This is a great gift for a new homeowner or aspiring gardener but I also enjoyed it as a very experienced gardener.
Lots of tips and tricks and ideas to get more out of your growing space, produce more and work in small spaces. I'm not generally the reviewer sort, but this book stood out. I've collected pretty much all the old standby homesteading and gardening books over the years, but this has grown to be my favorite over the year I've owned it. The author writes with deep understanding of his material, but leaves room for creativity and flexibility to be applied to his ideas by the reader.
He also seems so joyfully engaged in what he writes about. I saw this book at barnes and nobles and immediately fell in love with it. I am a person who wants to be off the grid, away from manufactured fruits and vegetables and living a life of self sustainability. Just because this book is based off what happens in the UK does not mean it cannot be utilized in the backwoods of the american south.
There are a lot of wonderful ideas that I've been searching the internet for all here in this amazing book and some. Right now, I am in the middle of composting for the spring, summer, and fall months for my little garden and plotting on ideas that can be utilized for the future. What most people don't realize about this book is that it has everything one needs to live off the land in modern times.
As a future nurse, I picture that the days that I am not working will be much filled with me working outside making my land count and erasing my carbon foot print from the streets of South Carolina.
I love how detailed this book is! It makes me so insipired to change bits of my life to become more self sufficient. I also love that it focuses on waste reduction too, that is so important! Loved the wide amount of useful survival information in this one source. Great spring-board information book for tons of things to help you live better and an increasingly unsettled world. I actually received my book a lot quicker than expected.

The manager stated "he was not aware I feel for the people who never said anything.
Along with my new statement was an invoice for carpet cleaning. This was not included with my first statement. Funny thing is the break down. Carpets black with lots of ground in dirt and soil".
Funny that was not on the move out check list either. I gave you an extra star for making the call to West Wood Apartments Aside from that, no points for the PR work. Clearly the fact I got what I did get back shows that my deposit was taken with out any concern until they got caught. DJA will allow many others to suffer the same fate I feel.
Future renters, video and take pictures when moving in and out. Contract your own cleaners and provide invoices to these pirates.
Save yourself a few hundred dollars and a boat load of stress I moved out in August, with appropriate notice and requested my deposit returned to me within the expected 21 days. Int he beginning of September I received an email requesting my new address. By early October I had still received nothing and began dealing with Ayesha Butt on a basically daily basis to get this taken care of. I finally received the check in late October only to be told by my bank this morning that the check was canceled.
I am understandably extremely upset and no one answers phones or returns calls. I have called both DJA and Ayesha and have emailed with no communication whatsoever. The management is extremely disrespectful and not professional. Furthermore, the tenants do not keep their patios properly organized and safe.
Our friends use to live there and were robbed. When they told management about that homeless man that had been sleeping around the property, they were told to not worry about it.
The management also hangs up and lies on their tenants. Feel free to look around the property, and you will see the filth, and lack of quality of up keep in the community.
Dick and james
You will also notice that people living there break the law outright by not keeping their dogs leashed at all times. There are also tenants that do not have their dogs licensed, or ated rabies vaccinations.
One lady says she really does not give a hoot about that.
Dick James - I will never change
Feel free to contact Animal control to file complaints because your children have the right to live safely. Moreover, all of the people around this community have rights to be around vaccinated animals. Animal Control: You will also notice the advertisement and Propaganda displayed by someone upstairs in the front unit.
The Statue of Liberty! This is not a separation of Diablo Riviera from propaganda. This property management company has no etiquette, and is missing the point of what it means to be a professional management company.
They have a lot to learn. I waited two days with no call back.
It was on a Monday morning and was unable to leave work until 7pm that evening. However; I had my mother retrieve the cashiers check and drop it off at 4 pm the same day. As she dropped it off the manager said the unit was no longer available and that someone else already put a deposit down. I was then denied the return of my application fee. Tying to find housing is not a game, but apparently it is with this complex and or company!!
Take Note! Bella Pointe Apartments 2nd response - I have emailed you twice Kelly with no response. I'm going on to 72 hours waiting for a call back from corporate. Hopefully this shows people how much this company doesn't care. Kelly I have emailed you - with no response back from you.
ate- this company is so ukalonweddings.comofessional. Can't get answers from the front office ladies. Standard response is I don't know. I just do what I'm told or to call corporate to solve your tenant issues. Call corporate and they have the same answers.
A bunch of I don't know or they transfer you to a random voicemail. Thank you to Linda who likes to hang up on people. The lack of professionalism from this company is something else. There isn't any at all!!
Jan 13, James Strawbridge, Dick's son, has inherited his father's enthusiasm for DIY and ecological issues.

They are rude and care less about the tenants. Once again stuck as a tenant with no rights! They do not care that there is a existing lease with no clause about being bought out, changing everything like how we pay our water bills.
Changed the amount but they don't know the new company and surprise surprise there won't be a bill going forward to see what were paying for. Not sure how that even happens? You can walk out your front door when it's getting dark outside and see them crawling all over!
But the infestation on the inside of the house is enough to know there is a HUGE issue. Please be aware. DJB just took over our complex, Meridian Terrace.
Plenty of notices on our doors almost daily of new rules they expect us to follow. They have closed the front office in Saturday's - no notice of that change. Seems as if they have no care for the lease terms that were already put in place that tenants signed with the old management. Still a HUGE issue with dumpster divers through out the night.
Frequently bought together
As a tenant you don't even feel comfortable walking out to your car early in the morning for work. The gates are left open all night allowing anyone to walk the property, making it a huge safety issue.
Let alone can't even take your own garbage out without having someone in there. The new office staff is rude, wont listen to the issues and if they half listen to you, the only answer you get is "this is all I can do for now" there isn't any staff on site living in the complex which doesn't help either.
No one to get ahold of in the middle of the night if there is issues. They state there is a security that drives by 4 times a night. I have never seen one vehicle drive through at night. Please be aware of the issues before signing a lease. Going on year 2 with them as our property managers. Our rep, Karin, is awesome. Very quick to respond whenever we've had issues.
Our last 2 experiences weren't positive, so this is a welcome change. We still have drug dealers in the complex and days where there is nothing but nonstop traffic. The apartment manager says that she knows about the issue and she has put a note on the door This company isn't as responsive as the last one. When a washing machine or dishwasher is having issues if you say anything to the maintenance man he says "ok" with a smile but then doesn't show up to fix it.
You have to walk it in or call the manager. We didn't have to do that with the last company. The neighbors upstairs were incredibly loud also.
Dec 21, To make matters worse, in the worst possible time, Dick's stressed-out travel agent wife, Jane, decides to quit her job-and if this isn't enough-their savings are gone, and nothing can stop Dick and Jane's downward spiral. Now, after a series of failed attempts to keep a job, the desperate and impoverished couple has only one method to stay /10(K). Transformative for both residents and owners, it's all about relationships from the very beginning. We're in this thing together helping dreams come true one property at a time. Dick James & Associates has no problem taking your money! They are dishonest, and will take every penny you give them. From talking to neighbors, and people who have moved out, they take everything they can out of your deposit. They do not give you any information about your move out (Where your keys should be turned in, who they should be /5(21).
But hey it's upstairs neighbors. You can't do anything about it. All in all I'm lookong forward to the day when we can leave. Called the manager today because I was concerned about an issue with a previous bill we had been paying on and got no response from her. So I'll walk in tomorrow and see what she has to say. I hope I can get into a house soon.
Run far away from properties run by this company. They need to seriously be investigated for their shady business practices and slumlord apartment complexes.
Unfortunately it makes you give at least one star. I'd give it negative 5 stars if Apartments have severe pest control issues, the staff at several location have an english speaking deficiency, rude, dress like street walkers, and not to mention the lack of professionalism.
