Now that we’ve made it past Thanksgiving, it feels like we’re hurtling straight toward Christmas. I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that it’s less than four weeks away! We have a tree to cut down, a house to decorate, parties to attend, and presents to buy — all while digging over our garden beds, transplanting the last seedlings, and mulching the rest of the yard before El Niño moves in.
Sometimes I wish we had a “real” winter here where all we do is sit inside the house, stoke the fire, and drink mugs of hot cider all day because it’s too damn cold to do anything else. But winter in Southern California just means you add a layer of flannel and put on some socks — and try to keep up with yard work amidst all the holidaying.
Because holidaying, despite its maddening pace of imbibing, devouring, and celebrating, makes me feel really, really lazy. A slip-on-the-fuzzy-shoes, stir-up-some-cardamom-coffee, break-out-the-crafts-and-make-my-own-gift-wrap type of lazy.
I realized after starting this post that it’s going up on Cyber Monday, which seems appropriate. If you like to take your time with presents, as I do, and haven’t yet found a gift for the garden lover or foodie in your life, may I suggest a signed copy of The CSA Cookbook?
Until recently, the only way you could get a signed book was through the venues I visited on my book tour, or perhaps you came across a rogue signed copy at one of the many random bookstores I popped into over the summer, all over the country.
But now, you no longer have to chase down a book as I’m finally carrying copies in my online store! “Store” is a bit of a misnomer, as my only product at the moment is The CSA Cookbook, but it comes signed and even personalized with a message, if you wish.
Books ship to US addresses only, and to ensure delivery by December 25, please place your order by December 16 to allow adequate time for Media Mail.
If you prefer an unsigned book, you can order online from any of my favorite retailers:
- Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
- Barnes & Noble
- Powell’s Books
(By the way, if you order the hardcover from Amazon, you can download the Kindle version for only $2.99!)
And if you’ve been enjoying my book this year, I hope you’ll consider taking a few minutes to leave a review on Amazon. Your honest opinion greatly helps other readers find my book and decide whether or not it’s for them. I truly appreciate your support!
