At Ellipsis Books and More we love vintage books. Well mostly we love books. But we also love green living. Right now we sell used, vintage, and antiquarian books via http://ellipsis.alibrisstore.com/ (shameless plug).

This blog will chronicle Ellipsis as it grows. We plan to become a completely sustainable, zero waste business. All of our practices and decisions will lead to this goal.

Broccoli

Our little broccolis are doing wonderful!

Currently we are still in stage one: Online Store and Learning to Garden. Once our greenhouse goes up, we will start growing tea plants or Camelia Sinensis. This plant is where green, black, yellow, white, and oolong are derived from. We will also do herbal tea blends. Books and tea just go together.

The physical Ellipsis store will house used and vintage books and a tea bar that will also feature local, in-season fruit juices, smoothies, and snacks.

Our gardens are doing great. They are dug, tilled, and supplemented with biochar (an amazing natural supplement) The calendula, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuces, and spinach as well as our sunflowers and nasturtiums have all spouted and are looking good!

We just wish the weather would decide on a direction. We went from 90 degree days to 36 degree nights within a week. So we’re afraid to plant anything else! Here’s to the future!
