The Backyard Homestead, Edited by Carleen Madigan Perkins #8555
Who knew you could produce all the food you need on just 1/4 acre! This compendium of advice tells you how to raise a garden and how to preserve, can, cure, brew, and pickle the fruits of your labor. From there, the food self-sufficiency information goes on to bee keeping, cheese making, growing and milling grains, and keeping poultry, goats, and other livestock. These may be new concepts for many of us but are certainly fascinating and pertinent topics to explore. Illustrations throughout. 368 pages.
