it was ok
bookshelves: how-to
Read from April 07 to 14, 2012

Anyone else feel completely overhwelmed with the amount of information in this book? I just wanted some tips on how to better use the small space that I have for my garden. Instead, I got a ton of info. on how to build a chicken coop and plant various trees. I also learned about various vegetables that won't grow in Utah to how to can to how to raise livestock including cows! I DO NOT want a cow in my backyard! I also found out how to make cheese from the milk from that cow. Oh, and ways to prune the trees and bushes. What I didn't find was some practical information on how to use the tiny space that I have.

The amount of information was overwhelming while the practical application of that information was underwhelming.
