parsley, parsnips, spring and winter radishes, salsify, scorzonera, turnips, and rutabagas.
Peas for Fall
Peas grow best in cool and humid weather, which is why, peas are considered early-spring crops only. Summer rapidly becomes too hot, and fall crops are impossible because we'd need to start the plants during unfavorably hot weather, or so the thinking goes. My experience proves fall crops of peas are not only possible, but that their flavor is often superior!
For gardeners who want an early start on bean production, fava beans fit the bill. Also called English broad beans, favas (Vicia faba) grow most vigorously in cool, moist rich soil.
