Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started:
Buying and saving seeds
Establishing raised beds
Soil fertility practices
Dealing with pest and disease problems
Selling your produce arm planning, and much more.
Because self-sufficiency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high.
Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.
