Description
The former managing editor of Horticulture magazine, Carleen Madigan learned her homesteading skills living on an organic farm outside Boston; here she offers a compendium of time-tested, practical advice on how to feed our families using plants and animals raised at home. From growing fruits and vegetables to churning butter and raising chickens, The Backyard Homestead has all the how-to that enterprising homeowners need to produce a complete array of food items. For the garden, planning charts and a vegetable growing guide are accompanied by simple techniques for canning, drying, and freezing, as well as the hows, whens, and wheres of growing fruits, herbs, and nuts, with recipes for herb teas and techniques for making wines. A chapter on grains offers an overview of growing wheat and corn, along with drying, storing, and milling solutions. Part two moves from plant to animal products, beginning with an overview of chicken keeping and moving on to larger animals and dairy production.
