Grow Your Own!

What a Dandy book! Did you know it is possible to produce 1,400 Eggs, 50 pounds of Wheat, 60 pounds Fruit, 2,000 pounds of vegetables, 280 pounds of Pork, and 75 pounds of Nuts, all on just a quarter acre of land.

Incredible right? This book also has directions for how to:
Milk a goat
Prune a tree
Dry herbs
Make Dandelion wine
Bake whole-grain bread
Tap a maple tree
Make fresh mozzarella
Brew Beer
Mill grains for flour
Save seeds for next season

This book is an encyclopedia of knowledge. Just by thumbing through it I learned that old eggs float, and beets taste best when they are the size of a golfball. Oh let the farming begin.
