Mit viel Spaß, Obst und Gemüse auf Balkon und Terrasse anbauen und genießen! In diesem Buch schreibt die Autorin über ihre Erfahrungen mit der Balkongärtnerei, gibt Tipps und verrät Tricks wie beispielsweise Möhren und Salat auf dem heimischen Balkon oder der Terrasse am besten gedeihen. Vorsicht! Ein Hobby mit Suchtgefahr! Es ist schon ein bisschen verrückt, Blumenkohl, Kohlrabi und Obstbäumchen auf einem Balkon zwischen all' den üblichen Balkonpflanzen wachsen zu lassen. Dennoch, es funktioniert sehr gut, wie der Balkon der Autorin beweist. In Ballungscentren, wo oftmals der Blick auf graue Häuserfronten der Alltag ist, lassen sich mit einem kleinen Nasch-Balkon idyllische Plätzchen schaffen, die regelrecht zu einer kleinen grünen Oase werden können… ein Platz zum Relaxen, Abschalten und Futtern. Grünkohl und Kohlrabi zwischen Geländer und Balkontür Neben den üblichen Balkonblumen wie Geranien, Fuchsien, Männertreu, etc., wachsen bei Elisabeth Mecklenburg Möhren, Salat, Kohlrabi und auch Grünkohl zwischen Blumen, Erdbeeren und Obstbäumchen. So lassen sich auch auf engstem Raum durchaus kleine, aber vor allem auch gesunde Ernten erzielen. Damit Sie aus diesen das Beste herausholen können, finden Sie in diesem Buch alles was man über das Thema wissen muss.

Coulda Been a Cowboy
Author: Brenda Novak
Grandpa Garnier used to say, Love is like a bucking bronco. It takes guts and determination to hang on, but it's worth the ride. If only Grandpa was around now to help Tyson Garnier out of this mess. The famous pro football player is suddenly saddled with a very public scandal—and an illegitimate child. Tyson needs a good nanny now if he's going to salvage his career. And plain, no-nonsense Dakota Brown is the ideal candidate. Dakota doesn't care for football—or for a man who doesn't seem to want his own son. But she needs this job, and that precious little baby needs her. Dakota isn't Tyson's kind of woman. But the more he sees of her—and the more he sees of his son—the harder he wants to hang on.

English in Europe
Author: Manfred Görlach
Publisher: OUP Oxford
English in Europe charts the English invasion of Europe since 1945. Sixteen distinguished European scholars report on the English words and phrases that have become integral parts of their languages. Each describes the effect of English on the host language, and shows how the process of incorporation often modifies pronunciation and spelling and frequently transforms meaning and use. The languages surveyed are Icelandic, Dutch, French, Spanish, Norwegian, German, Italian, Romanian, Polish, Croatian, Finnish, Albanian, Russian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Greek. The book is designed as a companion to A Dictionary of European Anglicisms but may be read as an independent work. This is the first systematic survey of a phenomenon that is fascinating, alarming, and apparently unstoppable.
