really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction
Read in June, 2010

This is a book I am sure I will reference again and again. It covers many topics such as keeping chickens, other livestock such as goats, gardening, canning, and even making maple syrup. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make more of an effort to live off their land and learn some useful skills. One reviewer online pointed out that some of the web urls are already out of date in the resources, but overall it is a great beginner's guide to making the most out of a small plot of land. I look forward to researching many of the topics in depth.
