This is one of the best books out there for beginners. Although it doesn’t go into great depth, it does give you a solid overview of what you can reasonably do on anywhere from one-tenth of an acre to a half acre, and more. It covers gardening from vegetables, fruits, herbs and grains; livestock; beekeeping and more. There are easy to follow how-to’s and recipes for most categories. This is one any homesteader would want in their personal library.
