As a city dweller I don't have a lot of space to garden, although I love the taste of fresh veggies! This book has great ideas on how to make the best of my small area, I can't wait for spring!

This is a great basic book that covers many aspects of homesteading/ mini-farming. I originally borrowed it from the library. I decided it would be a wonderful resource manual to have so I bought it.

This book provides a good starting point for self sufficiency. It's set up in a way that is very easy to read and well laid out. It specifies what to do when gardening and planting fruits and trees. Backyard chickens are also covered. I went to the store last spring, bought some chickens and found the information to be very useful. I highly recommend this book to any do it yourselfer.

I haven't implemented the ideas yet, but this book has some great information for growing your own food. It also has a user-friendly style that I like.
