Gardening Books


#1

Went to a book sale the other day, got these 4 books for $2.50.


#2

Nice!!


#3

I barely beat some other hippie who probably would have taken a couple of them.

The first book How To Grow Vegetables and Fruits By The Organic Method looks pretty awesome, it’s from 1965, 926 pages.


#4

A good gardener can be an influential man (or woman, I suppose). There was a movie about that.


#5

Double score!!


#6

I like to watch.


#7

They probably transported the produce in their Ford Country Squire wagon.:grin:


#8

This made me think of a fantastic store we have here called Lee Valley. If nothing else, their catalogues are awesome but they also selling really neat but high quality stuff. I just noticed they are in the US now as well so you might want to check them out:

Specifically their gardening catalogue: http://www.leevalley.com/us/home/OnlineCatalog.aspx?id=e8aa9c6b

I don’t know how comparable they are but we love them up here in Canada.

Nice stuff but too buku for me!


#10

Buku? Wassat?


#11

Too Buku - international language for “too much.” But when I decide I need a $60 pair of pruners I’ll look them up…


#12

Some stuff can be spendy but the quality is tops.


#13

I’m sure it’s a hell of a pair of pruners that would probably last forever.


#14

Probably “beaucoup”


#15

Sounds like it :slight_smile:


#16

Wabbit is right, I didn’t know the correct word for it even though I’ve seen the correct version numerous times used in other ways, I always thought it was some slang. :slight_smile:


#17

It is or was, the grunts brought it home from Nam and typically corrupted the pronunciation to buku or bookoo


#18

I think I heard it used by some military guys that way is where I picked it up from.


#19

I used to hear it as an attached adjective, never by itself but with something to modify, like “that’ll cost buku bucks”. Usually from my mom, not from others, tho.


#20

Everywhere you go though, no matter what you’re haggling over, Too Buku is the universal language, they all know what that means. lol
