If you're interested in growing grain in your garden, a good book on the subject is "Homegrown Whole Grains" by Sara Pitzer (Storey Publishing, 2009, $14.95).

As Pitzer notes, in a 10-foot-square plot, backyard farmers can grow enough wheat to harvest 50 pounds in a single afternoon—and that can be baked into 50 loaves of fresh bread.

Jim PathFinder Ewing is the author of five books on energy medicine and eco-spirituality published by Findhorn Press. His next book, to be published in the fall, is "Conscious Food: Sustainable Growing, Spiritual Eating." Find Jim on Facebook, follow him on Twitter @edibleprayers or visit blueskywaters.com.
