it was amazing
bookshelves: 1st-quarter-2010
Read in January, 2010

great gardening info, including rotation guidelines and ideas for growing vertically (will definitely be trying out the melon a-frame type trellis). nice recipes (will also attempt to make peach wine). while i won't be getting any animals for my yard, there is a lot of good general info on that (chickens, turkeys, ducks/geese, goats, sheep, cows, pigs).

while i think one would want more detail on each section (say on animals, or beekeeping), overall, a very good general book. i plan to purchase this one for my personal library.
