bookshelves: reference, garden

This seems like a pretty decent introduction to a variety of topics relating to growing your own food. I moved it to my reference shelf though since i don't think i can sit down and read it cover to cover.

I got a little bored during the gardening chapter since I've done a little reading and a little gardening already. I know what we need to do next and reading past that point isn't necessary yet.

I skipped to the Poultry chapter as we are planning to get 3 laying hens for our back yard. I already knew a little bit about raising chickens but i feel like i've got a better grasp of what i need to do now.
