Thought I'd share a shot of the current stack-of-stuff to read from the library. I've been wanting to try some seed saving this year and better get reading if I am going to get saving..
Loving Gene Logsdon's Homesteading book too. A few points I've liked so far...
Modern Homesteaders (small-time farmers) live on small acreages where they hope to establish a certain level of subsistence while improving the quality of their lives. They will commute to work while continuing to live the way country people like to live.
We modern Homesteaders want to know how to use the best of the old ways along with the best of the new ways to live as independently as possible on our land.
Homesteading: How to Find Independence on the Land
Made me feel better about trying to keep a balance between work and the suburban homestead - especially after commuting to work all weekend! Was also glad to have the stack to read as our internet has been out for the past few days as well (sorry for the unplanned lack of posts..) It's been nice to take some time on the porch and settle in with some good books. My reading stack is always growing (or avalanching off the night stand)... I'd love to know what your fave farm reads are...
