    Good first start....

    It is an interesting read as well as informative; however, it is not an exhaustive reference. A good first start to self-sufficiency....

    Resource for the Home Gardener

    I've grown a few tomatoes and peas but haven't done much more than that. Caleb's book is an excellent book for someone interested in feeding their family on their garden. He has advice on what seeds to get and where to get them as well as how best to store your produce so it can last through the winter. He also discusses how to raise chickens. This is an excellent resource for the home gardener.
