A gardening book for anyone who’s dreamed of going back to the land and living a simpler life…
After two city-bred Boomers weather their first, tumultuous year on their rural backyard farm, the couple foresees smooth sailing for the future…then they discover their homesteading journey has only begun. In this sequel to the award-winning memoir, Little Farm in the Foothills, Little Farm Homegrown follows the continuing adventures of modern homesteaders Susan and her husband John as they pursue organic food-growing and self-reliance in the foothills of the Pacific Northwest—experiencing life-changing adversity and the ongoing joys and challenges of living closer to the land and transforming an old clearcut into a working homestead.
In this lively true story, John and Susan cope with the demands of their middle years while raising chickens, creating a self-sufficient lifestyle, and living closer to—and often battling—nature.
Like the first Little Farm in the Foothills memoir, Little Farm Homegrown is a warmhearted tale for gardeners, nature-lovers, and dreamers of all ages!
