This book covers the main grains you can grow at home on a very small scale. I'm planning on preparing a plot this fall and growing some oats next summer. This book has the general info I needed to know. I just need to do a bit of research on the specific seeds grown in my area and I'll be good to go.
Very Informative There aren't many DIY books on growing grains. My main interest was in rice and quinoa and this book covers those quite well. Growing produce in your garden is essential, but being able to include more carb based foods such as grains provides more peace of mind for a full, off-the-grid lifestyle.
