What a wonderful book!
This book is one of the best books for those who want to become free suficient and learn about urban agriculture. The authors are not only funny, but very strong to take you step by step through some of the process that can seem intimidating. We bought chickens and used the book to know what to expect each week as they grow. They even help you decide on what breed. I found myself read aloud extracts to the people because some of their chicken stories are so funny. I also felt the section of bee-keeping has been very full. Personally, I’d love to start beekeeping and feel that I could in fact after reading this book. The rest of the book is full of good ideas, recipes easy and things to make your family and your home more productive, less dependent on stores and better health! (big bonus!) The authors have a blog and a newsletter you can register for and I found that it is very useful and informative as well.
This book of love!
I tried to read the other gardening and homesteading books only to leave both bored and overwhelmed. This is the first book of its kind I’ve found encouraging and thoroughly entertaining! These two women know their business and the information that they transmit simply and with great humor. I did find a page that has overwhelmed or bored me, it’s all good! And with all new ideas that I have gleaned, I really feel like I can do it, despite my thumb €grey€! This book of love and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try their hand at gardening or keep chickens/goats/bee, in the suburbs€¦ how cool is that?
The book is great!
I received my copy of the little house in the suburbs today. I have never been so excited. I originally bought it for my son, but it’s so good that I decided to keep it to myself. There a lot of recipes for food€¦ like mayo and mustard, but also raise animals and gardens as well as making gifts of things you have around the House. There is something interesting for everyone. The book is very well written and easy to follow. I will order 2 more copies of this book for my children. They are trying to learn how to become self-sufficient so I know this book will help them also. It is entirely devoted agriculture Backyard home skills, so if you are interested by this€¦ This book is for you.
