The Gayla Requires Expensive Emergency Dental Surgery Sale!

On Thursday night I felt shooting pain radiating up my face from my jaw and an emergency visit to the dentist the next morning confirmed that I need a root canal or (god forbid) more. I have an appointment tomorrow to confirm.

And so to raise funds, I am offering, for a limited time, the digital pack version of my pocketbook, Drinking the Summer Garden: Homegrown Thirst Quenchers, Concoctions, Sips, and Nibbles at 30% off the regular price.

SALE $6.99 eBook Bundle

From frosty, low-sugar thirst quenchers that will keep the kids hydrated and happy, to fun and unusual twists on classic grown up libations, DRINKING THE SUMMER GARDEN is packed with more than 40 recipes to satisfy every taste. Featuring instruction on syrup-making, pickling, homegrown garnishes, fermenting, handcrafting liqueurs, as well as handy how-to techniques written and presented in Trail’s irreverent, friendly style, this volume will encourage and inspire further explorations in the kitchen and the garden.

For the price of one format, you get three files that will work on multiple devices:

  • The MOBI file is designed to work with all Kindle models
  • The EPUB file is an ebook format used by a variety of other devices and software (i.e. iPad, iPhone, Aldiko, KOBO)
  • The PDF is the closest approximation to the printed look-and-feel of the guide and can be used on the iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, KOBO, or on your computer using Preview or Acrobat.

Upon payment you will automatically be sent an email with a download links for the individual file formats and the full eBook bundle as a single ZIP file. A Read Me file is attached that briefly explains the formats.

  1. oh no! I hope your mouth is on the mend soon and that maybe it won’t be as steep a cost as first thought . . .

  2. Good luck! I’ve had two root canals. Both were very quick and painless but expensive! You may want to ask your dentist about other options. In many cases a tooth can be pulled instead of having root canal surgery (though many dentists don’t often mention this as an option). It’s a fraction of the cost. Also, the “partial” denture that is made to replace the pulled tooth costs far less than the crown that you will eventually require post root canal (the crown will cost about as much as the surgery).

  3. So Sorry to hear about your Teeth..
    I have had two root canals , with NO Pain..
    Maybe your Dentist will take payments!

    One Dentist I went to a long time ago , could not do a root canal so he pulled my tooth, which is , the back bottom right.
    At that time, I did not know there were special root canal Drs. If I did, my tooth would have been saved.
    That said, You Do NOT want any teeth pulled if you can help it..Or get another opinion.

    When teeth are pulled that can change your whole bite, cause teeth to move, you can get a sunken in face, change the way you talk, change your facial expressions, even if you get a bridge or a tooth implant in that place…(our best friend is a dentist)

    Sorry Trixie..But you do what ever you can to keep your real teeth, there are No Options.
    You do not go the cheap route when it comes to your teeth.False teeth can be very painful from what I have heard.
    If you get in Wisdom teeth. Dentists are now saying, Do Not pull your wisdom teeth if you have room for them in your mouth..There is a reason to try and keep All your teeth as I said before..

    Take Care, and Good Luck.
    Hope your tooth is not as bad as you think..
    Will be thinking about you,

    • I have several family members (one old and another young) who have had teeth pulled as an alternative to root canals and they have had excellent results (in some cases, root canaled teeth eventually had to be pulled because of re-infection of the root). It is only cheap in cost, but not quality, if the replacement tooth is properly fitted. It’s just an option but of course many people do want to keep their own teeth, especially if they are in the front of the mouth.

  4. Oh, ouch! I’m sorry to hear the bad news. Though it’s only a drop in the bucket, I presume, I’m buying the book now. I’ll toast your health every time I make something from it.

  5. Hi Gayla, I hope you get your teeth fixed up soon. I am looking forward to making the herbed lettuce pie- it looks like a great way to use all the herbs from my garden!

    • I hope you like it. It really is remarkable how good that old lettuce tastes when it’s cooked this way. And as I say in the book, I’ve also made it using a range of other greens. Another thing you can do is take the herbed dough, roll it out thinly, and fry that in a dryish pan as an herbed flat bread.

  6. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your arficle seem tto be running off
    the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if thiis is a formating issue or something to do with webb browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to

    soon. Kudos
