Excellent Audiobook

Lots of detail about planting, growing, harvesting, and preserving everything. I'm not a beginner, but there was a lot in this that I didn't know. Looking forward to warm weather so I can try some new techniques

It explains almost everything you needed

It is what I've used to find all my needs in my attempt to have a homestead of my own. However, everyone should know, the information in this book is a little limited in detail, meaning more research will be required

This book is a thoroughly good read to introduce

This book is a thoroughly good read to introduce you to the idea of efficient food production on a small plot, and effectively bypasses the more traditional folklore-based practices of traditional home veg growers. Various named theories of intensive growing are explained and appraised.

This is well written and expertly formatted, with the one exception that every chapter title appears twice in the table of contents.

This book contained a lot of information.

I'm new to the whole preparedness movement and as such I'm always seeking new ideas. This book contained a lot of information. Some of it is more useful than others but that will vary from person to person. I recommend getting this and reviewing the information contained therein.
