Too Many Books

I started this blog for information for me as I was sick and tired of looking through all the web sites, all my books and all the information I have downloaded over the years.  I have at the moment a stack of books sitting on my kitchen table that is about 3 feet tall.  It is a wonder the table is still standing.  Last year I bought a cookbook program to put all of my recipes into.  The goal was to turn the many books into a few.  I have stall on that for the moment, life got in the way.

I am getting very frustrated yet again at finding the information that I want, in one place in a manner that is easy for me to read.  So yet again, I think I will try to start putting all of the information into book form to be able to print off & bind.

I have started a spreadsheet for the food value of different beans to eat which ones I should plant.  With limited room, it only makes sense to plant the ones that are the healthiest.
