They even tell you how to raise chickens and other animals! There are several easy projects with detailed instructions, like making a self-watering container out of found buckets. I especially liked the idea of making a potato garden out of cast-off tires. Even if you only do one or two things suggested in the book, you'll be on your way to being more in control of your own food supply.
I don't think you need even 1/4 acre to benefit from all the gardening tips here. Starting out small, trying a few vegetables at a time and learning what will work in your yard is also a way to go. Whether you do that or jump in both feet first, this book will definitely improve both the quantity and quality of the harvest. You will know the kind of time commitment required and how far to take it from there.
Want to milk a goat or grow wheat? Keep bees or smoke meat? Make beer or bake bread? It's all here, along with plenty of other ideas that range from very simple to much more complex.
If you're in the suburbs or have limited space or lack the stomach for slaughter, you might run into problems raising the pigs, chickens, rabbits or other creatures. Try the vegetable patch, or planting fruit trees or designing the landscape to protect your home against the elements. Or perhaps you live in tighter quarters. Then a vertical garden or making flavored vinegars would work. There really is something for everybody here who wants to have a hand in growing or raising some of the food that they eat.
This easy-to-follow book outlines ways to turn a quarter acre of space into a mini-farm, producing 1,400 eggs, 50 pounds of wheat, 60 pounds of fruit, 2,000 pounds of vegetables, 280 pounds of pork and 75 pounds of nuts. You won't feel pressured by this author to turn into Farmer Jones. Start with something easy and move on from there.
