Homegrown Whole Grains a practical easy to read useful book for the home gardener. The basics on growing grains on a small scale and small space. My goal to grow a crop within a 10 x 10 plot then to expand over time if this is productive. With the possibility of raising chickens this could be a big plus.
Homegrown Whole Grains provides a lot of specifics I've been unable to find elsewhere about planting dates and growing zones for grains in the backyard. It's got lots of pretty illustrations and is a quick read. See the tidbits I compiled from Home-grown Whole Grains on my blog.
Its a gardening book. For grains. Set in America. So you have to go through the mental sojourns of calculating ounces and seasons out to the right amounts. It was interesting. I loved reading about windborn farm, but guess what you can't get heritage grains in Australia without an import permit which is a load of lardidah!

Recommends it for: plant fanatics, survivalists
Clear, well-organized, and with great illustrations showing you how to harvest, clean, and store your grain. With an excellent appendix full of resources for buying seed, storage containers, mills, and whole grains, and with recommended websites, books, and movies. The most exciting gardening book I've read in years.
